Many seniors and their families suffer from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Comfort Keepers recognizes the challenges that families face when caring for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, especially when they want to stay at home safely. This is why we provide a variety of dementia care services to assist seniors with cognitive impairment in remaining safe and healthy at home.
Our dementia care programs can aid you in caring for your loved one at home while also giving the essential assistance and high-quality care. We think that everyone, regardless of age or degree of care, deserves to have moments of connection, purpose, and elevation.
The Advantages of In-Home Dementia Care Programs
There are numerous advantages of receiving dementia care at home, particularly for seniors suffering from cognitive decline:
- Families will have a consistent caregiver (or team of caregivers) to establish a familiar relationship with their loved one.

Our caregivers are tested for empathy, educated to help elders with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, and trained to find ways to lift the spirits of clients and their families through specialized home care planning.

This allows us to blend mental and physical activity models. Our clients and caregivers form friendships. They listen to music from their favorite era on a regular basis, read an old favorite book, or engage in memory activities like going through family photos or debating recent events.
