Among the many services MAS Home Care specializes in is Rhode Island Alzheimer’s care. If you have a loved one afflicted by Alzheimer’s disease, you know that it can be a challenging situation for both the patient and his or her family.
Alzheimer’s disease affects a patient’s memory and judgment and can leave them disorientated and confused. The majority of individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s are seniors, though in rare cases it can affect young and middle aged adults. According to statistics published by the Alzheimer’s Association in March of 2012, approximately 5.4 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease; 24,000 of which are living here in Rhode Island.
Leaving a family member home alone with this disease can be dangerous, as they cannot follow normal daily routines on their own. Loss of memory could lead to forgetting to turn off appliances and distraction performing simple tasks could lead to injury. Alzheimer’s patients require special attention that MAS Home Care, a leader in Rhode Island Alzheimer’s care, can provide.
For many reasons, you may not be able to control the situation and you may feel lost as to how to provide proper, compassionate care for your family member. Many people think the only way to give the patient the attention and care they need is to place them in a nursing home. As an alternative, let MAS Home Care provide services in the comfort of the patient’s home and give you peace of mind. Having the opportunity to remain at home allows individuals to maintain a level of independence and creates less emotional distress for the patient and family. MAS Home Care can be there from the early stages on as the disease progresses.
MAS Home Care will assign every Alzheimer’s patient with a CNA who is qualified and trained to meet their specific and individualized needs. CNAs employed by MAS Home Care will provide assistance to the patient with personal chores like bathing, dressing, feeding, medication reminders and also attending doctors’ appointments. She or he will run errands for the patient, for example grocery shopping, prescription pick-up and so on. Most importantly, the CNA will provide safety supervision.
