When providing supportive home care services, we at ComForCare encourage our clients’ independence whenever possible. Allowing them to do the things they still can result in more cooperation and acceptance of care. We understand that remaining independent is important for self-esteem and can improve clients’ perspectives and outlook, especially when coping with the diagnosis of a condition such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Dementia Care Challenges
It is difficult to watch how dementia affects a loved one. As a family caregiver, you may feel isolated, overwhelmed and exhausted. While no one knows your loved one better than you, most family caregivers do not know how to make dementia care easier and more effective. We work with you to provide respite when you need it while providing your loved one with the support and assistance they need.
DementiaWise™ - Where Experience and Compassion Improve Dementia Care
Through our DementiaWise program, we deliver custom, in-home care services designed to make your loved one’s days better. We take special care to recognize behavioral triggers in order to prevent or reduce any challenging dementia behaviors. This means better days for you too!
With the help of our specially-trained caregivers, our non-medical home care services allow individuals with any type or stage of dementia do more of what they enjoy in the familiarity and comfort of their own home. In the past, it was commonly recommended that individuals suffering from dementia symptoms be admitted to facilities to protect their safety. However, moving into unfamiliar surroundings can be frightening for dementia sufferers and can exacerbate symptoms. Dementia care in-home services present a solution that is both comforting and effective.
