We Develop a Supportive Dementia Care Plan
Dementia encompasses a wide range of symptoms and sub-set of illnesses with the most common being Alzheimer’s. Dementia signifies some form of mental decline that is severe enough to interfere with daily functioning. Getting diagnosed with dementia can be a challenging time for those who are going through the disease and their family members. Nurse Next Door focuses on the dignity of all parties involved by helping them continue their daily routines and what makes them happy, despite their cognitive decline.
Our dementia care is offered at home so individuals can remain in a place with familiar settings and surroundings. This lowers the risk of wandering and confusion. Dementia home care services can range from three hours a day to twenty-four care depending on the progression of the illness. When pairing our clients with caregivers, we strive for two things: consistency in care and compatibility. We believe these are the two crucial elements to ensuring care is delivered with the client at the center of the equation.
Nurse Next Door understands that families are affected just as much as clients when it comes to this illness. Our goal is create a dementia care plan that relieves stress and provides support so that peace of mind is achieved. Our trained caregivers are experts at empathetic care and educating loved ones about what to expect with dementia care and the advancement of the illness. We believe in building relationships that go beyond care. Dementia home care isn’t just about the illness – it’s about the person and how we can best support them and their family.
