Caring for a loved one with dementia poses many challenges for families. People with dementia from conditions such as Alzheimer’s and related diseases have a progressive brain disorder that makes it more and more difficult for them to remember things, think clearly, communicate with others, or take care of themselves. Dementia can also cause mood swings and even change a person’s personality and behavior. Family members find themselves needing more help in caring for their loved one with dementia, but are not willing to take them out of their home (which could actually exacerbate their dementia). We here at Anchor Healthcare understand this struggle, and offer our in-home services to those with a loved one living with dementia. Our dementia services cover a wide variety of in home services:
- Companion services: Help with supervision, recreational activities or visiting.
- Personal care services: Help with bathing, dressing, toileting, eating, exercising or other personal care.
- Homemaker services: Help with housekeeping, shopping or meal preparation.
