Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care
If you are the family member or friend of someone with Alzheimer’s or Dementia, you are not alone. The needs of a person with Alzheimer’s or Dementia is different depending on whether they require early, middle or late-stage caregiving.
More than just a care giver, a care partner.
Care for people with early-stage Alzheimer’s or Dementia is in many ways more like being a care partner, than a care giver. The goal is to offer love, support and companionship. The degree of assistance needed from a care partner in this stage varies, but often include things like:
- Keeping and getting to appointments
- Remembering place, words or names
- Staying on top of medications
- Emotional support
- Basic money management
- Doing chores around the house
- Staying organized
“Dear HomeLife Partners,
“I want to thank you very much for helping my father and me through a transition period in his life. He certainly enjoyed being able to get out and about with the caregivers you provided. You provide a valuable service for families who cannot devote face time to a loved one. Please give my best to Jasmine & lucy they were great!”
– Carolyn of Palos Verdes Estates
Early-stage Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care
The key to early-stage Alzheimer’s care-giving is to try to encourage the person’s strengths and help them continue living as independently as possible. Caregivers can help with scheduling and calendars, keeping notes, tracking medication schedules and generally helping the patient stay organized. A regular daily routine often helps.
Middle-stage Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care
In the middle stages the caregiver will have to take on greater responsibility. Daily routine and structure become more important, as does the importance of providing excellent emotional support.
Middle-stage Alzheimer’s and Dementia care can be considerably more demanding that early-stage care.
Late-stage Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care
The needs of the person living with late-stage Alzheimer’s often include:
- Help with eating and swallowing
- Assistance with walking
- Full-time help with personal hygiene
- Infection prevention
- Help communicating
