Help for Seniors with Memory Loss
Many seniors suffer from memory loss that becomes severe enough that they need help handling many of the activities of daily living. Memory loss can be mild, such as early stages of dementia, or severe, such as advanced Alzheimer’s. In many cases, such as mild dementia, seniors may maintain some independence, but need supervision and assistance with some activities. Sarah Care USA caregivers are available to help with a range of care, services that may change over time to adjust to the senior’s changing needs. Services for memory care patients may fall into several categories:
- Personal care: grooming, dressing, meals, medication reminders and other care as needed, such as bathing and toileting
- Companion care: supervision and activities to stimulate the patient’s cognitive abilities and mood
- Homemaker: light chores and errands, such as laundry and shopping
Care for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Patients
Dementia and Alzheimer’s are two memory loss conditions that occur in seniors and older adults. These conditions are similar in that memory declines over time and may also accompanied by physical deterioration that worsens over time. Memory care patients may need supervision to prevent wandering or behaviors that endanger the patient. Families may find it hard to find the time and energy to devote to parents and loved ones suffering from memory loss conditions. This is where a home caregiver can affordable and convenient provide relief and support.
