The Mind Will Forget but the Heart Will Remember
With aging, come diseases that are often hard to cure. One of the most common illnesses that the elderlies acquire is Dementia. Dementia is a general type of brain disease that causes a decrease in memory or brain function resulting with a person being unable to do daily tasks properly. Alzheimer’s, on the other hand, is a type of Dementia which affects a person’s thinking, memory, and behavior. Both diseases get worse over time especially when the patient is not being attended to appropriately. As a helping hand, relatives of people who have Dementia or Alzheimer's resort to Assisted Living or, in another term, a Home Care.
Most elderlies suffering from Dementia and Alzheimer’s need a constant companion who can look after them and assist them with their daily needs. While some elderlies tend to be wary whenever they hear the words Home Care for Elders or Assisted Living, there are still quite a number of people who are more at ease knowing that someone is dedicatedly looking after them at a Home Care.
For the residents of Connecticut, Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care is more than glad to provide high quality assisted living in Fairfield County and the rest of Connecticut. We, at Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care, take pride in our various types of services for home care in Connecticut. The most common of all the services that we offer is the companionship and homemakers. These elderlies often just need someone whom they can talk to or walk with day in and day out and a constant companion is just the right person for the job. Not only will these companions be there to entertain but, they will also assist you in your other needs such as light housekeeping and meal preparation and medication reminder and personal shopping for homemakers. Most relatives avail of these services so that their loved ones can still be in familiar surroundings and allow them to move freely just like a regular independent person. Another service that we provide is Personal Care Assistance. Since Alzheimer’s and Dementia are both progressive diseases, the needs of the patients also grow and daily tasks become more difficult to manage. This is the reason why relatives consider availing of personal care assistance. Personal care assistants go as far as helping patients in taking a bath, change clothes, go to and from the toilet, transfer to and from the bed or wheelchair and almost every basic necessity that needs to be done on a daily basis. Last, but definitely not the least, we also offer assisted living in Fairfield County, CT, Westchester, and Putnam Counties in New York. In this service, our caregivers are present 24 hours each day to assist the patient. This service is usually best for patients whose disease is already in the last stages or what we often call the most difficult stage of Dementia or Alzheimer’s. Assisted living is for patients who don’t need skilled medical care but need great assistance in daily activities such as taking a bath, changing clothes, and mobilizing throughout the house. Recreational activities, housekeeping, and laundry are also included in this service. Basically, an all-around help is provided in assisted living.
Overall, it is very important to know and understand the problem of your loved ones. It is best to know the stage of Dementia or Alzheimer’s your relative is suffering from. This way, it is easier for you to determine which type of service will suit the needs of your relative. Also, it is important that your relative is comfortable with the decision that you are about to make. They may forget important occasions, or as simple as your name, but surely, they will always remember how you cared for them despite the hard work that their disease requires. We, at Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care, will be more than willing to help you decide what service is best for your loved ones.
