It’s important for seniors living with dementia or Alzheimer’s to feel at home in a familiar environment. That’s why home care solutions are the preferred method of long-term care compared to moving your loved one into a senior living home.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s and you’re unsure whether in-home personal care services are the ideal choice, here are some key benefits you can expect from Arizona home care.
Greater Sense of Security
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 6 million people are living with Alzheimer’s in the United States. For seniors living with memory issues, home care solutions can provide an additional sense of security because they’re receiving care in an environment that’s already familiar to them. This can reduce anxiety and disorientation.
Easier to Increase Care
While the side effects of dementia and Alzheimer’s can worsen over time, those living with these conditions don’t necessarily need advanced care all at once. You or your loved one can gradually increase your level of care with in-home care services. You can begin with companion care and, as your lifestyle changes, consider adding light housekeeping services, meal planning and preparation services, medication reminders, and more to your home care solutions.
Improved and Professional Assistance
In the earlier stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s, one or more family members may provide in-home care for you or your loved one. However, it may be challenging for family members to continue providing that care as dementia or Alzheimer’s progresses because they may not have the right training to provide in-depth care.
In-home caregivers are trained in basic and in-depth dementia/Alzheimer’s care, so they have professional experience helping those like you or your loved one during episodes of confusion or disorientation. You can rely on in-home caregivers to provide an elevated level of care with the compassion and patience you need.
