Wilkes-Barre Alzheimer's Care
Experienced Alzheimer's care for your Wilkes-Barre senior.
Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia which leads to decreased cognitive function, forgetfulness, mental confusion, memory loss, behavioral impairments, and a variety of other symptoms. Older adults with this condition have a difficult time performing personal care tasks and household chores. They often need assistance from friends and family members that can help them with the duties they are no longer able to complete on their own.
Wilkes-Barre Alzheimer’s Care
If your elderly loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, Alzheimer’s care by Comfort Keepers is the way to go. Our compassionate, patient caregivers have the training and experience necessary to provide your senior with the quality care he or she deserves. When you opt for Alzheimer’s care from us, we’ll take the time to develop an individualized plan of care for your aging loved one. In most cases, the plan of care will include a mixture of personal care and companionship care services such as bathing and grooming, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, meal preparation, assistance with errands, and more.
In addition, Alzheimer’s care at Comfort Keepers incorporates our unique Interactive Caregiving philosophy which is based on the idea that seniors who are physically and mentally active reap the benefits of higher cognitive functioning, better health, and a more positive outlook on life.
Once a caregiver gets to know your senior loved one’s personality, likes, and dislikes, Interactive Caregiving activities such as walks at a local park, knitting, trips to a museum or art gallery, conversations about interests, and reading will be implemented into his or her day to day life. These activities are likely to create a strong sense of purpose and contribution to your senior’s life in order to ward off depression and isolation, which are commonly seen in those with Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s care can be provided for a few hours a week or on a full-time basis. We also offer 24-hour senior care services that may be right for elderly adults in the later stages of the disease. As your senior’s needs change, we can alter his or her care of plan to include more hours of care each week or support with new duties that he or she may no longer complete.
