Millions of families across the US alone are caretaking their elders and loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s or some form of Memory Loss. In most cases, a significant portion of your daily life will have to involve managing your loved one’s condition and ensure that they are following basic routine tasks, like taking medicine, maintaining a proper diet, and safely getting where they need to go. This can be especially stressful and challenging when all this is in conjunction with having to work, go to school, or take care of your other loved ones.
At Coastal Home Care, we assist you to ensure that your elderly loved ones are consistently provided with the best care possible. Our certified nursing assistants are trained and experienced in providing personalized home care to individuals living with chronic symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia. With the understanding that each person’s condition is inherently different, we assess each client’s personal needs, such as their day-to-day tasks, process of communication, and standards for safety and comfort. Our nurses then develop a Plan of Care that will ensure a smooth, continuous level of care.
“Alzheimer’s is the same thing as dementia”
We understand that this confusion between the two occurs, however, there is an important distinction to make between them. Dementia is a general; overall term used to describe a number of medical conditions that affect reasoning, memory, and communication. While Alzheimer’s is one of the most prominent forms of dementia, there are several other variations, such as Lewy Body Dementia and frontotemporal disorders.
At Coastal Home Care, our trained nurses have the ability and knowledge to help you form strategies in coping with these various forms of dementia, providing your affected family member with fervent support for their well-being.
“An assisted living facility would be better”
While an assisted living facility may have its benefits, there are certain drawbacks to consider. One is the fact that such facilities involve one nursing assistant taking care of several senior individuals all at once. This means there is no guarantee that your loved one would receive the appropriate, specialized treatment that they would need for their condition. With a home-care nurse from Coastal Home Care, you can be assured that your elderly family member will be taken care of in every way that they require.
“Hiring a nurse would be more expensive”
Although there are costs in hiring a home care provider, the structure of the service is much more flexible than it is for an assisted living facility. As there fewer additional costs for amenities like meals and cleaning services, our nurses care for your loved ones within your home and due to this fact, it is more cost-efficient.
“Only close family and friends can give proper care”
In seeking to care for your loved ones, it must be true that you care deeply for them, and it is equally true that you would do anything to ensure their safety and comfort. However, with the assistance of a trained, certified nursing assistant from Coastal Home Care, you can rest assured that your loved one will receive a well-prepared Plan of Care to properly respond to any aspect of their condition, whether it be for their Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia.
