In Home Dementia Care
When you or a loved one begin to face the reality of memory loss, it can be incredibly difficult and challenging. Dementia can become very debilitating, and sufferers are often left very dependent on their loved ones and other caregivers. Craig Cares is dedicated to helping seniors and their loved ones throughout the greater Sacramento area understand their options when it comes to dementia care, especially when a nursing home or memory facility is not an option.
While staying in their home and familiar surroundings can help provide a stronger sense of security for elderly individuals with dementia, it also presents unique challenges for their well-being. Seniors who continue to live in their own home after dementia has set in require regular monitoring to ensure they are receiving the correct nutrition, are remaining active, and are not accidentally neglecting their own health and happiness. Our team offers compassionate, highly trained caregivers who are familiar with the particular struggles dementia patients face. We’re able to provide trusted support for clients and their loved ones for lasting peace of mind.
Compassionate Dementia Home Care
Memory loss can quickly affect all aspects of life, and you need a caregiver who understands your unique difficulties and is able to help in all activities and functions of daily life. Our caregivers have a wealth of training and experience, working with patients suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), and other conditions. We are able to provide compassionate care that overcomes both mental and physical disabilities with services including:
- Transfer assistance
- Nutritional services
- Pet care
- Medication reminders
- Live in care
Alzheimer’s affects cognition and decision-making as well as memory. Because of this, it’s vital to have a trusted caregiver who can help manage daily tasks and ensure long-term concerns are properly addressed with focused care.
Dementia is typically a later symptom of Parkinson’s. Seniors with this condition will require a great deal of physical, mental, and emotional support day in and day out in order to live with the highest quality of life possible.
Because ALS can impact verbal memory and the ability to communicate, it’s essential that you work with a caregiver who has the experience and training to provide hands-on care in a professional, caring relationship.
Behavioral changes often coincide with dementia, creating challenging cases of emotional outbursts, depression, aggression, and other struggles. Our caregivers are trained to handle these cases with compassion and patience.
