In addition to providing all the industry standards, we also take things a step further and build interactive caregiving into all of our dementia and Alzheimer’s care plans.
With Interactive Caregiving, the memory care provider will get to know the senior on a personal level. They will take time to learn about your loved one’s likes, dislikes, and history. While developing a relationship with the senior, the elder care provider will plan activities that stimulate the mind and produce more lucid thoughts.
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. These simple actions can help promote happiness, lessen confusion, and extend independence.
We customize our memory care services to meet your loved one’s specific needs. This includes taking into account his or her current capabilities. We can provide respite care for just a few hours a week or round-the-clock in-home care. With our 24/7 availability, our comfort keepers work in shifts to ensure the safety and comfort of your loved ones.
Our group of amazing caregivers is backed by a talented leader. Keeping seniors engaged physically and mentally can help to reduce challenging behavior and remain safe and calm.
