Dementia comprises a broad range of brain diseases that progress over time to such an extent that sufferers are no longer able to look after themselves. Largely affecting people over the age of 65, the effects of dementia can cause a great deal of stress and heartache for families. However, every situation is different, and everyone who suffers from dementia shows a broad range of individualized symptoms. Understanding this important fact, SYNERGY HomeCare provides a thoroughly personalized approach tailored to suit the requirements of the patient concerned.
Dealing with Common Symptoms of Dementia
Among the most common symptoms of dementia are constant repetition of questions, stories or activities, aimless pacing around, sudden bouts of anger and aggression and unwarranted suspicion of other people. Unsurprisingly, such behaviors can make unknowing relatives very nervous, but it is important to remember that those living with dementia are not deliberately trying to be difficult. Our compassionate caregivers are highly experienced when it comes communicating in the right way and understanding how their patients are feeling.
Making Patients' Lives More Meaningful
Perhaps the greatest advantage of in-home care is that it allows elderly people and those living with dementia to maintain as high a degree of independence as possible. This allows them to live a more meaningful lifestyle while still maintaining some degree of normalcy in the privacy, familiarity and comfort of their own homes. After exhaustive national and state background checks and extensive training, our compassionate caregivers are trained to assist in all everyday tasks ranging from cooking to personal hygiene to light gardening. Our team strives to engage patients in meaningful activities in order to minimize the effects of dementia.
