Alzheimers Care from Assisting Hands Home Care Potomac.
It is distressing to start to notice the warning signs of Alzheimers Disease in a loved one. And it is hard to know where to turn at such a time. Assisting Hands Home Care Potomac can help.
Each person with Alzheimers or dementia has a unique set of care needs. These needs change over time as the disease progresses. But individuals can still experience joy, comfort, and meaning in life. The quality of life depends on the quality of the relationships dementia patients have with their loved ones, their community, and their home care providers.
Dementia has a significant impact on family caregivers. The overwhelming majority of people with dementia live at home with family caregivers who are responsible for their care, safety, and comfort. It is sometimes difficult for the family alone to provide adequate care and to maintain careful supervision to prevent unsafe activities. Providing constant complicated care to a person with dementia takes a toll on family caregivers leaving them overwhelmed, exhausted, and stressed.
Assisting Hands of Potomac can assist in helping maintain the dignity and freedom of an individual with dementia while providing a much needed break for family caregivers. Our staff is specially trained to address the unique needs of Alzheimers and dementia patients and have received specialized training on communication strategies and in creating an environment with adequate amounts of stimulation, without overwhelming or confusing a dementia patient.
