Meaningful Activities and Feeling Independent
We know it is important for your loved one with Dementia or Alzheimer's to maintain a feeling of independence. We will assist your loved one as long as they are able to leave the home, to run errands, and attend social activities. Whatever a client loves to do, we support that. We will do our best to help maintain hobbies, keep the body moving, and the mind active during the stages of dementia.
Meaningful Activities is a term we use to describe activities such as board games, community outings, and music that 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 a loved one’s abilities start to fade, you can turn to ComForCare for professional help. We can provide as much or as little home care as you need through all stages of your loved one’s dementia. Our caregivers are available for a few hours per week, and up to 24 hour 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 (610) 628-9705 to learn more about the transition care services offered through ComForCare Home Care (Lehigh Valley, PA).
