When a senior parent or loved one has dementia, tasks like cooking, bathing, and light housekeeping are no longer simple chores, but activities that can threaten overall safety and quality of life. To provide families with peace of mind, Home Care Assistance of El Paso County offers customized dementia care plans that are tailored to each senior’s individual needs. Dementia care plans can include any or all of the following care services:
In the early stages of dementia, our experienced in-home caregivers can assist with minor tasks, keep your loved one company, and ensure proper medications are taken as prescribed by his or her doctor. Yet, when care needs evolve and become more complex, you can count on our professional and compassionate dementia caregivers to provide live-in and 24-hour care. Constant and consistent care makes it less likely for your loved one to wander, and allows him or her to form a meaningful bond with our caregivers, helping to alleviate common feelings associated with dementia including anxiety, fear, and restlessness. With assistance from our dementia caregivers, not only can your loved one continue enjoying the comforts of home, they can do so safely and comfortably.
We do not ask you to sign a long-term contract because it is our goal to provide the best care for your loved one, not force you into a plan or service that may not be the right fit. Whether care is needed a few hours a day, overnight, or on the weekends, you have the freedom to select your care schedule and can adjust it whenever necessary. In addition, we require all of our dementia caregivers to take Care Notes, which are shared with the client’s family to keep them in the loop and ensure the most appropriate level of care is being provided at all times.
