Your loved one is more than just a patient; they’re a person. At Rosewood on the Sound, we understand this more than anything. That’s why we offer dementia care services that help individuals with all stages of the condition. Our dementia care services go beyond Alzheimer’s care. We provide in-home and resident care to clients with dementia and related conditions, such as:
- Huntington’s disease
- Vascular dementia
- Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD)
- Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD)
- Lewy Body Dementia
- Mixed Dementia
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome
Our goal is to help people with dementia live life to the fullest and for their families to be able to get back to their lives without having to worry about how their loved ones are doing. We want our patients and their families to feel like they’re a part of something bigger than themselves, rather than being isolated from loved ones because no one can watch over them 24/7. With Alzheimer’s care facilities, you can rest easy knowing your loved one is safe and cared for.
Dementia is not a specific disease but rather a medical term that describes the gradual and progressive decline in physical and mental functions. Dementia care helps individuals with this condition. As people with dementia age, their memory becomes less reliable. They also have difficulty learning new skills or solving problems. They may become confused about time and place, have difficulty communicating and making decisions, or have abrupt changes in mood or behavior.
Dementia care mitigates these symptoms. It enables a person to perform daily tasks, such as
- Paying bills on time
- Taking the medication on time
- Eating on a schedule
- Bathing regularly
- Keeping to doctor’s and other appointments
Family members and caregivers must help them maintain ADLs or activities of daily living (such as bathing, toileting, and eating) as much as possible during the early stages of dementia care to enable them to form a routine. When it comes to dementia care at home vs. a facility, it’s up to you and your loved one to decide which is the most beneficial for your unique situation.
The Benefits of Dementia Care
Dementia care can be difficult for patients and their loved ones. At Rosewood on the Sound, we understand this and aim to provide quality dementia care.
Some of the benefits of dementia care include:
Better Quality of Life
The most common symptom of dementia is memory loss. Dementia care includes memory activities that slow down this process, improving your loved one’s quality of life.
Many people with dementia have problems with depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. Dementia care provides a safe space for your loved ones where they won’t feel judged for forgetting things. They are also encouraged to talk about what’s going on in their head.
Because of the constant communication and contact with caregivers, patients receiving dementia care are safer in their environment. If an accident or injury occurs, someone will become more aware of their situation and offer help.
Dementia care enables seniors to lead a more independent life. This delays their institutionalization, promoting a higher quality of life in their sunset years.
