Caring for a parent or other senior loved one with dementia can be a rewarding experience. Being the primary caregiver allows you to remain active in you loved one’s life and connect with them on a daily basis. However, providing full-time care can also be time-consuming, physically demanding, and stressful. If you need extra assistance providing dementia care to a loved one, Comfort Keepers Home Care of Ottawa can help.
We understand that bringing a caregiver into your home or your loved one’s home can be an intimidating experience. Each of our caregivers – whom we call Comfort Keepers – are carefully selected and trained to provide expert in home care. Each plan of care is customized to meet the unique care needs of your senior loved one.
Dementia care plans can include any of our senior care services, including personal hygiene, dressing and grooming, meal preparation, transferring and positioning, mobility assistance, toileting and incontinence care, and medication reminders.
For seniors with dementia, driving and remembering doctor’s appointments may become difficult. Our transportation services ensure that your loved one arrives at appointments safely and as scheduled. Our caregivers can also accompany seniors to their appointments, making notes and asking questions as directed by your family.
Maintaining a clean, comfortable living environment is essential for independent seniors. Our light housekeeping services include washing and folding clothes, organizing and tidying the kitchen, and making sure living areas are hazard free. Caregivers encourage seniors to participate, as much as they are able, in their own care and engage in conversation and companionship throughout the day.
