When It Comes to Memory Care in Okanagan, You’re Not Alone

Alzheimer’s Disease And Dementia Care affects many families. At Comfort Keepers of Kelowna, we understand the struggles you face when it comes to caring for a senior with Alzheimer’s or dementia. And, even if the case is advanced, we’re here to help. Our caregivers receive special training to ensure they can provide professional memory care services. This imbues them with knowledge of how these diseases progress and how they can affect behavior.

It can be difficult to watch your loved one in Kelowna or Vernon as their memory start to slip. It can invoke feelings of guilt, anger, and loneliness. We truly sympathize with these feelings and work hard to lessen discomfort. To learn more about our dementia and Alzheimer’s care in the Okanagan region, we invite you to give us a call.

Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia

Dementia is a decline in cognitive ability—such as memory loss—that seriously impacts a person’s ability to function. Common symptoms of this type of disorder include difficulty concentrating, confusion, difficulty following conversations, and pronounced memory changes. As the disease advances, safety can be impacted. Below are a few things our clients in Kelowna and Vernon often experience before getting memory care assistance:

  • A loved one shows up far from home with no memory of how or why they got there
  • Forgetfulness, such as neglecting to turn off a stove, that can lead to severe physical harm
  • Sudden mood changes or bewilderment at their surrounding environments
  • Difficulty holding conversations or writing

How Comfort Keepers of Kelowna Can Help

Our Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care providers provide professional, research-based memory care in Kelowna, Vernon, and the surrounding areas. Typical memory care services include:

  • Bathing and grooming assistance
  • Appointment management and transportation
  • Behavioral change management
  • Environmental safety management
  • Meal preparation
  • Medication management

 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.
