Innovative Programs for Individuals with Dementia
ComForCare’s DementiaWise® program not only aims to enhance the lives of individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, but provides support and education for the family. Each one of our caregivers have received dementia care training; therefore, they’re able to take the most effective approach, ensuring their care meets your loved one’s needs and preferences.
Your caregiver will:
- Implement practices for dementia care
- Follow strategies to bring awareness to challenging dementia behavior
- Meet physical and emotional needs
- Engage in meaningful activities
Activities of daily living, such as eating, dressing and bathing, are essential for good health. However, meaningful activities such as board games, community outings and music can bring people joy and purpose. Our caregivers use meaningful activities to provide positive sensory, intellectual, cognitive and social stimulation, enhance relationships, stimulate past memories and more.
When your loved one’s abilities start to fade, you can turn to ComForCare for help. We can help with as much or as little home care as you need through all stages of your loved one’s dementia. Our caregivers are available for as little as a few hours per week up to care around the clock.
Whether your loved one needs assistance only a few hours a week or around-the-clock, our team is happy to help! Call (407) 406-5902 to learn more about the transition care services offered through ComForCare Home Care (Greater Orlando, FL).
