There are different considerations for families to consider after a loved one has a diagnosis of Alzheimer's. For many, the best option to consider is Alzheimer's home care, which allows the individual to continue to live in a familiar environment while still receiving the care and support required.
At European Best Care, we provide a customized and personalized approach to Alzheimer's home care. This includes assisting the families in understanding the different stages of the disease and in providing the specific support required.
There are several advantages to choosing Alzheimer's home care. With the trained, experienced, and compassionate support from our caregivers, the family can have the support they need to feel confident and comfortable in their decision to keep their parent or family member at home.
As the disease progresses, staying in a familiar, comfortable environment is a benefit to the individual. Changes can become very stressful, with increased difficulty in anxiety and frustration when the environment changes. Familiar items, objects, rooms, and the physical layout of the home is a comfort for the individual, particularly in the early stages of the disease.
Safety and Protection
One aspect of Alzheimer care for seniors is to eliminate any safety considerations in the home. It is relatively easy to remove items that may pose a risk for falls or to create a home environment that is safe and reduces the risk of the individual wandering out of the home.
Staying in the home in a safe environment also allows the individual with Alzheimer's to have a set routine. Our caregivers are experienced in working with patients and can help integrate routines that are very structured, providing additional support for the individual and the family European Best Care.
