Dementia is an irreversible disease, but there is much we can do to support loved ones who have been diagnosed in maintaining their independence and living a high-quality life. Providing the right level of support is key in achieving this goal. Enlisting the assistance of a proven, professional agency allows families to do just that without sacrificing their own needs, jobs, or families. Home Care Assistance of New Haven County, , is here to help.
Our dementia caregivers are passionate about assisting seniors, and they do far more than help with activities of daily living. Our caregivers provide personalized care and develop meaningful relationships with seniors in the comfort of home. They engage seniors in puzzles and games, provide socially stimulating conversation, encourage appropriate physical activity and empower those in their care to maintain their highest level of independence. This approach encourages seniors with dementia to remain positive about receiving care and often reduces anxiety, anger, and depression.
The field of dementia care continues to grow and change as we learn more about this disease and approaches to treating it. Home Care Assistance of New Haven County recognizes the importance of ongoing research and incorporates it into the care we provide. Our caregivers receive ongoing training in innovative approaches including our Balanced Care Method and Cognitive Therapeutic Method. These methods recognize the importance of sensory stimulation and an individualized, holistic approach to caring for every individual with dementia. Both methods are incorporated into the plan of care at no additional charge as part of our effort to help your loved one to feel comfortable, safe, and valued.
