Dementia means more than just being forgetful
Many people fail to understand that the effects of Alzheimer’s and various forms of dementia mean reality has changed drastically for a senior parent or loved one. Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease go beyond forgetfulness. They cause hardship and confusion not only for seniors or those with early onset Alzheimer’s but for their family members and primary personal support workers.
As part of our dementia care and Alzheimer’s care, Comfort Keepers are trained to recognize the early signs of these diseases and how to aid those who are afflicted. They can also help guide the client’s family members in what to expect and how to deal with the devastating effects both Alzheimer’s and dementia can have.
Interactive Caregiving adds a personal connection
Caregivers recognize and understand symptoms, how behavior is affected and that the progression of the disease varies for different individuals. Comfort Keepers unique Interactive Caregiving approach allows the personal support worker to get to know the senior on a personal level. They learn about likes, dislikes, and the senior’s past life. This helps in planning mentally stimulating and physical activities that can help create clarity.
The senior and care provider can, for example:
- listen to music together from the senior’s favorite era
- do memory exercises such as looking through family photos
- play a friendly round of a board game or solve puzzles
- share any hobbies and activities the senior may enjoy
- read together or discuss their favorite books
Personal Support Workers won’t take over tasks an individual with Alzheimer’s or dementia may be used to doing, but they will be there to assist and guide them. Keeping Alzheimer and dementia clients active both physically and mentally, are other ways Comfort Keepers can help maintain safety and calmness.
Comfort Keepers Alzheimer’s home care is dedicated to preserving the well-being and independence of seniors and other clients in their own homes, as long as is safely possible.
