Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care
Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care
Caring for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease can be challenging. We really want mom to be able to stay at home, but what if something happens when we’re not there? How do I take care of dad, and also keep up with work and the kids? I think we may need some outside help, but how do I know for sure?
Thoughts like these are common among the millions of family caregivers nationwide currently caring for aging parents, relatives, or friends. You want your loved one to be safe and well cared for, but the responsibility of doing it on your own can be overwhelming. We can help make it easier.
Independence for them, peace of mind for you
Partnering with a professional home care provider like BAYADA gives your loved one the expert care they need, and you the reassurance and relief of knowing they are in good hands when you can’t be there. Every day our BAYADA Home Health Aides (HHAs) and certified nursing assistants (CNAs) provide dependable, experienced, compassionate care at home to thousands of clients and families living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. With hourly, ’round-the-clock, and even live-in options, you can get just the right amount of help.
Expert, reliable care
Consistency, reliability, and familiarity are important in all care situations, especially for individuals with dementia and Alzheimer’s. We will match your loved one with caregivers who will be there when you need them. We will learn your loved one’s routines and interests, and engage them in meaningful daily activities and hobbies that matter to them. Our caregivers can support your loved one’s independence while keeping them safe, in an environment that’s comfortable and familiar.
BAYADA caregivers also help with:
- Personal care (bathing, using the toilet, dressing, grooming, and more)
- Companionship for activities and appointments
- Meal planning and preparation
- Medication reminders
Our BAYADA caregivers who provide care to our clients with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease understand its different stages and symptoms. They have the knowledge and techniques to support your loved one’s independence, dignity, and happiness, and to help manage forgetfulness, irritability, and sadness. We will share best practices, recommendations, and resources with you, so that together we can provide the best care possible for your loved one.
Deciding when to get help for dementia or Alzheimer’s
Sometimes there is a specific incident that leads to the decision to consider home care. Other times, the need arises more gradually. Our care is flexible, so you can start with just a few hours of help a week. Every individual’s needs are different, and our BAYADA caregivers know how to relate to your loved one to give them support, encouragement, and assistance, while respecting their dignity, keeping them safe, and providing companionship.
It’s such a relief to have the aides from BAYADA. They give me a break so that I can get out and have some time for myself. I have full confidence in them— they really go above and beyond and allow me to keep my wife at home.
My mother’s aide comes to see her every morning, seven days a week, in her assisted living facility. The aide makes sure she is showered and impeccably dressed; she puts makeup on her, styles her hair, and makes sure the room is spotless. My mom looks forward to seeing her aide every day, she really likes her, and she seems really happy.
