The new dementia care program features an in-depth consultation with the patient and their family before any service is recommended. This allows the patient to become comfortable with their caregivers and develop a sense of trust. This is especially important for patients who become aggravated when introduced to new faces.
Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, with an estimated six million seniors in America currently living with the disease. The disease manifests itself as progressive memory loss that prevents older people from living a happy and productive life. At its worst, Alzheimer’s may cause severe cognitive loss such as not remembering how to get back home.
These are challenges that families of Alzheimer’s patients face. Visiting Angels Staunton understand these risks and created a program that combines the latest fact-based caregiver services with compassionate care. Its in-home caregiver services are tailored to suit the specific needs of the patient, whether that is meal preparation or emotional support.
The strengthened care program includes stricter protocols that comply with the current health guidelines, such as the frequent sanitation of items handled by both the caregivers and patients. To help families with their financial situation as well, the initial consultation with Visiting Angels Staunton is free.
This allows the patient and their families to determine the services they require. Visiting Angels Staunton helps seniors with their daily tasks, including medication reminders, errand running, patient bathing, grooming, and dressing, and light housekeeping. The goal of its dementia care program is to empower seniors to live as productive a life as possible and provide respite to family caregivers.
