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 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.
Keeping seniors engaged physically and mentally can help to reduce challenging behavior and remain safe and calm.
