How Dementia Care Helps
Although each person’s experience with dementia is unique, there are some similarities that can be expected in each stage as the disease progresses. Our dementia caregivers are fully trained and experienced in the unique challenges that may occur in each stage, and in utilizing creative approaches to help individuals and their families better manage them.
Some of the difficulties we can help ease include:
- Repetitive and/or inappropriate behaviors
- Anxiety and Depression
- Safety issues
- And more
We focus on promoting independence, offering support where necessary but never “taking over” tasks for a person with dementia. This approach helps instill a sense of self-confidence, purpose, and meaning.
Additionally, we incorporate ability-appropriate activities that help with cognition, spark memories, and bring the person joy.
