We are all defined by the bonds we make and keep in our lives; it is how we connect to the people around us. This is what life is about. And that is why facing memory loss as a family is so personal.
Memory changes can leave a person and a family feeling lost. Like you, we at SYNERGY HomeCare of East Haven want to help your loved one maintain function.
Our caregivers are here to guide and support.
There are few conditions that have as profound an impact on the families of the patients as memory loss. As the family caregiver, you may feel overwhelmed by the growing need to protect the safety and health of someone you love who is suffering from memory loss. If so, you are not alone as there are millions of people in the United States providing home care to a loved one with memory loss.
To minimize the impact of memory loss conditions on you, the family caregiver, there are a number of steps that you can take to help take care of not only your parent but yourself and other family members as well.
Why SYNERGY HomeCare of East Haven?
Memory can be sustained longer when things remain familiar, like being able to stay in one’s home longer. New, unfamiliar surroundings like a new residence or assistive-facility may be too much to adjust to. Adjusting to a facility schedule that guides when to take medications, when to shower, when to eat, etc. can be the exact opposite of how your loved one wants to do things. At SYNERGY HomeCare, our caregivers will work with you and your loved one to pick the right time in the day to get the day’s activities done. At SYNERGY HomeCare, with the help of our detailed and personalized care plan, our caregivers will know how frequently each non-medical activity will need to be done to maintain good health, enhance their quality of life and bolster their independence.
One on one attention
For many living with memory troubles, staying active and engaged is key. Our caregivers are wonderful at this. We seek and retain social, friendly, compassionate caregivers who can keep a conversation going and memory patients engaged. Having someone to talk with during the day is so important for your loved one to feel engaged. We can help provide the one on one attention that help them be comfortable and adjusted. Many of our clients have us create a calendar of social outings and adventures to take your loved one on. We can do that for yours, too, if appropriate.
If you're looking for care you can trust for your loved one with memory loss, then the last thing you probably want is to place your loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility. Fortunately, non-medical care from SYNERGY HomeCare is a viable alternative that can assist your loved one with daily activities. And the wonderful big difference with home care is that your loved one will have one-on-one care, instead of sharing a caregiver with seven other patients with memory loss. Our caregivers can assist those with memory loss in a compassionate, caring manner, and we perform extensive national background checks on all of them to put your mind at ease.

Talking about the past in this way can trigger strong emotions in the person you care for, so it's important to be sensitive. You may uncover painful memories as well as happy ones.
