At Heart for Seniors Home Healthcare, we understand the multitude of emotions that can accompany a Dementia of Alzheimer’s diagnosis. When your loved one is diagnosed with one of these scary diseases, it is hard to know how to proceed. One of the most important things you can do when caring for an individual with Alzheimer’s or Dementia is to ensure their safety.
Unfortunately, this often requires them to move to a healthcare facility, removing them from the comfort of their home and familiar surroundings. We have seen the negative effects that this move can cause to an individual’s cognitive abilities and emotional health as they attempt to navigate an already complex diagnosis.
Our team of Broken Arrow Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care professionals can provide your loved one with a high quality of life, ensuring their safety at all times. With the help of an in-home health caregiver, your loved one can continue to navigate their daily routine in the comfort of their own home, something that can greatly impact their mental and emotional health!
Both Dementia and Alzheimer’s are complex diseases, requiring a certain level of care and attention. Without proper training on the effects of these conditions, caregivers are often unable to provide the physical, mental, and emotional care that your loved one deserves.
At Heart for Seniors Home Healthcare, we specialize in caring for individuals in various stages of Alzheimer’s or Dementia. Our caregivers are trained in providing the focused care and attention your loved one deserves, allowing them to remain safely within the comfort of their home for as long as possible. By providing a high quality of life, our team of in-home caregivers helps individuals of all ages remain healthy and happy despite their cognitive condition.
While your loved one may require simple supervision at the onset of their disease, it is important to provide them with access to additional in-home care services as their condition progresses. There are a number of Dementia and Alzheimer’s care services that we offer at Heart for Seniors Home Healthcare including the following:
Companion services are often the first step in in-home care for an individual suffering from Alzheimer’s or Dementia. During this phase of care, our caregivers work to build trust with your loved one, providing them with both supervision and company. At the onset of their condition, your loved one may be able to maintain their daily routine without much assistance. Partnering with a caregiver from Heart for Seniors Home Healthcare during this time provides you with the comfort of knowing that your loved one is safe and healthy at all times.
Oftentimes, personal hygiene is the first thing to suffer when an individual is diagnosed with Dementia or Alzheimer’s. Personal care services cater to the unique needs and abilities of the individual, always looking for ways to encourage independence in daily tasks.
An in-home caregiver from Heart for Seniors Home Healthcare can assist your loved one with tasks such as dressing, bathing, eating, exercising, or using the bathroom. Completing these simple tasks each day can go a long way in preserving your loved one’s independence and mental health.
One of the most time-consuming tasks of caring for someone with Dementia or Alzheimer’s is keeping up with household chores and responsibilities. A professional caregiver from Heart for Seniors Home Healthcare can assist with household chores such as shopping, meal preparation, laundry, or light housekeeping.
Through these services, your loved one can enjoy the comfort of a clean living space while providing you with the ability to enjoy your time together free of chores.
There may come a time when your loved one requires skilled nursing care. At Heart for Seniors Home Healthcare, we can provide your loved one with a variety of skilled nursing services in the comfort of their own home. Services such as wound care, IV therapy, blood tests, visual assessments, and more can be easily completed by a skilled nursing caregiver.
At Heart for Seniors Home Healthcare, we understand that each client is unique.
