The most common form of dementia among seniors is Alzheimer's disease. Being in familiar surroundings and following familiar routines may help seniors cope better with their symptoms, including confusion and irritability. Our Alzheimer's and Dementia care in El Paso is designed to help seniors living with Alzheimer's disease and dementia remain safely in their own homes, receiving the specialized care and support they need.
Seniors with Alzheimer's disease and dementia benefit from familiar daily routines and schedules. A scheduled day enables seniors to focus more on meaningful and enjoyable activities, spending less time trying to remember what they need to do. Our caregivers structure daily activities based on a senior's preferences, abilities, strengths, and needs. Seniors living with cognitive decline don't have to stop doing what they enjoy. Familiar and enjoyable activities may reduce behaviors like wandering or agitation and improve their quality of life.
Dementia and Alzheimer's disease progressively impede one's ability to communicate. Communicating with someone who has dementia requires patience, understanding, and exceptional listening skills. When listening to and talking with our seniors, our experienced and specially trained caregivers will exercise the utmost patience, compassion, and care.
For seniors living with Alzheimer's disease and dementia, preparing nutritious meals and remembering to eat may become challenging. They can become confused, forget to eat, or mistakenly believe they've already eaten. Our caregivers will prepare nutritious and delicious meals and encourage seniors to eat regularly. Getting the proper daily nutrition supports good health and overall well-being.
Seniors with dementia have a more difficult time performing personal care tasks, but may feel awkward asking for or receiving assistance with private activities such as bathing and toileting. Seniors who find these intimate tasks frightening, embarrassing, and unpleasant may express their anxiety vocally or physically, causing the situation to become unsafe. Our caregivers will utilize patience and reassurance while assisting with personal care tasks, maintaining dignity and privacy in a respectful and compassionate manner.
With dementia, it becomes difficult to remember to take important medications at the correct time and at the proper dosage. Seniors with cognitive decline can forget to take their medications or take more than the prescribed dose. To ensure that our seniors take their prescriptions and over-the-counter medications as prescribed, our caregivers offer friendly reminders and oversee medication management.
Doctors, family members, and caregivers must work together to ensure quality care for seniors living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Our caregivers offer reminders and keep track of important appointments. We also provide safe and timely transportation to and from medical appointments.
Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease is a full-time job, and requires immense energy and patience. Our respite care services are here to provide family caregivers a break from caring for their loved ones so they can take care of their own needs. Our respite caregivers will provide compassionate care for your loved one while you’re away.
