Alzheimer's Care in Pooler, GA
Learn more about our Alzheimer's care for seniors facing Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer's care is designed to maximize a senior's independence and improve their quality of life. Of course, this is easier said than does, since each person's definition of a quality life is quite different and highly personal. One senior may find sitting quietly feeding the birds, enjoying nature, or watching traffic pass by to be the height of contentment. Others may desire a throng of people, intense socialization, and many relationships. Because each senior is so different, it is imperative that caregivers get to know them on a personal basis if they are to truly identify, let alone improve on, a senior's perception of quality of life.
Comfort Keepers Alzheimer's care is based on their trademarked interactive caregiving model. This form of caregiving necessitates that caregivers get to know the seniors they care for in order to find out what they like, what they don't like, what they are passionate about, what they are fond of, and what they want to avoid. By taking the time to interact with seniors at this foundational level, not only do caregivers get to better understand those they are caring for, but they also draw the senior into their own care by engaging them in social, emotional, and cognitive interactions.
Pooler Alzheimer's Care
One of the primary tenets of Alzheimer's care that all professional and family caregivers should learn and remember is that seniors with Alzheimer's disease, regardless of their loss of capacity or ability, still desire to enjoy life, find pleasure and joy, and experience satisfaction. Since most seniors in the later stages of the disease will be unable to meet these desires themselves, Alzheimer's care is necessary to provide the necessary supports.
Sometimes, the best Alzheimer's care may entail nothing more than a calm and positive presence, a reassuring hand, a strong shoulder, or an understanding ear. While many tasks and chores are essential for the senior's health and physical well-being, compassionate understanding, empathy, and a loving touch are every bit as important for emotional and mental health.
If your senior loved one has Alzheimer's disease, maximize the time your have with them during the early stages of the disease. However, do not forget that the same beloved senior is there in the later stages as well. They may not be able to respond the same way they did before the disease progressed, but they desire your companionship just the same. For families that cannot be there, or for family caregivers who need a respite, Comfort Keepers offers specialized dementia and Alzheimer's care to ensure your senior loved one does not go through the trials of this disease alone.
