The Comfort and Familiarity of Home Plays a Vital Role
According to recent studies conducted by the Alzheimer’s Association, remaining in the familiar surroundings of home plays a vital role in managing the disease. Because Alzheimer’s patients suffer from memory loss and forgetfulness, home care is an extremely effective care option. Our specialty care for Alzheimer’s patients gives families the peace of mind knowing their loved one is taken care of by a professional and loving caregiver in the comfort and familiarity of home.
Special Care for the Special Needs of Alzheimer's Patients
Alzheimer’s impairs the cognitive and social abilities of seniors due to memory loss and confusion. Performing simple every day tasks become difficult and even dangerous in the advance stages of the disease. Safety and security of seniors with Alzheimer’s become a major worry for their family and loved ones. Because of the progressive and irreversible nature of Alzheimer’s, not only do the care needs of most seniors increase overtime but they also require specialty care to address their needs. Caregivers assisting seniors with Alzheimer’s must have special training in order to best meet the unique needs of these clients. Our revolutionary care approach known as “The Balanced Care Method” includes:
- Home safety evaluation
- Assistance with daily activities
- Encouraging independence
- Addressing nutritional needs
- Mental stimulation activates and exercises

" I work frequently with older adults. Many need help with activities of daily living, especially meal preparation, so I am excited to learn about the Balanced Care Method™ for caregivers. The information in the training manual about a healthy diet reflects the latest research, and the fact that it is based on the habits of the long-lived elders of Okinawa is very inspiring. "
