How Can Delivering Dementia Caring at Home Help My Senior with Alzheimer's Disease
Providing professional home care services for a person with Dementia has many advantages over a nursing home or another type of care facility. While your loved one may experience severe personality changes that will eventually require more advanced caregiving services as their Dementia progresses, we find that seniors benefit from home care services if their situation allows. Home care focused specifically on Dementia care allows your loved one to remain close to where they are comfortable and surrounded by the people they love and recognize. This helps with the anxiety that people with Dementia often develop in unfamiliar places without a family member nearby. We understand that family caregivers are often unable to provide the in-home care their loved one needs due to work or distance. Our dementia care services have been designed to work with your schedule and to minimize discomfort to your loved one. When pairing our caregivers with our Dementia care seniors, we attempt to place a caregiver that will be able to dedicate care to one client. This helps to strengthen the bond between dementia caregivers and people with dementia, resulting in more successful home care placements.
In-Home Dementia Care Plans Provide Much Needed, Personalized Companion Services
The stages of Alzheimer's disease and the symptoms of Dementia, and the challenges that come along with it, are as unique as the individuals it affects. Someone with Dementia may react to stimuli or social settings in a completely different way than another, and a Dementia care plan needs to consider that. The caregivers at ComForCare (Northern Utah) take a personalized approach to Dementia care by tailoring an individualized home care program for your loved one. Our home care plans are structured to classify focus areas, set goals, and build activities and mental exercise regimens that improve patients' quality of life. We partner with clients, their families, and their medical specialists to make the best decisions regarding ongoing care.
Our Caregivers Provide the Home Care Your Loved One Deserves
We begin our dementia care services by conducting an initial in-home assessment to start planing a care regimen. It includes working one-on-one with our clients to understand their specific needs, likes, and other aspects unique to your loved one. During this process, we are assessing, among other things:
- Patient's ability for thought processing
- Level of disorientation
- Ability to cope with stresses
- Personal care needs
- Social and spiritual needs
- Daily routines (meals, bathing, grooming)
After our evaluation, we will work with you and your loved one's healthcare experts to create a detailed personalized care strategy. Our plans are versatile and, through information gathered from closely monitoring your loved one's progress over time, can be updated to serve their needs properly as changes happen. Our patient care goes well beyond personal care and Dementia care. The companion services that our caregivers provide help your loved one cope with feelings of loneliness and depression. Dementia can often exacerbate these feelings and through our home care services, our caregivers make real and lasting connections with the people they help.
Helping Family Caregivers as They Support a Person with Dementia
We are also here for you; to support you as you face the challenges associated with caring for a loved one enduring the effects of Dementia. Our caregivers are sources of information for families and can help you understand senior care and how Dementia complicates the situation. We can connect you with resources that will help you learn more about the early stages of Dementia, managing memory loss, the roles family members can play in senior care, and how family caregivers can take care of their own mental health. Our goal in giving you this support system and providing home care, in general, is to keep your loved one with Dementia, as comfortable as possible, in their own home for as long as possible.

Every day our caregivers are helping families understand, manage, and improve the quality of their loved ones' lives. We believe that matching expertly trained caregivers with personalized and compassionate dementia care services can help bring real change to our friends and neighbors in Cache Valley, Box Elder, and Weber, UT.
