Alzheimer's Care In La Jolla, CA
Specialized Alzheimer's care for your La Jolla, CA loved one.
It can be incredibly difficult to care for an aging adult with Alzheimer’s disease. Seniors who have been diagnosed with this condition are faced with symptoms such as memory loss, disorientation, irritability, mood swings, and mental confusion that make it challenging to live a safe and fulfilling lifestyle. If your elderly loved has Alzheimer’s disease, you should consider Alzheimer’s care at Comfort Keepers.
Alzheimer's Care in La Jolla, CA
Our caregivers or Comfort Keepers have the knowledge and experience necessary to care for senior citizens with Alzheimer’s disease and similar conditions. They have been carefully selected, screened, and trained to ensure our elderly clients receive the highest quality care. In addition, Comfort Keepers are bonded, insured, and covered by worker’s compensation to give you and your family peace of mind.
Once you decide that Alzheimer’s care is a good choice for your senior loved one, a client coordinator will meet with you and your elder to gain an understanding of how Alzheimer’s affects his or her current lifestyle. Then, an individualized care plan will be designed to fulfill your elder’s specific needs. While seniors in the early stages of Alzheimer’s may only opt for part-time care, those in a later stage of this progressive disease may require full-time or 24-hour care.
A typical Alzheimer’s care plan will consist of in-home care services which are intended to assist older adults with household chores and personal care tasks. A Comfort Keeper may support your senior with personal hygiene, toileting, transferring and positioning, and mobility. Additionally, a Comfort Keeper can perform some light housekeeping to reduce your elder’s risk of falls and trips, transport him or her to doctor’s appointments or errands, and ensure that he or she is consuming nutritious, well-balanced meals.
Interactive Caregiving plays a vital role in Alzheimer’s care as well. Interactive Caregiving is unique to Comfort Keepers and was created to help seniors stimulate their mind, keep them socially engaged and physically active, and enhance their overall wellbeing. It involves a plan that includes activities such as dance classes, events at a local community center, card games, knitting, holiday celebrations, concerts, and cooking. These types of activities have been proven to increase a senior’s independence and ensure that he or she is living an active life despite being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
