Alzheimer’s & Dementia Memory Care
Help at Home offers memory care services because we know dementia is not normal aging. It is a progressive disease that requires constant care and monitoring. It is always a challenging journey for the person and their loved ones. We understand how personal care needs increase as dementia progresses and cognitive ability declines.
Help at Home is sensitive to the special needs and well-being of those living with dementia. We can provide the care needed at each stage of the disease process. Our carefully chosen staff has ongoing special care training and uses an approach to make the patient feel safe and secure.
Losing the ability to perform activities of daily living and the loss of independence and privacy can be difficult. Our memory care approach successfully provides the ability to meet the client’s needs while giving important support and understanding of the caregiver. We can help with a much-needed caregiver respite or massage from one of our licensed massage therapists.
We’re not just caregivers, we join the client’s journey with a fostered relationship plus support, education, and communication with loved ones and caregivers. Our help is available in a familiar home setting or a memory care facility. Wherever the client’s home, all of our services are offered with compassion and understanding.
