Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care

In-Home Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care Jersey Shore Families Can Count On

After an aging parent or loved one has been diagnosed with dementia, a range of emotions follows. The earliest stages are often filled with uncertainty about what the future holds, and feelings of sadness, frustration and anger can follow. While helping your aging loved one remain at home is often the goal, a steady decline in cognitive and physical abilities can make this seem impossible. That’s where we come in. At Home Care Assistance Jersey Shore, we understand how overwhelming this process can be, and offer in-home care services designed specifically to help seniors with dementia live comfortably and safely at home.

Reliable Dementia Caregivers Assist with Activities of Daily Living

All Home Care Assistance caregivers undergo a rigorous screening process in which only about 1 in 25 applicants will make it through and be hired. After meeting our selection criteria, caregivers receive extensive training in how to care for seniors and older adults with dementia, guaranteeing they are able to effectively provide:

  • Nutritious meal preparation according to dietary preferences
  • Bathing, dressing, grooming and incontinence assistance
  • Help with mobility and wheelchair and/or bed transfers
  • Careful monitoring to prevent wandering and falls
  • Meaningful conversation to stimulate the mind and promote social ties
  • Companionship to combat feelings of boredom, isolation and depression

Revolutionary Care Program for Seniors with Dementia

Stabilizing cognitive functioning is an important component in the care we provide. Home Care Assistance has developed The Cognitive Therapeutics Method to help in slowing cognitive decline. This scientifically based program utilizes more than 300 activities to stimulate the mind in various areas. Our caregivers are carefully trained in the everyday use of these activities, and clients in need of a more intensive program are assigned a Certified Cognitive Therapeutics Interventionist to work one-on-one with them. Through the use of this program, our clients often live happier, more productive lives and are given the opportunity to age in the place they most want to be – their home.

Respite & Relief for Families of Dementia Patients

Home Care Assistance places a great emphasis on supporting both our clients and their families. In addition to one-on-one care and supervision for seniors with dementia, our compassionate caregivers allow family members to step away, relax and take care of their personal needs. We work closely with families, providing flexible care plans ranging from 4 to 24 hours per day, allowing the family members to conveniently meet any scheduling needs or preferences. To ensure peace of mind at all times, our Client Care Managers are available 24/7.  With our “We Will Be There” guarantee families know that we are available at any time, whether in the middle of the night to handle an emergency or on the weekends to change a caregiver’s schedule.

Tailored Care for Alzheimer’s Patients & Flexible Care Schedules

In the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s, cognitive decline is slow, and many seniors and older adults only experience minimal setbacks. While some families can attend to all of their loved one’s needs during this time, others find that enlisting the help of an in-home care provider is beneficial. Home Care Assistance works with the family to develop a customized plan of care that truly meets the needs of the individual diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Our caregivers provide transportation, assist with preparing meals and help with personal care, medication reminders and more. We give families the freedom to choose when and how often to bring our caregivers into their loved one’s home for extra support, supervision, socialization and encouragement.

As your aging loved one’s needs change, we communicate with your family, discuss changing needs with his or her healthcare team and adapt the plan of care as necessary. When the time comes, 24-hour assistance and overnight care are among our available options. This way, we are able to ensure safe, comfortable and effective in-home care throughout each stage of the disease.

Advanced Training for Alzheimer’s Caregivers

In addition to offering flexible services that meet the needs of an individual throughout each stage of Alzheimer’s, we also believe in taking measures to help slow the progression of the disease. All Home Care Assistance caregivers are trained in the Cognitive Therapeutics Method.

This one of a kind science-based cognitive stimulation program was designed by memory care experts and addresses both the cognitive and non-cognitive needs of individuals. The program is personalized for each client, highly inclusive of the family unit and includes more than 300 activities to target memory, speech, attention, executive functioning and visual-spatial perception. Utilizing this program often helps to delay cognitive decline and improve quality of life for the clients we serve.
