When a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, it can be a difficult reality to face alone. It can also be challenging to look after seniors with Alzheimer’s when family members work full time or don’t live nearby. At Lifestar Home Care, we believe that effective home care for seniors with cognitive decline requires a specialized care plan that not only focuses on the “now” but also on a solid understanding of the senior’s background and who they were before the onset of Alzheimer’s. Our experienced care management team works closely with family members to learn as much of the life history of the elderly client as possible and devise a care plan that meets the needs and wishes of the client.
In order to provide the most effective Alzheimer’s home care possible, we carefully select compatible caregivers to work with your loved one. Our Alzheimer’s caregivers are not only matched with clients based on their cognitive needs, but also based on personality. In choosing a compatible caregiver, seniors get the cognitive care they require from someone who understands their needs and limitations on both a mental and emotional level. In addition to offering emotional support and companionship, our Alzheimer’s caregivers engage with seniors on a cognitive level to delay the onset of dementia, encourage socialization, strengthen spatial reasoning and communication skills, and promote self-esteem and confidence.
Taking care of a loved with with Alzheimer’s or Dementia can be overwhelming but you don’t have to do it alone. We are here to help. Our experienced Care Managers are available 24/7 to meet with you, customize an Alzheimer’s care plan for your loved one, and answer your questions.
