Individuals with Alzheimer's or dementia can still maintain healthy and productive lives in spite of their dementia. It is important that those living with dementia receive appropriate care. That's where ComForCare in Delray Beach can help. At ComForCare, we are the industry leaders in Alzheimer's and dementia care with our specially created DementiaWise™ program and our National Certified Alzheimer’s Educator designation. We also offer a myriad of other services that our highly trained elder care specialists can do for your loved one.
Dementia is an umbrella term that describes a person’s loss of mental ability that interferes with everyday life. Dementia can affect memory, motor skills, language, judgement and many aspects of daily life. These challenges are perfectly managed by ComForCare's specialized programs that can help your loved one.
The DementiaWise™ Program
Our DementiaWise™ program is an industry leading therapeutic program for our clients who have Alzheimer's and dementia. DementiaWise™ was developed by ComForCare using a proven method called habilitation therapy as one of the best ways to work with clients with dementia. Our home care providers utilize the memories and skills our clients have retained.
This is in contrast to other therapy methods that focus on trying to "bring back" those skills that the client has lost. Attempting to bring back these memories or re-teach these skills often results in a frustrated and discouraged client while still doing little to improve their quality of life. DementiaWise's™ focus on the remaining skills and memories maintains those skills for longer and can help your loved one have more "good days."
Alzheimer's is one kind of dementia, which is why the DementiaWise™ program makes such a difference for our clients with Alzheimer’s. Research has shown that cognitive training is extremely beneficial for those who have Alzheimer's, which is where the qualified elder care professionals at ComForCare in Delray Beach come in. Utilizing a wide variety of tools and programs, our caregivers can greatly reduce the number of "bad days" that your loved one might suffer from, thereby improving the client's quality of life.
One program that our elder home care professionals are trained in involves using music to stimulate the brain and memory. Research indicates that using music can greatly improve motor function and cognitive function. In addition, utilizing music can help alleviate our client's stress and increase the amount of time that your loved one spends happy and relaxed. That is the ultimate goal of our caregivers at ComForCare Delray Beach. If we can improve our clients' quality of life and facilitate a healthy and happy home environment, then we have done our job.
It has been shown that social interaction is important for those living with Alzheimer's and dementia. At ComForCare, we take great measures to ensure that your loved one receives quality companion care, including time spent engaging with our trained elder care providers. Our caregivers spend time with your loved one playing cards, reading aloud, planning and preparing meals and more.
An additional service our caregivers provide to our clients is help scheduling social interactions outside the home. Our senior care professionals can provide transportation to and from senior activities as well as assistance participating in these activities. When a client with Alzheimer's is socially stimulated, they have more good days resulting in an improved quality of life.
