Care for Dementia Patients
As we age, so do our loved ones. And oftentimes, our loved ones develop cognitive diseases, such as Alzheimer’s or dementia. These diseases can lead to your loved one needing special care, especially during the early stages of dementia as they are beginning to change and adjust to a different way of life.
If you are looking for care for your loved ones, A to Z Home Care is Arizona’s premiere in-home care agency, specializing in care for the elderly with dementia. All of our caregivers are Direct Care Worker (DCW), CPR and First Aid certified and also go through a rigorous background check to ensure your loved one is always in safe hands.
With your loved one being in the beginning stages of dementia, you may be looking for in-home care for the elderly with dementia. And oftentimes you might think putting them in a nursing home is the best bet. But, our experts here at A To Z Home Care recommend that your loved one stay in their home with in-home care while the disease is still in its early stages. We suggest keeping your loved ones in the comfort of their home for as long as possible, as they are going to be experiencing a big change in their life and being in a familiar environment can help them feel as if they still have some normalcy.

A good reason to have in-home care for the elderly with dementia, is that as they start to get the early stages of it, they will experience this before and having someone care for them in their home and calm them down and keep them company will help them during this process. They can also go through important dates that happened in the past so that your loved one can practice trying to remember them.
In-home care for the elderly with dementia can help your loved one with making the right choices and decisions. When dementia starts, they may forget or not bother to clean themselves or the house.
