Wende Roberts, owner of Alzheimer’s Home Therapy. Listed below are some of the services provided by Alzheimer’s Home Therapy.
Placement in a long-term care facility often results from an individual’s inability to live safely in their home. As a person’s dementia progresses, their ability to self-preserve lessens, leaving them unable to protect themselves from harm. Thankfully, most times, making minimal changes to one’s living environment can ensure that one remains at home safely. For example, eliminating sources of overstimulation, like over-illumination, can help prevent troublesome behaviors. While installing alarms on windows and doors will alert the caregiver if the individual wanders. To help our clients live at home risk-free, we offer in-home safety assessments, where we identify sources of immediate and potential hazards. We’ll inspect every room in your home and property and recommend changes.
Caring for a loved one with dementia can significantly affect one’s physical and mental well-being due to the constant stressors that they face. To ease the burden, caregivers must possess the skills necessary to address the obstacles that caring for someone with dementia presents. Not only will these skills protect their health, but they’ll also help them provide the best possible care. Unfortunately, most training, including those that the Alzheimer’s Association offers, teaches only the fundamentals of care. Our two-hour training, Beyond the Basics, addresses the most challenging aspects of care, including communication, motivation, and symptom management. We’ll ensure that your caregiving experience is much less stressful, allowing you to enjoy your time with your loved one.
Thought of the Week – An Optimist sees a problem and sees and opportunity, a pesimest sees an opportunity and sees a problem!
