Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

OUR CAREGIVERS POSSESS A COMPREHENSIVE UNDERSTANDING ON HOW TO CARE FOR THOSE WITH ALZHEIMER'S

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there are around 5.7 million people living with the disease in the United States alone. This chronic illness impacts an individual’s memory, as well as their ability to complete basic tasks on a day-to-day basis. While Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia can be treated with medications and management, there is no cure. There are, however, care strategies and best practices to allow a person suffering from the disease to continue living safely and productively.

At Coastal Home Care, our caregivers possess a comprehensive understanding on how to tend to those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia with high levels of professionalism, respect, and empathy. We recognize that no two cases of dementia are exactly the same, and that the level and type of support required will vary from person to person. As we devise what routines and coping strategies are best for each individual under our care, major aspects we consider are: day-to-day management, safety, comfort, and communication.

What We Provide

1

Day-to-Day Management

Each day, victims of dementia face challenges with basic tasks such as bathing or showering, picking out clothes and getting dressed, preparing meals, grocery shopping, and housework. On top of those, the additional stressors of remembering to take medications and attend doctor’s visits must be maintained with the proper communicative approaches and precise routine. Help managing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, including sundowning and other sleep issues, irritability, depression, hallucinations, memory loss, repetition, and wandering, requires assistance from professionals that understand the reasons behind each of these behaviors, and how to respond to them in a constructive manner. Choosing Coastal Home Care guarantees that you will be provided highly capable, trained nursing professionals.

Comfort

As a person suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia moves from the early to middle and late stages of the disease, the stress of their progressing symptoms can be a large emotional burden on both them and their family members. In addition to the frustration of memory loss, anxiety and depression can be taxing and difficult to alleviate without the right amount of patience. By modifying their favorite activities, and promoting self-expression, we can help insert joy and fun into their everyday lives. To minimize confusion and fear, Coastal Home Care will work with you to provide care in a comfortable, familiar, and safe environment.
