November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. At SYNERGY HomeCare we take pride in our commitment to supporting our clients and families dealing with memory-related disorders. Whether you’re in the beginning stages and learning about the disease, or have found yourself learning for years now, you know that information and a strong support system are extremely important.
As a certified Leader in Dementia Care, SYNERGY HomeCare of West Denver wants to be your partner in providing the very best care for your loved one. We have implemented the C.A.R.E. Team Approach – Coordinated and Responsive Engagement. We commit to developing and maintaining a synergistic and quality care plan for each and every client.
Quote from Judy Cantrell, Executive Director of SYNERGY HomeCare of West Denver: "Having personally experienced the progression of Alzheimer's Disease with a loved one, I am passionate about providing the protective oversight and consistent care necessary for our clients with this disease to still have quality of life. We provide 24-hour care for one of our clients who is committed to staying in his own home, but finds disruption of routine and too many new faces challenging. By providing a schedule of regular caregivers who understand his needs and behaviors at different times of the day and developing a well crafted daily schedule of activities, we have seen him take on a renewed energy and confidence that he can have independence in his own home even though we are with him all of the time.”
Part of our dedication to our clients is to be on top of recent discoveries, continued education and training, and utilize new tools to help us maintain our excellence in in-home care. We found these links to the Alzheimer’s Association website to be extremely interesting and engaging. Check them out!
