The rising prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias is overcome by shocking statistics. Just as in the rest of the country, families in southwest Ohio frequently have to take on the responsibility of providing 24-hour care for loved ones with dementia. Providing Alzheimer’s patients with protective care can be difficult, especially for those who have lived independently for a long period but are now becoming increasingly dependent. Caregiving for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia can cause significant disruption in family members’ daily routines. As the condition progresses, these responsibilities may persist for years.
Early-stage Alzheimer’s patients typically do best when cared for in their own homes, where they can maintain a relatively normal schedule with the aid of prompt cards. In most cases, family members are able to manage the first stages of Alzheimer’s care. There will come a moment, though, when closer monitoring is recommended. Hiring a companion care helper is a great way to ensure the person’s safety and well-being while allowing them to remain in their own home while undergoing dementia care in the Dayton area.
Our dementia professionals at Golden Heart Senior Care in the Mason, Dayton, Kettering, and Beavercreek areas are trained to provide care for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia using established “best practice” protocols. Among these are ways to talk to and help people who have dementia. Our clients can rest easy knowing that they will receive the highest standard of dementia care while also enjoying the comforts of home. With less pressure and worry, families can reconnect in a new, albeit altered, way that is nonetheless vastly superior to their previous role as primary caregivers.
We’d like to extend an invitation to anyone reading this who is currently a caregiver to sign up for our “Caregiver Support Forum.” Here you will receive practical advice and direction for carrying out your ordinary duties as a dementia caregiver. If you need additional assistance or recommendations, our Partners page is a great place to start.
We’re prepared to give your family member the best treatment possible. For more information, please contact our Mason or Dayton, Ohio offices now at (937) 528-1962.
