One-On-One: The Benefits of In-Home Care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia Patients

March 21st, 2012

Those individuals who remain at home and face challenges of dementia and Alzheimer’s require special attention.  Home Care aides can be an invaluable source of compassionate care.  They will strive to maintain consistency in the daily routines of the clients.  They will provide prompting to alert their clients to the changing times of day.  They will encourage their clients to participate in daily activities such as clearing the table and putting clothing in the washing machine.  Home Care aides will show patience by asking questions one at a time in order to not confuse their clients.  They will make eye contact with their clients, and they will speak slowly and distinctly.  At Central Penn Nursing Care we understand the physical and emotional challenges of caring for someone who is wrestling with Alzheimer’s. Private Duty Home Care can take over the daily tasks that are so wearing for you and your loved one.  If you have any questions about in home care please call and talk to one of our schedulers and set up a free assessment with one of our nursing supervisors.
