If a senior you love has dementia, he or she may be unable to perform routine tasks independently. While it is possible to get help outside the home, many seniors with dementia would much prefer receiving senior home care Anchorage families can count on. The following are a few of the primary benefits of providing your loved one with in-home care.
One of the primary symptoms of dementia is extreme confusion. If your loved one has dementia, keeping him or her in a familiar place can help abate some of this confusion. Being comfortable and familiar with his or her surroundings will mean your loved one will feel more relaxed and less disoriented.
As one of the symptoms of dementia is wandering, your relative may inadvertently put his or herself in dangerous situations. If your responsibilities prevent you from providing your loved one the around-the-clock care that he or she requires, hiring an expertly trained 24-hour live-in caregiver in Anchorage to provide safety monitoring will reduce the chances of wandering.
Assistance with Daily Routine
As the symptoms worsen, individuals with dementia have increased difficulty taking care of themselves. If your relative requires help with laundry, cooking, cleaning, bathing, or remembering to take medication, an in-home caregiver can ensure your loved one’s daily needs are met.
