Alzheimer's Care in Bay City, TX
Learn more about the quality Alzheimer's care we provide to seniors facing Alzheimer's disease.
Receiving a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease can be devastating for a senior and their family. The good news is that, today, a diagnosis does not mean a senior will instantly forget who they are, what they are doing, or how to care for themselves. While these components of the disease will likely manifest in the later stages, early diagnosis has given seniors and their families many years of extra time together during the senior's best remaining years. Part of maximizing that time is utilizing professional Alzheimer's services.
Bay City Alzheimer's Care
While no two cases of Alzheimer's disease will progress in the same fashion or at the same pace, there is a standard progression to the disease. There are also a number of things that can be done to moderate the changes a senior goes through as they progress through the disease. Sometimes, this may slow memory loss, prolong the use of a senior's physical capabilities, and even lessen the severity of the emotional and cognitive components of the disease.
Comfort Keepers caregivers specialize in dementia and Alzheimer's care. They not only provide memory care support, but they provide training and education to the senior and their family caregivers so they better understand the disease, its progression, and the care that is and will be required.
For example, in the later stages of the disease, Alzheimer's disease can cause a senior to become highly agitated and distressed by bright colors and wild patterns. Knowing this in advance, Alzheimer's care personnel can help prepare a senior's home by suggesting soft, warm, and calming colors for the rooms. Areas that are "busy" can be toned down well before they ever cause a meltdown. By helping seniors avoid stressful and emotionally disruptive situations, a little prevention can greatly enhance and improve their overall quality of life.
Comfort Keeper's Alzheimer's care also brings technology into play. Seniors deserve their privacy and dignity, but, in the later stages of Alzheimer's disease, they need to be kept safe as well. Incorporating pressure pads near the bed, motion sensors around the house, and discreet alarms on the doors and windows, a senior can be effectively monitored without restricting their movement or imposing on their privacy.
Going yet another step, Comfort Keepers Alzheimer's care personnel can help family caregivers create a safe home living environment along with spaces that are safe and positive outlets for physical exercise and energy.
