Dementia Care

At Homewatch CareGivers of Atlanta East, all of our caregivers providing dementia care to our clients living with the condition are trained on our accredited Homewatch CareGivers university on the specifics of memory care.

We have a one client, with a dementia diagnosis, that we’ve cared for for over 3 years. We know they need a special kind of caregiver, one with a lot of patience and compassion, trained in redirection of behaviors. We strive to provide appropriate activities to help keep her engaged and keep her involved in her care as much as possible. We want to promote her independence throughout all of our daily interactions. Our client is really fond of doing puzzles and our caregivers have learned about the ebb and flow of her energy and attention, and they save their activities for the time when they know she will get the most enjoyment from them.
