When a loved one is suffering from Alzheimer’s, it can be a difficult time for everyone involved. If you are the primary caregiver, you’re likely in for a stressful and emotional journey that feels like a never-ending stream of setbacks and frustrations.


When a loved one is suffering from Alzheimer’s, it can be a difficult time for everyone involved. If you are the primary caregiver, you’re likely in for a stressful and emotional journey that feels like a never-ending stream of setbacks and frustrations.

 

There isn’t much in the way of medical treatments for Alzheimer’s, and there is no cure, so the care that they receive can make a huge difference in the quality of their lives. Many people have successfully provided care for loved ones on their own, but all the daily demands can start to weigh so heavily on them that they eventually burn out and stop providing for their own health. This leads to even higher levels of stress or depression.

There are times when others can step in and make a huge difference for both the patient and the regular caregiver, because Alzheimer’s care and support has to include everyone.

 

Who Can Help?

Other family members are often the first choice for help providing care for a loved one, but, even then, there comes a time when a home care agency will be able to step in provide a completely different level of care.

When the frustration mounts, that doesn’t mean you immediately have to look for options outside of the home. Our goal here is to make sure you and your loved ones are able to stay and be cared for in the comfort of their own home, because everyone should have the dignity of staying in a familiar place, even during this extremely vulnerable time of their lives.

 

AccuCare Services

Everyone has a different set of circumstances, and we’ve carefully selected and screened our staff to make sure they can provide all the services required in almost any situation. Of course, this does mean that home health care services costs can also be different, so be sure contact us to learn more about the specifics.

Whether you’re looking for ongoing support services for a family member or just a break when you’re the one providing the care on a regular basis, there are several options available that can make this entire process easier for everyone involved.

 

How We Work

If you’ve decided it’s time to take advantage of our services, one of our nurses will visit you for an in-home assessment and determine what we can do for you. This is how we start to create an individualized plan for your situation, which will include any directions from your personal physician.

This is just the start, though. We’re not going to simply send someone to your home because they have a certain skill set. We want to make sure that this person will fit with your lifestyle, routine, and personality. They’re going to be spending a lot of time in your home, and that means this person needs to be someone you’d want to welcome into your home.

 

What Can We Do?

There are a wide range of services available for people dealing with Alzheimer’s at home. Most of our services could fall into a few different categories, including:

Personal Care Services:

  • Medication and appointment reminders
  • Meal prep and help eating
  • Getting up and being active
  • Bathing and grooming
  • Toileting
  • Oral care

Maybe they’re not to this stage yet, and they just need to have someone nearby. This is often called companion services and includes:

  • Conversations, interactions
  • Play games, going for walks

We can also help around the home with:

  • Getting organized
  • Delivering orders
  • Housekeeping, shopping

Or maybe some transportation services will help with:

  • Groceries, doctors, therapists, hair, dinner, etc.

We can even help take care of the pets.
