Home Care for Alzheimer's and Other Dementia
Some Alzheimer's patients - particularly those in the early and middle stages of the illness - can be cared for at home and don't require nursing homes or other facilities. In fact, more than half of all diagnosed Alzheimer's patients continue to live in home settings. Right at Home's services offer those who suffer from Alzheimer's:
- Familiar frame of reference
- Freedom to move about in a familiar, unrestricted space
- Minimal stress, which can aggravate the symptoms of Alzheimer's and dementia
- Daily orientation to time, place and people
- Continuity of daily routines and schedules
