Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and it impacts hundreds of thousands of new individuals each year. It is a neurodegenerative disease that affects the areas of the brain responsible for thought-processing, behavior and memory as well as the neuron’s ability to carry messages to different parts of the brain. Due to the progressive nature of Alzheimer’s, ability to recall information, complete daily tasks, and communicate effectively are functions that deteriorate and worsen over time. Since Alzheimer’s has such a profound influence on physical, emotional and cognitive states, the daily lives of those living with this disease are greatly affected, making independent living increasingly difficult.
Throughout our years of service, we at Aqua Home Care have been referring in-home caregivers to those with a multitude of needs, including those living with Alzheimer’s. In-home care allows clients to live full-time in their own homes with their loved ones. We understand that families may not always be able to be there around the clock, and we find trusted caregivers who can help. With compassion, patience and experience, caregivers are able to assist with:
- Personal grooming and hygiene
- Moving around the house safely
- Keeping daily routines
- Medication reminders
- Meal preparation and assistance
- Monitoring behavioral or mood changes
- Communicating with family
- And more
Being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease can generate feelings of sadness, anger and fear. If you or a loved one has received this diagnosis, please know that Aqua Home Care is here to offer our support during this time. We will complete a needs assessment, develop a tailored care plan and select the right caregiver for you. Your personal caregiver will provide the care you need on your schedule with consistency, reliability and compassion.
