Care for dementia in all its varieties, Alzheimer’s, Lewy Bodies, Vascular, can be challenging but there are a few areas you can focus on to ensure the best care is provided.
Many times, family and friends feel responsible for a loved one's care but being responsible for care doesn’t always mean you have to provide all of the care. In fact, most individuals who try to handle the care, while juggling all of life’s many responsibilities, end up giving lower quality care than originally intended. Dementia brings with it a care requirement that demands continual focus and skill to ensure your loved one stays calm and safe.
Making sure the caregiver(s) remain healthy is an important area to focus on. How do you do that?

"In reflecting upon this day and the time we have spent in the care of Synergy I just wanted to let you know that I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism, responsiveness, compassion, caring and commitment to excellence. You and your team touch people in deeply personal ways at their times of greatest need. What you give is indescribable and invaluable. I imagine you can only feel the stress and weight of that work, but I hope that you have perspective on all of the good that you do and find peace knowing that what you are engaged in a profession that is sometimes unsung and underappreciated but is yet among the most crucial, thankless and selfless of services to people. I cannot thank you enough." - Kevin Freeman
