According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there are around 5.7 million people living with the disease in the United States alone. This chronic illness impacts an individual’s memory, as well as their ability to complete basic tasks on a day-to-day basis. While Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia can be treated with medications and management, there is no cure. There are, however, care strategies and best practices to allow a person suffering from the disease to continue living safely and productively.
At Coastal Home Care, our caregivers possess a comprehensive understanding on how to tend to those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia with high levels of professionalism, respect, and empathy. We recognize that no two cases of dementia are exactly the same, and that the level and type of support required will vary from person to person. As we devise what routines and coping strategies are best for each individual under our care, major aspects we consider are: day-to-day management, safety, comfort, and communication.
