Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia is a new journey for many family caregivers. Personalities may change and signs of challenging behaviour may appear. Some people may have difficulty communicating or completing tasks. Most likely, however, those living with dementia will begin to lose their memory.
DementiaWise® - Where Experience and Compassion Improve Dementia Care
When your loved one’s abilities start to fade, you can turn to ComForCare. Through our DementiaWise program we deliver custom, in-home care services designed to make your loved one’s days better, while preventing or reducing any challenging dementia-related behaviours. This means better days for you too!
With the help of our specially-trained personal support workers, our non-medical home care services allow individuals with any type or stage of dementia do more of what they enjoy in the familiarity and comfort of their own home. The dementia care services we provide are designed to help enhance the quality of life by helping clients remain independent for as long as possible.
As part of DementiaWise, we work with each family to:
- Implement best practices for dementia care
- Customize care based on your loved one’s needs and preferences
- Create daily routines
- Meet physical and emotional needs
- Follow strategies to decrease challenging behaviour associated with dementia
- Engage in Meaningful Activities
When a person has the ability to live in their own home, they experience comfort and convenience. This can lead to better moods and more positive emotional experiences.
