Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia create unique care challenges for seniors and their loved ones. At Kind Senior Care, our highly trained caregivers help those impacted by dementia live with a renewed sense of dignity and respect. Taking the time to fully understand a client’s background allows our caregivers to build meaningful relationships that enhance the quality of life of those we serve.
Dementia describes a group of symptoms that affect memory, social skills and cognitive abilities in ways that interfere with a person’s daily activities. Dementia isn’t one specific disease, but it can be caused by several different diseases.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of progressive dementia in older adults. And even though memory loss is typically caused by dementia, memory loss itself can have different causes.
The most common types of dementia include:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Lewy Body Dementia
- Frontotemporal Dementia
- Huntington’s Disease
- Vascular Dementia
- Mixed Dementia
Although it’s highly rewarding, caring for someone with dementia can also be overwhelming at times. As a result, many well-meaning family caregivers run the risk for developing a condition known as “caregiver burnout”. Once burnout sets in it can threaten the health and wellbeing of both the caregiver and care recipient
At Kind Senior Care, many of our clients have some form of dementia. The goal of our experienced professionals is not just getting our clients through the day- it’s about enhancing their quality of life each-and-every day. The unique caregiving formula that we use brings peace-of-mind to our clients, along with their family caregivers and extended families.
Once you’ve placed your trust in Kind Senior Care, our compassionate team will step in and serve as an extended family in the home. This respite period allows you as a family caregiver to focus on self-care while tending to your own needs- all while enjoying the peace-of-mind that caring, highly trained professionals are there keeping your loved one safe and engaged.
Kind’s professional Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers are merely one facet of a collaborative care team approach that also includes the client and their loved ones. As client needs change our flexible care plan also adapts based on input from fellow care team members so that no detail gets overlooked.
Thanks to this collaborative effort our caregivers are-able-to make a great impression starting on day one. Once that nurturing relationship starts to flourish the level of trust between us, our client, and their loved ones also continues to build.
For example, a client living with short-term memory loss might still enjoy sharing stories from their childhood or career. Our caregivers love hearing those stories as they cultivate long-term bonds with dementia clients that allow them to live out their lives with dignity and respect.
