Providing care for a senior loved one with Alzheimer’s can take a toll on family caregivers. As your loved one’s care needs increase, attention to your own health and family may be put on the back burner. This not only impacts your wellbeing but the wellbeing of the entire family unit. At Home Care Assistance of Cedar Falls, IA, we understand the challenges families face when a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Our professional Alzheimer’s caregivers are committed to providing one-on-one care to seniors, delivered with dignity and individualized to meet their exact needs. With our services in place, families have an easier time balancing their responsibilities, managing the diagnosis, and helping their loved ones safely age in place.
For many families, finding an in-home Alzheimer’s care provider for a vulnerable senior can be intimidating. At Home Care Assistance in Cedar Falls, we take great measures to protect seniors with Alzheimer’s by providing trusted caregivers. Our professional Alzheimer’s caregivers undergo extensive interviews, and we check backgrounds and personal and professional references to ensure they live up to our incredibly high standards. Once hired, all employees are bonded and insured, and we also handle payroll, benefits, and provide backup coverage to simplify the process of finding and maintaining high-quality Alzheimer’s care. Seniors with Alzheimer’s are sometimes suspicious when strangers enter the home to assist them. We realize overcoming these suspicions involves providing consistent care and encouraging caregivers to build relationships with clients. Our complimentary matching service pairs seniors and caregivers based on personalities, likes and dislikes, interests, and specific care needs. This helps seniors feel comfortable accepting necessary care and makes providing care positive, enjoyable, and productive.
Giving life purpose delays the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and makes home a more pleasant place to be. One of the ways we help seniors with Alzheimer’s maintain a sense of purpose is by engaging them in mentally stimulating activities. Home Care Assistance University provides our memory care professionals with innovative training that enhances Alzheimer’s home care and promotes quality of life. Programs such as our Cognitive Therapeutics Method are then implemented into the care plan to engage cognitive domains and encourage positive lifestyle choices.
Even when excellent care is provided, a senior’s needs often change while progressing through the stages of Alzheimer’s. This sometimes happens quickly, but having high-quality Alzheimer’s care in place makes the transition easier for seniors and family members to manage. The services provided by Cedar Falls Home Care Assistance are some of the most flexible in the industry. Our Care Managers remain on call and are ready to assist in the event of an emergency or make changes to your loved one’s care plan at any time.
