Caring for a senior loved one with dementia poses various challenges. From remaining emotionally balanced while watching a loved one lose important memories and functioning ability to assisting with sensitive personal care needs and remaining available when he or she needs 24-hour supervision, these challenges are often not easy to meet independently. Having the right level of professional support makes all the difference. At Home Care Assistance of Montgomery, AL, our dementia care services empower seniors to maintain their highest level of independence in the comfort of the familiar surroundings of home. Professional dementia caregivers work under the guidance of an individually developed care plan to meet the exact needs of each senior while respecting personal preferences, normal routines, and daily schedules. Services promote health and safety, are enriching, and make it possible for seniors with dementia to continue aging in place. Here are some of the benefits seniors can avail from our specialized dementia home care, Montgomery families trust.
Some of the most difficult aspects of providing care for a senior with dementia include the behavioral and personality changes that often occur after the diagnosis, which are especially common in the mid to later stages of the disease. Seniors are sometimes prone to wandering, suspicion, agitation, paranoia, sleeplessness, and sundowning. Effectively managing challenging behaviors takes some creativity. Keeping the mind stimulated and enhancing brain functioning helps. The Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM) is our proprietary system designed to engage the main cognitive domains of the brain. CTM incorporates engaging games and activities to promote long-term brain health. All our caregivers are trained in CTM, and it is incorporated into our dementia care plans at no additional charge.
With dementia, changes sometimes occur quickly. A senior might move from early stage dementia to mid or late stage in a matter of months or years. When this happens, families sometimes cannot keep up with changing care needs. At Montgomery Home Care Assistance, our flexible scheduling ensures seniors with dementia are never left without the support they need. In-home dementia care is available hourly or around the clock, and increasing services can be accomplished at any time simply by making a call and speaking with one of our Care Managers. This level of flexibility reassures families as they manage a diagnosis of dementia and helps them continue supporting their loved ones as they age in place.
