When an elderly loved one has progressive care needs due to a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, allowing him or her to continue to live at home can be challenging. Even when you do your best as a family caregiver, it may be difficult to have the time, energy, and understanding necessary to safely meet all your loved one’s needs while remembering to take care of yourself as well. Finding reliable support is the solution. Home Care Assistance of Des Moines, IA, offers professional in-home Alzheimer’s care to assist seniors through every stage of Alzheimer’s. Our dedicated Alzheimer’s caregivers are industry leaders with the skills to manage even the most challenging situations. We help seniors maintain dignity and their highest level of independence in the comfortable surroundings of home.
Our memory care specialists assist with tasks like:
Maintaining routines is important for seniors with Alzheimer’s, which sometimes poses challenges for family caregivers. When schedules do not match up due to work or personal demands, family members often miss out on sleep and time alone or forgo work demands. Des Moines Home Care Assistance can help. Our Alzheimer’s caregivers can ensure your loved one always has professional support at the times that work best for your family, including early mornings, late evenings, overnight, and weekends or holidays. Part-time and 24-hour scheduling is available, and hours can be easily increased or decreased as your loved one’s care needs change. This flexibility helps family members take care of their own needs while feeling confident in knowing their loved ones are in expert, caring hands.
Maintaining dignity is important throughout the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. In each stage of the disease, seniors lose a little more of their functioning and memory. These changes impact their independence, relationships with others, and various other aspects of life. While there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, slowing the progression of the disease is still beneficial. At Home Care Assistance in Des Moines, we train all of our Alzheimer’s caregivers in our innovative Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM). Incorporated at no additional charge into Alzheimer’s care plans for our clients, CTM includes mentally stimulating, fun, and engaging activities and games designed to help seniors maintain mental acuity and enjoy a higher quality of life.
Finding support is key to helping a senior loved one with Alzheimer’s age in place safely and comfortably.
