Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care

Our compassionate Personal Support Workers provide expert dementia care right at home

Seniors across the board prefer staying at home as they age instead of moving to a nursing home or assisted living facility. The situation is no different when it comes to people that have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or have another form of dementia. In fact, staying in their own home helps reduce confusion and anxiety for many seniors with this diagnosis. Unfortunately, many people with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia are not able to stay at home on their own and care for themselves safely and properly, which is why non-medical dementia care was invented.

At Comfort Keepers, our specially trained Personal Support Workers will be there to support your loved one and your family, to help you through this difficult time. At the core of our operation and non-medical dementia care program are Personal Support Workers. All of our Personal Support Workers go through a rigorous training program, but we only select and employ the most compassionate and understanding. We understand how difficult Alzheimer’s and dementia diagnoses are for everyone involved and we will be there to make sure you and your loved one are getting everything you need.

One of the most important things is to make sure your loved one is staying physically and mentally engaged and involved. This has a major impact on reducing challenging behavior and helping them remain safe and calm.

Our memory care is part of our overall unique brand of Interactive Caregiving. Interactive Caregiving is based on four major pillars – physical activity, mental engagement, nutrition and home safety. Translated into proper memory care, Interactive Caregiving means working with your loved one to find ways for them to stay involved in their own care as much as possible considering their current physical and mental state. The fact is that Alzheimer’s and dementia in general progress at different rates for different people and by working with your loved one to help keep them engaged, we can help postpone the progression of the disease, making sure they stay independent for longer.

As you can imagine, dementia care could do a world of good for your loved one. Helping keep them at home will reduce confusion and our Personal Support Workers will work tirelessly to keep them engaged and active.
