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 of Southwest Florida can help your loved one with dementia stay safe and happy at home.
A few of the benefits of professional dementia care:
- The Tailored Care you need. The care needs of your loved one changes throughout the different stages of the disease. We have been through all the stages and understand the challenges of each one. We will stand with your family, addressing these changing needs with caregiving exactly matched to the need.
- 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, 24/7. As your family member’s dementia progresses, you may have a lot of questions about what is ‘normal’ behavior. Our expert staff and CAREGivers can share their wealth of knowledge and experience with you to ease your mind.
Parkinson’s Care Services
After Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease is the most common neuro-degenerative disorder in America. Home Instead Senior Care of Southwest Florida offers specialized caregiving services to families affected by Parkinson’s.
Parkinson’s disease produces physical symptoms like tremors that get worse over time. Professional in-home caregiving can improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson’s. We can help with:
- Independent living. Our in-home assistance keeps your loved one at home. Our specially trained CAREGivers can help meet the unique needs of people with Parkinson’s.
- Adjustment support. As the disease progresses, your loved one may struggle to adapt to a loss of physical function. Our CAREGivers provide compassionate support in helping your family member adapt physically and emotionally to these changes.
- Personal care. We will provide personal care, such as toileting and bathing, with dignity and respect.
