Arvada Dementia Care

Dementia home care is an area of expertise that we are particularly proud of in Arvada. As a leader in dementia care we focus on four areas (physical, environmental, dietary and sleep) to bring about the best quality of life for your loved ones. Upwards of 80% of our clients suffer from dementia or Alzheimer’s. Our Homewatch CareGivers team is committed to serving this population. Our caregivers are required to complete Advanced Alzheimer’s training within their first year. One 92 year old male client became volatile creating at situation at home that wasn’t safe. Alzheimer’s patients often become anxious, and afraid. Many times this leads to unpredictable behaviors, such as wondering or volatility. However, after working with one of our professionals he calmed down and made it possible for the family to keep him at home. Altogether, this family entrusted us with taking care of three family members too.

“Arvada Homewatch CareGivers played a pivotal role in my mother’s care, my husband with dementia and my post-op care. Their competent and caring staff makes you feel safe.” -- Susie F.

When someone is diagnosed with dementia it can be overwhelming and hard to know where to turn. Our caregivers receive specialized training that helps them put together a dementia care plan that is specific to the current abilities and stage of dementia. This dementia care plan can and will be modified as the disease progresses and skills change. Our goal is quality of life for you and your family, and we achieve this with a person-centered approach to care.
Dementia is a progressive disease of the brain that affects a person’s ability not only to remember people and experiences, but also how to do simple daily tasks. There are stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, with each requiring different levels of care and assistance. In the first couple of stages of dementia, a person may still be able to function independently despite some memory loss, but by the third and fourth stages of dementia, they will begin to need help with basic chores and getting around. By the fifth or final stages of this disease, someone with dementia cannot function without help.
At Homewatch CareGivers we provide you and your loved one with quality Alzheimer’s care for any stage of this disease. We recognize that Alzheimer’s effects each person differently and therefore we tailor our care to meet your unique needs. Our caregivers are here to help preserve dignity and independence for those who have Alzheimer’s disease, and respite care for the family too.
Pathways to Memory is the Homewatch CareGivers unique approach to dementia care. Pathways to Memory is a coping solution for everyone involved, creating a circle of trust, communication and support. This specialized form of care features one-on-one interaction and attention and provides social interaction and companionship to the person living with dementia. As with all of our care, our goal is quality of life for those living with memory impairment.
Lewy Body Disease (LBD) is one of the most common causes of dementia, and is also called Lewy Body dementia. The symptoms of Lewy Body Disease are similar to Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, and therefore people with LBD will have care needs as they lose their cognitive abilities and physical functions. The Lewy Body Dementia Association recommends that family of those with LBD research caregiving support before it becomes a need. Our trained caregivers can help to reduce anxiety, assist with daily activities and be there for you and your loved ones after a diagnosis of dementia with Lewy bodies.
