Dementia In-Home Care Services
In-home care for a parent or loved one with Dementia or related Dementia will vary. Some Dementia is temporary and will require short-term support while others are chronic and needed support varies depending on the stage of dementia. Dementia in-home care provides the support needed so a parent or loved one can remain healthy and safe in their own home.

• Communication Problems
• Emotional Problems (Depression, Frustration, and Clinging)
• Memory Problems (Forgetfulness and Wandering)
• Behavior Problems (Aggression, Hallucination, Delusion, Hoarding, Sleep Problems, and Sundowning)
• Driving Problems
In-Home Care Services and Skills Needed
In-home care covers a range of activities which are customized to each individual’s needs. Below we have outlined the types of services we provide in both early and late stages of Dementia home care.
Personalized Care For Your Loved One
Our Supportive Care aides have advanced training and experience in caring for someone with Dementia. They understand when Dementia is reversible and only short-term needs exist. As well as, when it is irreversible and caused by a degenerative disease or trauma. Our Aides specialize in handling the erratic moods and behavior of a parent or loved one with Dementia. They also understand how to help maintain low levels of stress for the individual instead of escalating the stress level which some untrained caregivers may unwittingly do. They cater to the specific needs of an individual with dementia, often incorporating activities and experiences that are meant to stimulate one’s memory.
Ready to set started? Schedule a Free in-home Dementia assessment.
A parent or loved one with dementia can have different needs than others with dementia. To help you determine what level of assistance makes the most sense for your parent or loved one, we offer a free, in-home assessment by a registered nurse. These assessments evaluate an individual’s physical, social and cognitive well-being. A home safety check is also a part of this initial assessment.
