We believe that people with dementia still have feelings, desires, wants and needs. Many home dementia care plans lack structure and can leave your loved one in front of the TV or sleeping all day. This leads to lower self-esteem and frustration, which often evolves into problematic behaviors such as agitation and wandering.
True Direct Home Health Care is meeting this serious health care issue head on by implementing a program to help people who struggle with this disease.
Steps True Direct Will Take for Your Loved One
A care manager and certified dementia specialist will come to your home and conduct a dementia assessment that is far more detailed than an ordinary home care assessment
We then create a customized care plan and daily schedule which includes tasks and activities that create a meaningful and enjoyable day. All activities are based on each person’s personal interests and appropriate for their current level of dementia.
Creating a predictable day with essential tasks and meaningful activities can help them live a happier, fulfilled life in the comfort of their home. The end result is the person with Alzheimer’s is happier and safer and their family caregiver finds the stress relief they so desperately need.
A special emphasis is put on working with family members to teach them what to expect and how to work with the person in need.
Follow-up visits are performed by the care manager to re-assess the current level of dementia and to make changes to activities as needed. Some questions to consider:
- Who will make healthcare and/or financial decisions when the person is no longer able to do so?
- How will the health and home care needs be met?
- Where will the person live? Is his or her own home appropriate, or is it difficult to access or make safe for later? If the person is currently living alone, for example, or far from any family or other support, it may be necessary to relocate or consider a facility with more support.
