Memory Care at Home
Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care Stages
In this early stage of dementia, an individual can still function rather independently, and often is still able to drive and maintain a social life. In the very early stage of dementia, symptoms that are seen may be attributed to the normal process of aging. For instance, there might be slight lapses in memory, such as having difficulty finding the word for something or misplacing eyeglasses.
Our caregivers are trained to assist seniors with mild dementia. Having a companion to accompany them with errands, establish a routine, and help with reminders is often the most helpful. Socialization is important at this stage. We make sure our clients make it to their important events and appointments.
Staying active and enjoying life to it’s fullest is important. Our caregivers understand that this time is important for our clients and their families.
In this middle stage of dementia, which in most cases is the longest stage of the disease, brain damage is extensive enough that a person has trouble expressing their thoughts, performing daily tasks, and has more severe memory issues than in the earlier stage. An individual in this stage might not remember their address, might be unable to recall their personal history, and may get confused as to their location.
Our caregivers can provide even more support at this stage. Running errands, medication reminders, transportation to appointments, light meal preparation, laundry and other household tasks become even more needed during the moderate stage.
Establishing a routine is very helpful for our seniors in the moderate stage of dementia. This gives them a sense of safety and security.
In late stage dementia, also known as advanced dementia, individuals have significant issues with communication, often using only words or expressions. At the very end, they may not verbally communicate at all.
As our clients enter this stage, our caregivers provide even more in-home support. Many times, around-the-clock care is needed to help family members who need to sleep, work, and enjoy time with their aging loved-one.
If you have questions or need help with an aging loved-one in any stage of Alzheimer’s or dementia, contact us. We have the right caregivers for each stage.
