Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care
Comfort Keepers® Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care is dedicated to preserving the happiness and independence of seniors living in their own homes for as long as safely possible.
How Comfort Keepers Can Help
Our caregivers are trained in Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care and are also trained to implement Comfort Keepers’ unique Interactive Caregiving™ system. With Interactive Caregiving, the Alzheimer’s disease and dementia 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 could help the senior simulate mental or physical activities that 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.
