We recently worked with an 88-year old woman who is living with dementia. Her spouse called us, because he needed a break and was not able to provide all of the care his wife needed. Out of a fear of falling, his wife was afraid to shower. Not long after we began providing care, this woman did resume safely showering on a regular basis. Our caregiver was able to calmly reassure her. It takes patience and understanding, but the quality of life can be improved for dementia clients.

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.
