Caring for a loved one living with dementia may present challenges to families already trying to balance work and time constraints. In addition, for those who are not properly prepared, learning to communicate with a loved one living with dementia may not be easy. Patience, compassion and perseverance are essential traits to have.
As the symptoms of dementia progress, it can become increasingly difficult for your loved one to continue being independent requiring at some point full-time care. Relocation to a care home may be too expensive for a family, and often doesn't offer the best solution for your loved one either. After all, most seniors, including those experiencing the onset of dementia, are more content remaining in the familiar surroundings of the home they've lived in for years.
Fortunately, flexible in-home care options are widely available. SYNERGY HomeCare can help create a custom care plan to suit the specific needs of you and your loved one. Additionally, your care plan can be adapted as they require more care. If you're looking for quality dementia care in Hiram, GA, you'll want to carefully consider your loved one's needs while prioritizing their safety and wellbeing.
Memory care and companionship are among the most important factors when it comes to caring for people living with dementia. A professional caregiver will be well-equipped to work with dementia clients to the extent that they know how to communicate with them and help them to live as full a life as possible. As the symptoms intensify over time, your loved one may need additional assistance with things like personal hygiene routines, meal preparation and more.
During the early stages of dementia, an hourly care program might be suitable but, when your loved one reaches the stage where they need constant help, you'll need to consider a higher level of care. Provided that your elderly relative does not need constant medical supervision, it is usually possible for them to remain at home rather than relocate to a nursing home or other facility. Round-the-clock, shift-based care presents an ideal solution in situations where your loved one requires ongoing supervision. Another alternative is live-in care.
SYNERGY HomeCare provides the complete range of homecare services by way of individualized care plans. Our team of compassionate professionals also have extensive experience working with those living with the various forms of dementia.
