Alzheimer's Care

If you are caring for a family member or friend with Alzheimer's disease, you are not alone. Today, almost 11 million Americans provide care for someone with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. Because this disease progresses slowly, caregivers can spend many years in this role.

 

Caring for a person with Alzheimer's or another dementia poses special challenges and requires increasing levels of
supervision and personal care. Needless to say, this situation can be extremely hard for family members trying to care for their loved ones.

The services Family Partners offers for Alzheimer's care are designed as much for the benefit of the primary caregivers as for the person with Alzheimer's. We work closely with families to design a flexible plan of care to meet needs as they change, and we carefully select caregivers who are especially suited to working with Alzheimer's clients.

In addition to our general services, we can help with tasks that are typically part of Alzheimer's care, including:

  • Helping the person take medications correctly and follow treatment recommendations for his or her dementia and other medical conditions
  • Supervising the person to avoid unsafe activities, such as wandering and getting lost
  • Engaging the person in mind stimulating games
  • Helping to prepare the home for safety
  • Providing companionship
  • Bathing, dressing, feeding and helping the person use the toilet or managing incontinence
