What's Included In Alzheimer's Live In Care?

SEVEN ESSENTIAL TYPES OF CARE

Anyone who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s will require additional support in order to navigate their way through each day. The disease will take greater effect as the years keep passing after the original diagnosis was made, where people will eventually incur severe problems with their memory and may even display uncharacteristic changes in their personality.

Our Essential Care Services For Alzheimer Home Care

Installing Familiarity Around the Home People with Alzheimer’s will greatly benefit from an environment that feels familiar and routine. Making sure you have organised any furniture in a manner that generates consistency, but also bolsters easy navigation is always one the most important things to consider. When adapting any spaces, we will make sure that alterations are made through the lens of someone with the condition, since creating a non-restrictive setting is paramount to quality care provisions. Creating Daily Tasks There are loads of everyday tasks that can still be completed by someone with Alzheimer’s, especially when they are given the required guidance and support by our team. This could be assisting with shopping or laying the table for evening meals. Improving well-being can also be encouraged with physical activities like taking dogs for a long walk. We also want people to have something in place they can aim for over a long period of time, which is where things like gardening can be hugely beneficial in creating a sense of purpose. Obtaining Additional Support Services Suitable levels of general support will always help anyone affected with the condition who need to overcome certain obstacles during the day. However, taking a granular approach and identifying additional services that could benefit specific people better to others may also improve the quality of care they are receiving. With this in mind, having companion services that aim to compliment the main support being offered may lead to skilled nursing care and home health aids. If there are daily tasks that people find particularly difficult to complete then the right assistance will be offered accordingly. Using Memory Aids One of the most prominent issues that comes from Alzheimer’s would be the significant reduction in being able to remember things clearly. This can make the process of finding certain items around the home or even understanding how to navigate particular rooms a difficult ordeal. A simple method to eradicate such problems would be labelling items clearly and even placing signs to help prompt people into the right areas. Maintaining a Healthy Diet It’s important for anyone to maintain a suitable diet in order to create a healthy life-style. People with Alzheimer’s will always need support in regards to their consumption of food and drink each day, especially as they could be totally unaware that they are either hungry or thirsty. Being suitably nourished and hydrated is a crucial aspect behind prolonging the effectiveness of the human brain. Keeping Active Daily exercise is another hugely important feature behind our care for people with Alzheimer’s. Since problems around bowel movements can be something that both the affected person and care worker may find difficult to deal with, you will find that physical activity is something that can help reduce the problems that come from this predicament. Using the toilet should always be a permanent competent behind the person’s day, which will help them remain familiar with what is of the more crucial activities that need to be undertaken. Being Respectful Whilst Washing Washing is something considered highly personal, but this unfortunately can be another activity that people with Alzheimer’s may find difficult to complete. If our care workers ever need to assist with any hygiene related tasks, rest assured they will observe the utmost dignity whilst cleansing.
