Even if your senior loved one is relatively healthy, a diagnosis of dementia can make it difficult to manage a household, attend to personal care needs, and remember to take important medications. This could complicate the plan to keep your loved one safe, healthy, and comfortable at home. Home Care Assistance of Cedar Falls, IA, offers a solution. Our professional caregivers are experts in managing the everyday needs of seniors with dementia. With our help, clients enjoy a safer and more comfortable home environment, increased companionship, and the comfort of knowing compassionate dementia care is always there when they need it most.
Seniors with dementia have varying care needs, and properly meeting these needs leads to a happier and healthier lifestyle. Cedar Falls Home Care Assistance’s individualized dementia care plans hone in on the exact tasks seniors need help with the most. Developed with input from seniors and their families, we take into consideration individual needs, challenges, and goals. As dementia progresses, the care plan can be easily adapted to remain beneficial and appropriate. Here are some tasks often included in our dementia care plans:
For some seniors, the changes that accompany dementia are gradual, and for others, they come on suddenly. Home Care Assistance Cedar Falls offers flexible scheduling that fits your family’s needs and schedule. Whether your loved one needs overnight or early morning assistance, support while you are away at work, or live-in care to make long-distance caregiving easier, we can create a care plan to meet your family’s needs. Our Care Managers also remain on call to assist in the event of an emergency and quickly accommodate any schedule modifications should your loved one’s needs change.
Taking a positive approach to aging in place means more than simply meeting basic care needs. It also involves empowering the senior to feel valued. At Home Care Assistance in Cedar Falls, our support extends beyond basic help with meals and personal care. It also includes programs that positively impact the way seniors age. Our proprietary Cognitive Therapeutics Method is one example. This innovative program implements stimulating games and activities into the care plan to enhance mental acuity and even slow the progression of dementia. All our memory care professionals are trained in this revolutionary program, and it is included at no additional charge in care plans for our clients with dementia.
