Dementia Care

At Homewatch Caregivers of Windsor and metro Hartford, all caregivers are trained to support the unique needs of clients who have been diagnosed with Alzheimers or other dementia disorders. Our dementia care services can adapt to all levels of cognitive impairment, and can be modified as new symptoms present, or adjusted at the request of the client or family members.

We partner with our clients to assess the level of care needed and design a care plan that supports activities of daily living, as well as important safety measures and precautions. Care needs could include: meal prep, companionship, personal care support and other assistance that ensures we provide the very best client centered care within the home setting.

The Homewatch CareGivers approach to dementia care is directed toward the whole person, including social interaction and physical activity. That’s why our caregivers enjoy exploring a client’s personal preferences, which can lead to preparing a favorite meal, taking a walk, playing a board game, listening to favorite music, reading, and a host of other activities.

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.
