Alzheimer's Care in Victoria, TX
Skilled Alzheimer's care for seniors in the Victoria area.
When a senior has Alzheimer's disease, they are going to need help and support. The extent of support required depends on a number of factors, including the stage of the disease, the speed at which it is progressing, and any other medical or psychological conditions. Not only do these variables impact the care that is required, but it changes the approach to care.
Victoria Alzheimer's Care
Regardless of the stage or progression, there are a few common themes when it comes to Alzheimer's care. For example, the primary focus of the care must be the safety, comfort, dignity, and quality of life of the senior. Comfort Keepers knows and understands this, which is why the foundation of their care support is their trademarked Interactive Caregiving model. Caregivers are specially trained to help those with dementia and Alzheimer's with physical supports, cognitive and mental stimulation, and compassionate care. Knowing what a senior is passionate about makes selecting high-interest activities and having engaging interactions much easier and meaningful.
When seniors seek Alzheimer's care in the early stages of the disease, memory care has an increased potential of delaying the disease's progression, triggering old memories, and increasing an individual's quality of life. The type of memory care each senior needs is quite different for each person. While some seniors may thrive on art, others may respond better to music, and others still to reminiscing with pictures, scrapbooks, or videos. By utilizing a senior's preferences, the proper multi-sensory approach can be utilized. This is why personalized versus generic care is so important.
Granted, Comfort Keepers Alzheimer's care also provides all essential non-medical supports, including light housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, transportation, errand support, and so forth. In addition to these traditional services, caregivers may also provide medication management support, help creating and supporting daily routines, and essential fall-prevention support.
As the disease progresses, Alzheimer's care becomes more detailed and intensive. Safety concerns become as much of a priority as daily living tasks, and personal care support may be required as seniors begin to have trouble bathing, grooming, and dressing.
Comfort Keepers Alzheimer's care will see you and your senior loved one through all of the stages of this horrendous disease. From initial care and support to what may become 24-hour, round-the-clock care. Best of all, this care all takes place in the comfort and convenience of your loved one's home, thus maximizing their independence, freedom, and quality of life.
