Having an aging family member at home who is in the grip of Alzheimer’s disease can be extremely difficult and painful. An Alzheimer’s patient may become extra demanding and requires special attention. His/her family is likely to feel helpless and miserable as they can do little to control the situation.
Alzheimer’s patients in New England can remain as independent as possible in their own homes with some help from MAS Home Care. We provide Maine home care, New Hampshire home care, and Rhode Island home care.
Commonly afflicting people in the senior age group, Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia are diseases in which the patient can never be left unattended. His or her family should understand that the Alzheimer’s patient cannot handle normal routines on their own – they may require help with every task, especially in later stages of the disease.
At MAS Home Care, we understand how difficult it is to tend to someone 24/7. It is good to leave the patient under the care of a caregiver for safety supervision purposes. The patient can unknowingly leave the gas or taps on, can leave the iron unattended or do many other things that can be compromising to their safety. The patient can become agitated, dejected or disoriented when left alone. It is good to make sure that someone is around at all times. All Alzheimer’s care and needs can be handled by MAS Home Care, a reputed in-home care providing agency.
MAS Home Care will allocate every Alzheimer patient with a competent caregiver, one who aptly matches the Alzheimer patient’s personality and needs. Even the patient’s family can stay relieved to note that their loved one is in capable hands and able to remain in their own home. Caregivers employed by MAS Home Care are qualified and trained, and may include personal care service providers, personal support specialists, certified nursing assistants, or licensed nursing assistants.
A dedicated MAS Home Care caregiver will take charge of the Alzheimer’s patient in a befitting manner. She/he will provide assistance to the patient in personal chores like bathing, dressing, feeding, medication reminders and also attending doctor’s appointments. She/he will even run errands for the patient, for example grocery shopping, prescription pick up and so on. Caregiving does not mean just providing company to the Alzheimer’s patient but also supervising the patient’s activities from a safety point of view. Thus, MAS Home Care providers help to impart a sense of relief to the patient’s family circle, who are now confident that their loved one is safe and in caring hands.
Alzheimer’s Care has to be a steadfast job and the caregivers from MAS Home Care know this well. Caregivers work hard to preserve the dignity and rights of the Alzheimer’s patients. Not only this, they educate and pacify the patient’s family by helping to have a more optimistic outlook.
