What is Dementia Care?
Dementia can be defined as a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks, which in turn can negatively interfere with a person’s daily life. Symptoms may include:
- difficulties with thinking
- changes in mood or behavior.
Dementia care is designed to help people experiencing these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths while assisting with tasks that he or she is unable to perform. Our specialized senior care helps keep adults safe.

Understanding Dementia Care & Alzheimer’s Care
Comfort Keepers of Calgary, AB is dedicated to preserving the happiness and independence of seniors living in their own homes for as long as safely possible.
In addition to Alzheimer’s care and dementia care, our caregivers are also trained to implement Comfort Keepers’ unique Interactive Caregiving™ system. With Interactive Caregiving, the in home care provider will get to know the senior on a personal level, learning about likes, dislikes and even past events in the senior’s life. While developing a relationship with the senior, the caregiver can plan activities that stimulate mental or physical exercise and have been shown to create more lucid thought. The senior and care provider can listen to music together from the senior’s favorite era, read an old favorite book or even do memory exercises like looking through family photos or discussing current events.
Keeping seniors engaged physically and mentally can help to reduce challenging behavior and remain safe and calm.
