Dementia Care Services Provided
We provide dementia care for persons in Fairfax, Falls Church, Herndon, McLean and the surrounding areas. Each care plan begins with an in-home assessment of a client's condition, and his or her living environment. We put together a personalized dementia care plan based on the results of the initial assessment. We want to ensure that our clients receive the help they need while being able to maintain as much independence as possible.
Our caregivers provide the following dementia care services:
- Assistance with daily hygiene, grooming, and bathing
- Meal planning and preparation
- Transportation and help running errands
- Games, activities, and discussions for cognitive stimulation
- Oversight of safety and well-being around the home
- Assistance with light housekeeping and maintenance chores
For seniors with dementia, the disease can begin to impair daily routines, making tasks that were once simple become increasingly difficult. Those with advanced dementia will eventually require daily assistance.
Our caregivers are professionally trained and certified
The DementiaWise® program prepares our caregivers in best practices and known techniques for managing behaviors that are common among persons with dementia. We learn how to diffuse emotions and redirect certain behaviors that can escalate or become difficult. We are also taught what to watch for and how to manage the signs.
We have had great success with these techniques and we are happy to share them with our clients' families. This can lessen some struggles within family dynamics and make life easier. Our goal is to enable you to enjoy quality time together as a family.
Whether your loved one needs assistance only a few hours a week or around-the-clock, our team is happy to help! Call (703) 870-3711 to learn more about the transition care services offered through ComForCare Home Care (Northern Fairfax, VA).
