If you have a family member with dementia, you know that it affects every aspect of their life. Dementia can diminish their ability to understand and communicate, it can alter their behavior and moods, and it can affect their physical health.
DementiaWise: Our Home Care Services Makes Dementia Care Easier
Care for elderly people with dementia (including Alzheimer’s Disease and other types) can be a challenging, but it can be made easier and more effective. With our innovative DementiaWise home care service and the support of our specially trained caregivers, your loved one can function better, allowing them to have better days. Care is much easier with DementiaWise best care practices, as our innovative dementia care program prevents difficult behavior before it begins.
Whether your loved has Alzheimer’s Disease, Vascular Dementia, Lewy Body Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia, Mild Cognitive Impairment, or some other type, our specially-trained caregivers can help your loved one with dementia be as independent as possible, for as long as possible. Our home care service makes it easier for families to enjoy precious time with their loved one, despite their dementia, or how advanced it may become.
DementiaWise allows for a rich and rewarding life that allows you and your loved one to live your best possible life.
How we can help
Family members often have work and family obligations or health care challenges, that make it difficult to care for their aging parents or other loved ones. For the main family caregiver, the job can be exhausting, isolating and overwhelming.
As dementia gets worse, we can help take some responsibility off your plate. We are available for as little as a few hours a week or can provide 24 hour home care, seven days a week. Whether we care for elderly or other loved ones, our specially-trained DementiaWise caregivers will provide the best personalized care possible.
The quality of our dementia caregivers is unmatched.
Before meeting your family and beginning their care, your caregiver receives dementia care training in the most effective and advanced care techniques. Each caregiver is also briefed on your loved one’s needs and preferences. Your caregiver will:
• Deliver customized daily care
• Assist with physical and emotional needs
• Implement proven best practices for dementia care
• Follow strategies to decrease challenging dementia behavior
• Engage in meaningful activities
• Support and stimulate remaining abilities
With our help, you can both live life on your terms and enjoy every precious moment.
