When providing supportive home care services, our team at ComForCare West Hollywood believe that it is important to encourage our clients’ independence whenever possible. Our experience has taught us that encouraging our clients to perform the activities they are still physically able to do results in higher cooperation and acceptance of care.
We know that for many seniors, the ability to remain independent is highly valued and can have an important impact on self esteem. Being able to perform tasks and activities independently can help to improve clients’ confidence and outlook on life, especially when it comes to coping with the diagnosis of a condition such as Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
Dementia Care Challenges
The way that dementia affects a loved one can be difficult to watch. It is common for family caregivers to feel overwhelmed, exhausted and isolated during these times. While no one knows your loved one better than you, most family caregivers are unaware of the best options that can make dementia care easier and more effective. At ComForCare, our caregivers work with you to provide relief when you need it and to provide your loved one with the support and assistance that they need.
DementiaWise™ - Where Experience and Compassion Improve Dementia Care
Through our DementiaWise program, we deliver customized in-home care services that are developed with your loved one in mind. In order to prevent and reduce any challenging dementia behaviors, our caregivers are specially trained to recognize specific behavioral trigger points. This knowledge is useful in helping your loved one live comfortably on a day-to-day basis.
With the assistance of our highly-trained caregivers, our non-medical in-home care services are available to help seniors with any type or stage of dementia continue to do the things that they enjoy while living in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. This allows individuals to be effectively cared for, while enhancing quality of life.
In the past, it was commonly recommended that individuals suffering from dementia symptoms be admitted to facilities in order to protect their safety and wellbeing. However, moving into a new and unfamiliar setting can be frightening and dangerous for those suffering from dementia symptoms. In some cases, a change in environment can even worsen symptoms. Our in-home dementia care services present a solution that is both comforting and effective for our clients and their loved ones.
