If you have a senior parent who has Alzheimer’s, you’re probably worried about finding the best living situation for them. Most seniors want to continue living at home as they get older. But, family caregivers often wonder if seniors who have Alzheimer’s will be safe living alone.

There is a way that your senior mom or dad can stay in the home that they love, and you can stop worrying about them. Alzheimer’s home care. Alzheimer’s home care for seniors is specialized care created to meet the unique needs of seniors who have Alzheimer’s.

Whether your senior parent has just been diagnosed or is progressing in their Alzheimer’s journey, they may be able to stay at home. Alzheimer’s home care provides compassionate care that will help your senior parent continue living independently.

Some of the ways that Alzheimer’s home care helps seniors continue to live alone at home are:

 

Structured Routine

Alzheimer’s home care can give seniors with Alzheimer’s consistency in their days. Establishing a consistent daily routine can reduce confusion and anxiety. Regular schedules for meals, medications, activities, and sleep help create a sense of stability. And as your senior parent’s Alzheimer’s progresses the consistency of their routine will help them cope with their cognitive changes.

 

Medication Reminders

Caregivers will remind your senior parent when they need to take their medication. Alzheimer’s medications and other medications that can help seniors who have Alzheimer’s, like anti-anxiety medications, need to be taken exactly as prescribed at the same time each day. A care provider can ensure that your senior parent knows when they need to take their medications daily.

 

Safety Assessments

An experienced Alzheimer’s home care provider will offer suggestions and perform safety assessments so that the home will continue to be safe for your mom or dad. They can suggest safety equipment and adaptive devices that will help keep your senior parent safe as their cognitive power changes.

 

Help With Meals

Caregivers can prepare nutritious meals and make sure that your senior parent is eating the way they should. Seniors with Alzheimer’s often forget to eat and drink regularly. That can cause weight loss and dehydration, which can both make existing medical problems worse. But with the help of a qualified Alzheimer’s home care provider, your senior parent will continue eating healthy meals daily.

 

Cognitive Engagement

A caregiver who is trained to work with seniors who have Alzheimer’s will make sure that your mom or dad has plenty of cognitive engagement. They know lots of activities and games that stimulate the mind, such as puzzles, games, and crafts. Engaging in cognitive boosting activities can help maintain cognitive function and provide mental engagement.

 

Emergency Help

If your senior parent wanders off and gets lost, falls and gets hurt, or has any situation where they need medical help, you won’t have to worry that they will forget how to call for help. Someone will always be there to help them stay calm and get the help they need.

 

Behavioral Support

Caregivers trained in Alzheimer’s home care can manage challenging behaviors such as agitation, aggression, or wandering using techniques that are calming and redirecting.
