Typical issues people experience when providing home care to elderly parents with dementia include difficulty communicating, changes in mood and behavior, difficulty with daily tasks such as bathing and dressing, sleep disturbances, and wandering or getting lost.
Family caregivers may struggle to balance their caregiving responsibilities with other aspects of their lives, such as work or caring for their families. In addition, caring for a loved one with dementia can be emotionally draining and may lead to stress, guilt, and sadness.
When providing professional home care services for a person with Alzheimer's or dementia, caregivers aim to create a safe and comfortable environment for the individual, promote routine and consistency, and manage challenging behaviors. The specific services provided by a professional caregiver for an Alzheimer's or dementia patient include:
In summary, professional caregivers provide specialized services to help individuals with Alzheimer's or dementia live safely and comfortably in their homes. By promoting routine and consistency, managing challenging behaviors, and providing emotional support, caregivers can help enhance the quality of life for those with memory-related conditions.
Ezra Home Care has developed a specialized program to enable clients to remain in their homes safely for as long as possible and avoid unnecessary hospitalization. Our caregivers complete a comprehensive training program to understand the disease process and learn strategies to manage difficult behaviors. Key areas of training are communication skills, safety concerns, managing challenging behaviors, engaging clients in meaningful activities and activities of daily living.
We recognize that each client has unique care needs that change overtime. Re-evaluation of each care plan is completed regularly and adjustments are made as necessary.
Our caregivers undergo a rigorous screening process including a criminal background investigation, certification or licensing verification (in applicable positions), and a thorough reference check. The caregivers that we select are all people that we would want to take care of our own loved ones.
First we will conduct a free Safety and Needs Assessment of your loved one or of your current situation. The Safety and Needs Assessment will allow us to customize a care schedule and determine the type of caregiver your loved one or you may need. Then we will give you and your family the chance to meet with several caregivers that match your needs and schedule.
If you find, for any reason, that you would prefer to try another caregiver we will find a replacement for you.
No problem. At Ezra Home Care, we have no minimum hour requirements.
Absolutely. Many of our clients need more care than an assisted living community can provide but do not want to live in a nursing home. As long as your community approves, we can supplement your care services so that you can remain as independent as possible.
We are happy to assist you no matter where you live. If you find that you’d like a companion to talk to, an escort to an appointment or any type of assistance beyond your nursing home’s services, we are there for you.
Private pay means that services are paid for using personal income or assets—without aid from insurance or government benefits. We would be happy to discuss pricing details with you directly.
Ezra Home Care is large enough to handle all of your home care needs, yet small enough to give you the personalized service and care you deserve. Since Ezra Home Care is privately owned, we have a greater flexibility of accommodating our clients' needs. We are not bound by territory, and are capable of providing continued care even when our clients are being relocated to another areas. Our decision-making process is more efficient than that of a franchise because all of our decisions are made right in the office, without the need for a comparatively lengthy corporate approval process. Schedule a free Needs and Safety Assessment and you’ll see exactly what we mean.

“After hospice put me in the horrible position I called Ezra in a panic. They were kind and compassionate and moved mountains to get me a trained aide at the last moment. Everyone I was in contact with was kind and sympathetic and called after to offer condolences. I was impressed with everyone I spoke to and met. I would highly recommend them.”
“Very professional and caring agency. They worked hard to match me with the perfect caregiver during my recovery. Thank you.hank you. for us.”
We listen to your needs and concerns about the kind of care you or your loved one may need.
