Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care
Losing one’s memory and other life skills is probably the most difficult transition that occurs in today’s world. Supporting a loved one experiencing such a circumstance, whether due to Alzheimer’s, Dementia, or another medical condition, is difficult as well. It can be easy to feel overwhelmed and helpless if you try to handle the situation alone.
At Your Service understands this reality, which is why we offer a full menu of professional in-home care services, tailored to your loved one’s unique needs.
How is Alzheimer’s Cared For?
Unfortunately, there is no known cure for Alzheimer’s disease or Dementia. However, providing care for individuals experiencing these conditions is vital to their quality of life. Being in one’s own home can be tremendously comforting to those experiencing memory loss, which is why over 50% of Alzheimer’s patients choose to remain in their homes.
At the same time, almost all in-home Alzheimer’s patients depend on loved ones to take care of life’s daily necessities. Because most cases of Alzheimer’s or Dementia can be managed from home, rather than at a nursing home or other medical residencies, many families shoulder most or all of the caretaking responsibilities. While it is certainly a loving thing to do, tending to a loved one with memory loss can be a tiring and demanding job, which is why seeking professional assistance from Wisconsin Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), such as those on the staff of At Your Service, can be an excellent option.
