Alzheimer's and Dementia
Caring for someone with dementia poses significant challenges. Without support, it’s also hard to give the people we love all the care they deserve and need. Right at Home understands these challenges. Our staff is specially trained in Alzheimer and Dementia care, and is committed helping you take care of the person behind the disease.
With support, many Alzheimer's patients can be cared for at home and don't require nursing homes or other facilities. In fact, more than half of all diagnosed Alzheimer's patients continue to live in home settings. Right at Home's services offer those who suffer from Alzheimer's:
- Alzheimer-trained Care Workers
- Familiar frame of reference
- Freedom to move about in a familiar, unrestricted space
- Minimal stress, which can aggravate the symptoms of Alzheimer's and dementia
- Daily orientation to time, place and people
- Continuity of daily routines and schedules
- Consistent Care Workers and schedules
- Meaningful, stimulating activities
Alzheimer's Information and Resources
- More than six million people in the U.S. and Canada are living with Alzheimer's or dementia.
- About one in ten people over the age of 65 have Alzheimer's and the disease affects more than 50 percent of people over the age of 85.
- For a great resource on coping with Alzheimer's or dementia in your family, visit the caregiving section of the Alzheimer's Society.
Other agencies cannot compare to Right at Home's service. When I use Right at Home to place a caregiver into someone's home, I know they not only come to do their job, they also build relationships. Their intake process is in-depth in order to help place staff that will fit the patients' needs. I think this is the cornerstone of so many happy patients. They have a genuine interest and passion for the elderly.
