The comfort offered by the familiar surroundings of home often make aging in place the ideal situation for a senior with dementia. However, symptoms of dementia, such as bouts of confusion, disorientation, and memory loss, can make it unsafe for your loved one to live at home alone. If that’s the case, turn to the trusted and experienced dementia caregivers at Home Care Assistance of Halifax who can assist with day-to-day activities while providing around-the-clock safety monitoring.
A senior with dementia requires a different kind of care compared to a senior who needs help with basic tasks a few days a week. At Halifax Home Care Assistance, our caregivers are not only equipped to handle daily responsibilities, they’re experts in dementia care and trained to lessen the negative feelings and effects that can accompany the disease. All of our dementia caregivers are also trained in the Cognitive Therapeutics Method, which was designed to slow cognitive decline. Dementia caregivers use activities and games to increase mental stimulation, bolster a sense of purpose and achievement, and promote overall wellbeing.
We offer both flexible hourly schedules as well as 24/7 live-in care to ensure your senior loved one has the right amount of care at the right time. Whether your loved one needs to move from hourly care to live-in care or you simply have a family emergency and cannot be there overnight, Home Care Assistance of Halifax will be there for you and your loved one.
