A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s can be devastating, both for the person with the disease and his or her loved ones. Families’ lives are thrown into a tailspin as they try to understand the disease and plan for their loved one’s long-term health and quality of life. Many families attempt to care for their loved one by themselves, but the nature of Alzheimer’s makes that extremely difficult. Even with the best of intentions, many families find themselves simply unable to meet the physical and emotional challenges that come with providing the specialized care required for a loved one with Alzheimer’s. Without assistance, their loved one’s basic needs may go unmet, and his or her comfort, health, and safety will be at risk.
That’s where we come in. At Home Care Assistance of Amarillo, TX, we understand how crucial it is for seniors with Alzheimer’s to have caregivers with expertise in caring for seniors with the disease. Professional Alzheimer’s home care allows seniors to remain in the security and comfort of home while their families have the peace of mind knowing their loved ones are receiving high-quality care delivered with patience, compassion, and the dignity they deserve.
Our Alzheimer’s caregivers are highly trained and carefully screened for compassion and kindness. Dedicated to providing the highest level of care, they focus on the whole person and strive to meet the physical, emotional, and cognitive needs of each client.
Seniors in the early stages of Alzheimer’s often need hourly care to help with daily tasks such as grocery shopping, light housekeeping, and personal care, including bathing, dressing, and grooming. Our hourly caregivers also prepare nutritious meals and make sure medications are taken on time.
When hourly care is no longer sufficient to ensure your loved one’s health and safety, you can turn to live-in care. With a live-in caregiver, your loved one will receive the care he or she needs in the familiar surroundings of home. Our live-in Alzheimer’s caregivers monitor your loved one around the clock, ensuring his or her safety and minimizing the risk of wandering. Having a caregiver close by also lessens feelings of loneliness, confusion, anxiety, and depression.
At Amarillo Home Care Assistance, our caregivers do more than just provide basic care needs. All our Alzheimer’s caregivers are trained in our exclusive Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM). With CTM, caregivers provide one-on-one mental stimulation by engaging their clients with fun brain games and activities that are scientifically proven to boost brain activity, sharpen mental acuity, and delay cognitive decline among those with Alzheimer’s disease. Our innovative approach promotes cognitive health, giving seniors a sense of accomplishment that relieves frustration, increases feelings of independence, and helps them feel more optimistic and self-assured.
