Connecticut In-Home Assistance Provides Expert Dementia Care in CT
Over 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia. This year, families will give more than 18 billion hours of care to their loved ones with dementia. The right kind of attention makes a significant difference in the quality of a dementia patient’s life.
At Connecticut In-Home Assistance, we have the training and resources to offer expert home care in CT that will help lighten the load of family members and ensure the well-being of recipients. Our dementia care services can provide support and many long-term benefits for people with dementia and their families.
We Train Our Caregivers to Give the Best Home Care for Dementia
The ideal standard of care for people with Alzheimer’s focuses on habilitation, not rehabilitation. Our in-house registered nurse is certified by the Alzheimer’s Association/MANH Chapter to train our caregivers in the “Caring for People with Alzheimer’s Disease” program. This program emphasizes the creation of a positive environment for individuals with Alzheimer’s to retain many of their existing abilities for as long as possible. We require that each of our caregivers providing dementia care in CT completes the in-house training before attending to clients, so you can trust our employees to be diligent and knowledgeable.
We Help Preserve Current Functioning
With our years of experience, we believe that the habilitation approach is the best way to care for people with dementia in CT. Unlike rehabilitation, which works to rebuild lost skills, habilitation focuses on meeting people where they are right now and maintaining the skills that already exist.
Habilitation shows a higher degree of success, with the following potential benefits:
Greater sense of confidence
Stronger relationships between patients and family members
Decreased reliance on certain types of medications
Positive, encouraging experiences for patients and loved ones
Living With Dementia Can Put Stress On People And Their Families
With home care for dementia from Connecticut In-Home Assistance, everyone can have the time and energy to enjoy life’s beautiful moments.
