Living with an aging loved one that is showing signs of dementia can be overwhelming, emotional and often puts a strain on family relationships. However, it is important to know that you are not alone in your journey to provide care for an aging loved one with dementia. Home Care Assistance is the trusted provider of dementia care for seniors throughout Mesa. Our highly trained caregivers know how to create a safe and comfortable atmosphere for your aging loved one while helping to manage the day-to-day changes that come with the progression of the illness.
Dementia isn’t a disease, but a group of symptoms which can affect aging seniors differently on a daily basis. An individual who has been diagnosed with dementia will often express fluctuating behavior, moods and patterns of communication. Being the sole caregiver for someone with occasionally irritable and hard-to-understand dementia symptoms can take an emotional toll. So how does a Mesa caregiver help to understand and manage your aging loved ones symptoms? An in-home caregiver will:
With dementia comes difficulty in performing activities of daily living that once seemed trivial. And as the symptoms progress, the list of things your loved one will need help with will grow longer. This is why Mesa Home Care Assistance offers flexible care schedules, allowing caregivers to be available as needed, with no long-term contracts. An hourly or live-in caregiver can help with daily tasks including eating, bathing, dressing and incontinence. A trusted caregiver also looks after the safety of your loved one while also giving them room to enjoy their independence.
Another symptom of dementia is frequent wandering. If your aging parent or spouse is triggered by something, like the need to get out or the urge to find someone, it can lead to long and seemingly aimless strolls which make it easy to get lost. With the support of a reliable in-home care provider, you can rest assured that you’re aging loved one is safe and in the hands of a caring, professional and trustworthy caregiver.
