Dementia Care

Caring for a loved one who suffers from Dementia can be a daunting and frustrating task. Finding the correct care at the correct old age home for your loved one can be challenging too. But what is dementia? Dementia is a term that is given for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life. Memory loss is an example with Alzheimer’s being the most common type of dementia.

When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia, their family, friends, and familiar surroundings are crucial to their well-being. Over time, your loved one will likely rely on family caregivers and the comfort of their home more and more. Yet it can become overwhelming trying to care for your loved one, and eventually, they may need to be moved into a nursing facility or old age home where proper care for patients with Dementia is offered. Dementia care also give you and your loved one the support that you both need. Our caregivers offer compassionate and specialized assistance designed specifically for those with dementia. This way, your loved one can continue to live a dignified life whilst receiving care designed to maximize quality of life.
