Dementia Care services offer specialised in-home support to those with early-stage, mid-stage, or late-stage dementia. Our caregivers help our clients maintain quality of life so that ageing in place remains possible. We also provide family caregivers with much-needed respite.
When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia, their well-being will depend on family, friends, and familiar surroundings. Over time, your loved one will likely rely on family caregivers and the comfort of their home more and more. You may find yourself overwhelmed trying to care for your loved one. Eventually, you may start to worry that you will need to move your loved one into a nursing facility.
Dementia care services from Elmar Home Care can provide you and your loved one with the support you need. Our caregivers offer compassionate, specialised assistance designed specifically for those who are coping with dementia. This way, your loved one can continue to live at home, receiving care designed to maximise quality of life. At the same time, you will get the respite you need to maintain your own well-being and find time for other important responsibilities.
Dementia Care Services
At Elmar Home Care, we understand the challenges of caring for those with dementia. Unlike other types of senior care, dementia care services must be tailored to the specific symptoms, risks, and challenges related to the different types of dementia.
Elmar Home Care has partnered with leading dementia specialists to develop a series of dementia care certification programs. Basic dementia care training is available to all our caregivers, and many caregivers are certified in advanced dementia care protocols.
Through our dementia care program, we provide assistance with a wide variety of needs. We assist our clients with personal tasks, provide comforting companionship, and offer helpful reminders when needed. Our dementia care services can include help with activities that include:
- Wandering prevention
- Walking assistance
- Transferring assistance
- Dignified bathing, dressing and grooming care
- Medication reminders and monitoring
- Preparation of healthy meals
- Light housekeeping chores
- Transportation to appointments and therapies
