Alzheimer’s Care Clarksville Families Can Rely On
Living life with a sense of purpose is always important, and this is especially true after a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. Seniors living with this disease often face many new limitations that impact how they talk, act, behave, and function. Some believe their lives no longer have purpose, which causes a downward spiral and further cognitive decline. Families holding on to hope need professional support, and this is where Home Care Assistance of Clarksville, TN, comes in. Our memory care specialists provide compassionate assistance at home. With our help, seniors enjoy meaningful connections and feel supported and empowered to live their best lives despite the diagnosis. This changes their picture of the future, gives life new meaning and purpose, and helps them safely and comfortably continue to age in place.
Individualized Alzheimer’s Care Meets Each Senior’s Unique Needs
Alzheimer’s is a disease that is sometimes difficult to understand because it impacts seniors in very different ways. While some are prone to wandering even in the earliest stages, others remain mostly independent until the middle or late stages. Trying to meet these personal and changing needs is often frustrating for family caregivers. Clarksville Home Care Assistance understands the importance of meeting the current care needs of each senior with Alzheimer’s. Our personalized Alzheimer’s care plans are developed after a thorough assessment of cognitive and functional levels as well as a discussion with the senior, family members, and involved medical professionals. As needs change, the care plan can be reviewed and modified so it remains appropriate. This approach offers the optimum level of care right at home and ensures vulnerable seniors always remain safe and comfortable.
Our Alzheimer’s care plans incorporate:
- Personal care when seniors are unable to meet needs independently
- Transportation when cognitive decline makes driving unsafe
- Gentle response to agitation, aggression, and repetition
- Reminders to eat, take medication, and participate in healthy, appropriate activities
Mentally Stimulating Activities That Slow Cognitive Decline
In addition to meeting changing needs, our Alzheimer’s care plans incorporate proven methods that slow cognitive decline and enhance functioning and quality of life. Our Cognitive Therapeutics Method™ (CTM) is an excellent example. This proprietary program utilizes mentally stimulating activities to engage seniors and empower them. Each Alzheimer’s caregiver at Home Care Assistance Clarksville is trained in CTM, and it is offered to our memory care clients at no additional charge.
