When a senior loved one develops Alzheimer’s and expresses a desire to age in place, there are many decisions to make. Your family may be wondering if it is possible to keep your loved one safe and who will assist him or her with day-to-day tasks. Even more importantly, you want to ensure adequate supervision is available for your loved one as his or her care needs change. Home Care Assistance of Winnipeg, MB, understands the uncertainty many families face regarding these concerns. We help make the choices clear by providing safe, professional in-home Alzheimer’s care that is always available when you need it most. With our help, seniors with Alzheimer’s disease can safely age in place and meet their goals, and their families gain valuable peace of mind.
In the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s, seniors commonly experience only slight changes in cognition. Many families feel comfortable managing all of their loved one’s care needs during this time, but in-home care is still valuable even during these early stages. As the disease progresses, needs often change, and accessing professional assistance is even more important. Winnipeg Home Care Assistance provides flexible scheduling to meet the exact needs of seniors and their families throughout every stage of Alzheimer’s. From respite care to around-the-clock support, we are available when your loved one needs us most. This flexibility makes it easier for family members to rest, continue working, and take care of personal needs without worrying about the wellbeing of their senior loved ones whenever they are away.
Our memory care professionals can assist seniors with a variety of activities, including:
Longevity is an essential part of any Alzheimer’s care plan. Even after an Alzheimer’s diagnosis, seniors can continue to maintain meaningful relationships, participate in fun activities, and feel respected and valued. Home Care Assistance Winnipeg fosters bonding between seniors and their caregivers to enhance quality of life. This is accomplished using a personalized matching system that considers personality traits, likes and dislikes, and the needs of our clients. This system allows our clients to feel respected and accepting of care so life is worth living and home is a more comfortable place to be.
While there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, quality of life can be enhanced when the progression of the disease is slowed. At Home Care Assistance in Winnipeg, our Alzheimer’s caregivers are trained in the innovative Cognitive Therapeutics Method, a professionally designed program created to target memory, speech, attention, and cognition. Caregivers bring their skills into the homes of our memory care clients, using fun games and activities to motivate seniors and enhance the home care experience.
