All of our Alzheimer's and dementia CAREGivers℠ take part in our unique and critically acclaimed training program called CARE: Changing Aging through Research and Education®.

We have helped change the way people live with Alzheimer's and other dementias.​

Alzheimer's Care Services

Alzheimer's disease doesn't only affect the family member with the condition. Alzheimer's impacts whole families. Coping with this progressive condition requires boundless quantities of patience, empathy and love. Professional caregiving provides individualized care for your loved one and gives you back some time to recharge. Our specially trained Alzheimer's CAREGivers offer an expanded array of services to your loved one:

  • Encouragement to do as much as they can on their own
  • Personal care assistance, such as toileting, bathing and grooming
  • Maintain a routine to discourage agitation and outbursts
  • Mental stimulation through conversation and other activities
  • Maintaining a safe environment
  • Manage changing behaviors
  • Adapting the level of care as the disease progresses
  • Honor who the senior was earlier in life
  • Provide nutritious meals
  • Assist with ambulation and socialization
  • Transport to medical appointments and other events
  • Support the family
  • Light housework and other household tasks
  • Pet care

Dementia Care Services 

Alzheimer's disease is a type of dementia, but not all dementias are Alzheimer's disease. If your loved one has been diagnosed with dementia, vascular dementia, sudden-onset dementia, Lewy Body Disease (dementia with Lewy bodies) or any other type of cognitive impairment, we can help. A professional CAREGiver from Home Instead Senior Care can help your loved one with dementia stay safe and happy at home.

A few of the benefits of professional dementia care: 

  • Caregiving just when you need it. In the early stages of dementia, people may only need wake-up or tuck-in services. As the disease progresses, we will work with you to expand care to meet your loved one's need and budget.
  • Respite. Dementia can take a toll on family caregivers. Our professional CAREGivers will provide compassionate care to your loved one while you take some much-needed time for yourself. Schedule one day a week "off" for yourself, or take a weekend getaway to refresh and recharge your energy. Meanwhile, you can be assured your loved one is secure and well cared-for at home.
  • An expert knowledge base at your disposal. As your family member's dementia progresses, you may have a lot of questions about what is 'normal' behavior. Our CAREGivers can share their wealth of knowledge and experience with you to ease your mind.

Testimonials

"My aunt was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease 7 months ago. I am her primary caregiver, but I live >800km away and I discovered a few months after moving her into a private retirement home that the care provided by the retirement home was insufficient to meet her needs. Colleen has been my aunt’s caregiver for the past 5 months and she has had such a positive impact on her quality of life. My aunt has always been a fiercely independent person and I think was concerned that her independence would be taken away with the diagnosis. Without close family or friends nearby, Colleen’s care and companionship allows her to maintain some of that independence, a key element in the maintenance of dignity in the face of a life-altering disease. As I live so far away, Collen has become my eyes and ears ensuring that my aunt has necessary household supplies, snacks, and is able to attend medical appointments. Colleen has gone above and beyond to make sure that my aunt is well taken care of and I know my aunt really appreciates her and truly enjoys her companionship. Although we have never directly spoken with each other, I feel like Colleen is a trusted family member. Shanyce’s weekly updates and responsiveness to my emails are incredibly reassuring. I am very grateful for the services provided by the staff at Home Instead."
