Trusted Alzheimer’s Care for Seniors in Annapolis
When forgetting about daily tasks progresses into forgetting the names of spouses, children and loved ones, the reality of Alzheimer’s sets in. Because of the degenerative nature of the disease, it becomes more difficult for families, both physically and emotionally, to provide care to their aging loved ones. Fortunately, you don’t have to do this alone. Home Care Assistance has grown to meet the needs of thousands of seniors and families throughout the United States, building relationships with trusted medical professionals, hospitals and research organizations along the way. It is through these connections that we are able to provide our clients with the highest level of quality Alzheimer’s care, all from the comfort of home.
Importance of Familiarity & Consistency
Alzheimer’s affects a senior’s ability to remember and think clearly, making familiarity and consistency of the utmost importance. Home care enables seniors with Alzheimer’s to remain in a familiar home environment, surrounded by their personal possessions, family and pets. Unlike institutionalized care, the same caregiver provides one-on-one assistance on a personalized level, forming a meaningful long-term relationship with the senior to help combat feelings of confusion, anxiety and loneliness. When a senior is able to trust their caregiver and the people around them, other common symptoms of the disease such as paranoia, agitation and aggression are minimized and better managed, promoting a higher quality of life.
