Alzheimer's and dementia are prevalent conditions in the elderly population. According to the Alzheimer's Association, more than six million people in the United States live with Alzheimer's, and one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia.

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:

  1. Memory Care: Alzheimer's and dementia patients often experience memory loss, and caregivers can help them recall essential details like medication schedules, appointments, and daily routines. They can also use memory games and exercises to help slow the progression of memory loss.

  2. Personal Care: Caregivers can assist with daily activities, such as bathing, grooming, and dressing, to help maintain a sense of normalcy for the individual. They also monitor for any changes in hygiene or physical condition, which can indicate a change in health.

  3. Medication Management: Alzheimer's and dementia patients often require multiple medications, which must be taken at the right time and in dosage. Professional caregivers can manage medications, ensure proper dosages, and coordinate with medical professionals.

  4. Mobility Assistance: Dementia and Alzheimer's patients may struggle with balance and mobility, making them more prone to falls. Caregivers can assist with mobility, including transfers, walking, and helping the individual move around safely.

  5. Meal Preparation: A professional caregiver can prepare nutritious meals for the individual, considering any dietary restrictions or preferences. This helps ensure the individual receives adequate nutrition and hydration, essential for maintaining good health.

  6. Emotional Support: Alzheimer's and dementia can be isolating, and caregivers can provide companionship, engage in meaningful activities, and offer emotional support to help alleviate feelings of loneliness and isolation.

  7. Behavior Management: Dementia and Alzheimer's patients may display challenging behaviors such as wandering, agitation, or aggression. Caregivers are trained to manage and respond to these behaviors calmly and compassionately, using techniques such as redirection and reassurance.

  8. Communication Techniques: Professional caregivers are trained in communication techniques to help improve interactions between the caregiver and the individual with Alzheimer's or dementia. These techniques may include speaking slowly, using visual aids, and validating feelings and concerns.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you select caregivers to join the Ezra Home Care team?

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.

How do I know that I or my loved one will be assigned a caregiver that is a good fit?

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.

What if the caregiver I am assigned is not a good match for me?

If you find, for any reason, that you would prefer to try another caregiver we will find a replacement for you.

What if I only need help for an hour or two?

No problem. At Ezra Home Care, we have no minimum hour requirements.

If I already live in an assisted living community, can I still use your services?

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.

What if I’ve already moved into a nursing home, but still want services that Ezra Home Care offers?

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.

Ezra Home Care is a “private pay” service. What does that mean?

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.

Are there any other ways to pay for private home care services?

Yes, there are other available options:
  • Long term care insurance
  • Reverse mortgages
  • Veterans Administrations
  • Workman’s Compensation
  • State and local programs, community organizations
  • Viatical Settlement

Why choose Ezra Home Care over a franchise?

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.”
