Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care

At Affordable Home Health Care, our staff are trained to help those with dementia or Alzheimer’s, and their loved ones, to handle the realities of living with these conditions.

While dementia and Alzheimer’s both have slow and unpredictable trajectories, those with the conditions often need help with personal grooming and handling toileting. They may also face behavioral changes, like aggression and wandering, as well as difficulties communicating.

Family and friends caring for those with these long-term degenerative conditions can often end up feeling overwhelmed and burnt out. They need support as much as those living with the conditions.  

We can provide home health care assistance for a few hours a day or around the clock, depending on your needs.

What does dementia/ Alzheimer’s care include?

Assistance with Personal Grooming

Our caregivers are trained to provide dignified and respectful assistance with personal grooming, including bathing, oral care, dressing and handling toileting.

Meal Planning and Preparation

Those with dementia or Alzheimer’s often forget to eat or drink, and can have difficulty swallowing as the disease progresses. Maintaining a proper diet can help them get the nutrition they need.

Transport, Grocery Shopping and Errands

We can help those with dementia or Alzheimer’s get to and from appointments. We can also help them with grocery shopping, prescription pick up and other errands, or handle these errands for them.

Managing Behavioral Symptoms

Dementia can lead to changes in behavior, including agitation, aggression, or wandering. Our caregivers are trained in techniques that can redirect or diffuse challenging situations.

Cognitive Stimulation Activities

In order to maintain cognitive abilities, our caregivers will try to engage those with dementia or Alzheimer’s in activities aligned with their interests, including memory games, puzzles and music therapy.

Support for Caregivers

Dementia and Alzheimer’s can be overwhelming for loved ones and family caregivers. We offer respite care, to give primary caregivers a break, as well as offering emotional support and educational support for family members regarding the disease’s progression.

Advance Care Planning

It’s important to think and plan ahead with dementia and Alzheimer’s. We help to provide an understanding of the likely progression of the disease and facilitate discussions on sensitive topics like end-of-life care, so loved ones know the wishes of those with dementia, while they still have capacity to make decisions.

Safety Measures

We help assess potential hazards in the home and put safety measures in place to reduce risk and allow those with dementia to move around safely and independently.

Communication Strategies

Communication can be hard for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Our caregivers use special communication techniques to promote understanding and reduce frustration.

Customized Care

Our caregivers are not medically trained, but we have nurses on staff who help create personalized care plans and provide regular visits to update patient care plans if needed.

What are the benefits of dementia and Alzheimer’s care?

Better Quality of Life

Our caregivers provide support for daily activities, including helping those with dementia participate in social engagements and providing cognitive stimulation.

More Independence

By allowing those with dementia to stay in their homes and helping them with daily tasks and errands, we can assist them to maintain independence.

Improved Safety

We help manage hazards in the home as well as being on hand to reduce the risk of accidents, wandering, or other safety concerns.

More Independence

Companionship and caregiver assistance allows those on hospice care to stay in their homes and maintain some independence.

Fewer Medical Issues

By ensuring those with dementia maintain their personal grooming and dental hygiene, as well as regularly taking any prescribed medication, we help reduce medical complications.

Fewer Burnouts for Family

Family caregivers often feel burnt out and overwhelmed trying to manage when a loved one has dementia. We provide them with respite and emotional support.


Home care can be more cost-effective than an extended hospital stay, making healthcare more accessible and affordable.

Reduced Disruption

Home care can allow for a more flexible schedule, reducing disruption to a patient’s daily routines and preferences.

Who Benefits?

Individuals with Alzheimer’s and Dementia

Those with dementia can find it increasingly difficult to manage by themselves.
