After an Alzheimer’s or Dementia disease diagnosis, you believe the best care for
your loved one is at home in familiar surroundings with less disruption in routines
resulting in reduced confusion. Like the majority of devoted family caregivers, you
take on the role of providing Alzheimer's care. As a primary caregiver for someone
with the disease, the effort begins to take a toll on your own physical and emotional
health, family life and career. Families with the best intentions simply "burn out".
Neglecting other responsibilities, lacking confidence in care giving skills,
and resenting demands placed on your time, are a few predominate feelings
As the day-to-day demands increase, you seek respite care, but no one seems to
understand the specialized needs of your loved one. Looking for providers with
dementia care experience is often challenging and frustrating.
Caring Crossroads Home Care recognizes the importance of understanding and supporting those living with Alzheimer's or Dementia disease and other dementia illnesses.
Alzheimer's care is often as important as healthcare, particularly when it enables a person with Alzheimer's disease to remain at home. We work with you to establish safe and more comfortable environments, trusting relationships and techniques to maximize independence for as long as possible for those with Alzheimer's disease. Our specialized approach of encouragement and assistance helps family members cope with the challenges of Alzheimer's disease.
ALZHEIMER'S and DEMENTIA SYMPTOMS
What is your loved one's level of mobility? Does she walk independently or require walker or wheelchair?
