Alzheimer’s Care

In-Home Alzheimer’s Support

When a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, it is typical for the family to want to spend more time with them, and take on all aspects of their care. In fact, the Alzheimer’s Association estimates that over 15.5 million caregivers provided over 17.7 billion hours of unpaid Alzheimer’s care in 2013. It is wonderful when family can care for each another, but often the burden becomes stressful, as caregivers become responsible for more and more aspects of their loved one’s day-to-day needs. This burden increases as symptoms progress and attending family members feel unable to take time away to support their own wellbeing.

Select Home Care can help. We provide skilled Alzheimer’s support designed to help seniors and their families thrive. Our services include personal care, routine housekeeping, and companionship. These are often delivered in concert, to increase the likelihood that clients with Alzheimer’s can remain at home for many years. Studies have indicated that prognoses for Alzheimer’s patients improve when patients are surrounded by the people, places, and things most familiar to them.

Our Alzheimer’s support can be as involved or as supplementary as you like. We work with each family we serve to personalize their loved one’s care plan. Perhaps you want to maintain the bulk of your loved one’s care, but need a few hours to yourself a couple times a week. We offer hourly home care services that provide that flexibility, with no minimum hour requirement. If your loved one needs 24-hour assistance, we also offer live-in care.

Whatever the level of support you need, Select Home Care is here for you. Call us today to learn more about our in-home Alzheimer’s care programs.
