Dementia is a common and often stressful diagnosis for many seniors. The uncertainty of how to plan for the future leaves many feeling hopeless and without options. At Home Care Assistance of Greater Portland, ME, our trained professionals help seniors and their families overcome the challenges a diagnosis of dementia often brings. With our help, seniors can feel safer and more comfortable at home and continue enjoying freedom and autonomy, and families can rest easy knowing their loved ones are being cared for by trusted professionals.
At Portland Home Care Assistance, our dementia care plans can be customized to meet the exact needs of the client. We empower seniors to maintain their highest level of independence while also providing valuable assistance and supervision. Our dedicated and expertly trained dementia caregivers can assist with a multitude of tasks, including:
All of our dementia caregivers are also trained in our proprietary Cognitive Therapeutics Method, which has been shown to enhance mental acuity, increase socialization, and delay the progression of dementia.
As seniors transition into the later stages of dementia, their care needs often change. Many require a higher level of assistance and supervision to allow them to continue living at home. To ensure care is always appropriate, Greater Portland Home Care Assistance assigns a Care Manager to every client. This trusted individual works with the family to develop and maintain a current care plan, monitor services, and remain on call to assist with emergencies. Moving from part-time to live-in or overnight assistance is simplified with the help of our competent Care Managers. This reduces stress for the family and makes it easier for them to continue supporting the senior’s goal of aging in place.
