Alzheimer's and Dementia In-Home Care Services
Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, the type diagnosed in 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases. This disease is always difficult to deal with, for those living with it as well as their loved ones. A strong support system is essential.
As the disease progresses, the symptoms begin to make everyday living more challenging for those with the disease and the loved ones striving to help them cope. Families often find themselves singlehandedly trying to provide all the care necessary. This can result in a loss of emotional connection, which is invaluable to maintaining a strong family relationship. At this point, professional help often becomes necessary for proper care.
In the late stages of this disease, individuals require a great deal of care. The brain becomes unable to tell the body what to do for even the most basic functions. When it comes to this point, individuals often need more intensive aid than the average person has the knowledge or capability to offer. At this stage, it's often in the best interest of the diagnosed individual as well as the family to enlist the help of professionals who have experience caring for people with dementia or Alzheimer's. By utilizing Hourly or Stay-In Home Care through Affordable HomeCare families receive the support they need to face dementia head on.

Home Care vs. Assisted Living
The typical environment inside an Assisted Living institution is loud, busy, confusing and full of new faces and can lack mental stimulation. It's because of these factors, dementia patients who move to an institutional setting deteriorate at a much higher rate than those who remain in their own home. In-home care services reduce confusion by limiting the number of new faces. Providing tranquil and familiar surroundings aids in reducing confusion as well. Having a dedicated Care Pro ensures your loved one will receive the mental stimulation that's so important to slow the disease down.Find Home Care Now >
