According to the Alzheimer’s Association, “15.9 million family and friends provided 18.2 billion hours of unpaid assistance to those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias [in 2016]…and compared with caregivers of people without dementia, twice as many caregivers of those with dementia indicate substantial emotional, financial and physical difficulties”
Our family here at Hummingbird Home Care understands the physical and emotional challenges that come with caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia, which is why we’ve devoted ourselves to developing in-home memory care plans for those we assist, as well as continuing education for our team. Our Care Managers are Alzheimer’s and dementia care trained and certified, and we employ the most up-to-date best practices when it comes to caring for and engaging with individuals who receive in-home dementia care. Some of the ways in which we can assist you and your loved ones in addition to our personal support care plan include:
- Participating in light physical tasks and activities that the individual is known to enjoy
- Maintaining a safe environment
- Creating and participating in mentally stimulating activities, such as puzzles, games, music and trivia
- Assisting with daily activities, including: eating, light housework, transportation, medication reminders and hygiene
