Dementia is a syndrome adults can develop which causes a loss of memory, loss of thought clarity, and loss of mental reasoning. Alzheimer’s is a disease that is the most common within the Dementia syndrome umbrella. Most people who develop dementia and/or Alzheimer’s are reaching an advanced age. However, forms of both dementia and Alzheimer’s can occur much earlier in life.
At Clear Path Home Care, we know that help with daily tasks such as washing, cleaning, medication reminders, meals and transportation are vitally important to ensuring our clients’ daily routines and preferences remain intact. Our team of compassionate caregivers and care relationship managers steps in to assist you or your loved one these perform activities of daily living. However, just as important is the interaction between caregivers – whether they are family members or Clear Path caregivers – and the person with dementia. Our agency provides techniques to help clients with dementia and Alzheimer’s continue to feel safe and secure in their homes.
Our team of care relationship managers will also assist you in communicating with medical professionals to achieve the best results for you or your loved one. Our caregivers electronically submit daily “change in condition” reports to our care teams including psychological and emotional changes. This information assists Clear Path along with our client’s family and loved ones to determine if medical assistance is necessary or adjustments need to be made to the client’s care plan. When dealing with dementia and Alzheimer’s, daily challenges and changes can be frequent. However, our team is ready to help manage and ensure safety and happiness as your loved one ages in their home.
While there is no cure for dementia or Alzheimer’s, there are medications and techniques available that can help mitigate symptoms. Our leadership team continues to develop Dementia and Alzheimer’s training programs for our caregivers. We also provide information for family members and loved ones to gain a better understanding of the effects of dementia and techniques to help provide great care.
