How Our Caregivers Can Help with Alzheimer's and Dementia Care
We can help care for your loved one at home, giving you the support you need. We believe that everyone should experience connection, purpose and uplifting moments, no matter their age or level of care they need.
By choosing Sandra’s Peace of Mind, families receive support that includes:
- Specially trained caregivers
- Family education to better understand dementia
- Tasks build into the care plan and geared to a senior’s interests to engage then
physically, mentally and emotionally.
- In-home services such as personal care, companionship, medication reminders and family respite care.
- In-home safety technologies including medical alert systems and motion detectors.
We understand alzheimer’s disease, dementia symptoms, how it affects behavior and that it progresses at different rates for different seniors. We create and follow an individualized care plan that focuses on both physical and mental needs and goals.
Our caregivers are screened for empathy, trained to help seniors with alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, and empowered to find ways to elevate the spirits of clients and their families.
With interactive caregiving we get to know our clients on a personal level, learning about likes, dislikes and past events in their life. This helps us to integrate activities that stimulate mental or physical activity. Our clients and caregivers develop a relationship and often listen to music together from the senior’s favorite era, read an old favorite book or even do memory exercises like looking through family photos or discussing current events.
We Can Provide:
- Individualized care plans that focus on physical and non-physical care needs and goals.
- Activities that bring joy, provide mental stimulation and encourage physical and emotional wellbeing. Designed to consider your loved one’s interests and capabilities, these actives are built into the plan of care to improve quality of life and physical health.
- Support for physical prescribed nutrition and exercise programs, companionship, respite care and other needs.
