Dementia Care

The dementia care team of Homewatch CareGivers of Westmont/Haddon Township is very aware of and engaged with the special care needed for the Alzheimer's/dementia clients we serve.  We are always learning, educating ourselves on how to work successfully with our clients who suffer with cognitive issues.  We know that a large portion of our clients have cognitive issues and need specific dementia care.  We strive to learn about each individual client and how we can connect with them in order to ensure a successful dementia care experience.  After all of the information is gathered from meeting with a client and their family, our RN’s create an individualized care plan and we make sure that the caregiver is enlightened and instructed on how to best work with their client.  We understand that the primary caregivers need to have someone reliable to call upon when they need a break from providing continual care.  We are here to help!

We understand the loneliness, hopelessness and boredom that some of our clients might feel.  We will bring a positive approach with our care and will work to boost your loved one’s self-esteem and restore their sense of purpose.  Our specialized and personalized dementia care will help us to achieve these goals.  

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.
Homewatch CareGivers has a 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.
