Alzheimer's & Dementia Care

Alzheimer’s Care at Home

If your loved one is suffering from the effects of Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia, you know how difficult it can be to provide care.

While caregivers offer the same assistance as regular home care, “dementia caregivers” are familiar with the stages of the disease and common problematic behaviors.

Care plans are established to focus on the likes, dislikes, and personality of the individual with dementia, and activities are planned accordingly to stimulate one’s memory. This may include looking at photo albums, listening to music, doing art projects, or reading.

Our caregivers:

  • Provide strategies that help you and your loved one communicate better
  •  Provide education for your loved one’s medications, mobility and safety
  • Assess safety in the home
  • Help you and your loved one prepare for and adjust to ongoing changes

Family Education and Support

When a loved one has dementia, it's easy to feel like you’re on your own. Often, it’s hard to know what to expect going forward. That’s why we provide information designed to help families better support their loved one, and deal with the stresses and emotions of caring. We are also there to turn to when you have questions and need additional resources.

Alzheimer’s Care in Columbus, OH

Home Care Needs Through the Different Stages of Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia

Early Stage

In early-stage Alzheimer’s (typically lasts 2-4 years), clients are generally still very independent and require minimal supervision or outside care beyond what a family can offer.

A client might need assistance with medication management, organization, money management, remembering and keeping appointments, and developing coping strategies to maintain independence. During this stage of Alzheimer’s, it’s important to make care plans for the future.

Middle Stage

During middle-stage Alzheimer’s (typically lasts 2-10 years), a client requires more care. During this stage, Alzheimer’s patients may require assistance with activities of daily living, such as dressing and feeding oneself. They may also need reminders, such as what is appropriate clothing for the season. It is important that an individual with dementia follow a structured schedule during this stage, which can aid in diminishing feelings of stress and anxiety, which is commonly associated with dementia.

Late Stage

During late-stage Alzheimer’s (typically lasts 1-3 or more years), an individual will require intensive care 24-hours/day. One will exhibit extreme confusion, with regards to past events and present circumstances. At this stage, it is important to have a trusting relationship with a home care provider. We pride ourselves in caring for clients for many years through each stage.
