Home Instead Offers Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care to Elderly Residents of Boston, Boston, Massachusetts

Caring for a loved one who is suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s is a difficult task, mainly due to the fact that watching your mother, father, or other relative consistently forget the times you’ve shared can be emotionally devastating. Prior to dementia, spending time with your elderly loved one meant going shopping, getting lunch, or just sitting and chatting. Once the disease sets in, it becomes increasingly difficult to spend valuable time with the people you love. If you can’t care for your loved one on your own, Home Instead Senior Care in Boston, MA provides, dementia care, Alzheimer’s care, and assisted living services.

The caregivers at Home Instead provide the highest level of care possible for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. They practice the following skills to help make living with either disease easier for both you and your loved one:

  • Remembering The Times: By collecting past photographs, stories, and experiences, the caregivers are able to provide customized care while also honoring your loved one in his or her earlier life.
  • Behavior Management: The caregivers use various techniques to help manage behavior, such as giving redirection and simple instructions that allow the senior to stay safe and calm.
  • Engagement: The senior’s mind, body, and soul are engaged throughout the day in activities that will enhance physical strength, build self-esteem, and reduce the need to manage behavior.
  • Support: Home Instead understands the difficulties that come with Alzheimer’s and dementia, which is why they work closely with and have open discussions with you and your family.

In addition to providing the care seniors need, the caregivers at Home Instead Senior Care also offer companionship, which is necessary for any illness or age. Visit Home Instead online for more information on services.
