There may come a time when your loved one is no longer able to care for themselves the way they used to due to dementia or Alzheimer’s. At Optimal Home Health Care in North Attleborough, we can provide your loved one with the support and care that they need to keep living their life in their own home. If you have a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s and you would like to help them live at home instead of in a senior care facility, contact Optimal Home Health Care today.

Management of Outbursts

Outbursts are common among those with Alzheimer’s and dementia and can occur due to agitation or frustration. Unfortunately, during an outburst, it can be difficult to help the patient calm down. At Optimal Home Health Care, part of our Alzheimer’s and dementia care services include management of outbursts. Our caretakers have years of experience dealing with patients suffering from these diseases, and we have the proper training to handle outbursts in the most professional manner.

Daily Living Care

Depending on the stage of your loved one’s condition, they may be able to function and complete daily tasks at an almost normal level. However, there may be some cases in which the activities of daily living are too much to handle. In these situations, our caretakers will work with your loved one to encourage them to participate in daily activities in order to maintain their daily routine. This may include going for walks, bathing, eating properly, and more.

Monitor for Wandering

One of the reasons that many families choose to move their loved one to a senior care facility is because they are worried about them wandering out of the house during the middle of the night. Wandering is common among patients with dementia or Alzheimer’s and can be quite scary when you wake up and your loved one is no longer in the house. Your loved one remaining in their home is the ideal situation, and with Optimal Home Health Care, our caregivers will be able to monitor for any instances in which your family member may try to wander away.
