The aging population in Philadelphia and the United States has brought Alzheimer’s and dementia to the forefront. According to the National Institute on Aging, more than 6 million Americans over the age of 65 have Alzheimer’s(1), with more people having dementia that is caused by other diseases. Within the next decade, over fifty million Americans will reach the age benchmark of 65-years-old. The lack of senior citizen socialization due to the ongoing pandemic is making the country’s Alzheimer’s and dementia epidemic that much worse. Help is available through our Philadelphia home care service for seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Alzheimer’s Care for Your Loved One
Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease that affects memory and so much more. As the disease progresses, your loved one may experience a loss of initiative, poor judgment, confusion, wandering, and the inability to do everyday tasks. Alzheimer’s care is demanding of time, energy, and patience. You want what is best for your loved one, and you do not have to carry that responsibility alone. Aurora is a home care agency providing Bucks County families with Alzheimer’s support and services.
Dementia Care Tailored to Your Loved One’s Needs
You should not have to shoulder the entirety of the burden that is senior citizen dementia. If your spouse, parent, grandparent, or other relative displays signs of dementia, don’t be afraid to ask for help from our Philadelphia dementia care specialists. Our team is staffed by Certified Dementia Practitioners who consult with local families about coordinating the optimal care for loved ones saddled by dementia.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Home Health Care
in Philadelphia and Surrounding Cities
Our services include memory screenings, classes specific to Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, family education to help deal with a loved one’s dementia, and plenty more. Our Certified Dementia Practitioners are also Support Group Facilitators, meaning we host, conduct, and educate certified support groups specifically designed with Alzheimer’s and dementia patients in mind.
Care Planning with Your Loved One in Mind
No two Alzheimer’s and dementia patients are the same. The dementia care provided to one patient should not be replicated from the care provided to another patient. Our local Philadelphia seniors struggling with dementia or severe Alzheimer’s have unique needs based on their medical history and lifestyle. Instead of providing one-size-fits-all Alzheimer’s and dementia care and applying it to every single patient in the greater Philadelphia area, we tailor care specifically to the needs of your loved one.
Our Certified Dementia Practitioners take the time necessary to design a plan that works best for your loved one as well as your family. We educate local Philadelphia families about the importance of custom-planned Alzheimer’s and dementia care, create the safest possible living spaces inside of local homes, and serve as an invaluable resource moving forward.
If you are struggling to provide your family member with care or find it difficult to cope with this challenge, don’t go it alone. Our caring Philadelphia team teaches coping skills that will help you retain your peace of mind and avoid depression while living with a loved one struggling with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
As an example, Shea Neumann CDP, CDPSGF, has helped locals throughout the greater Philadelphia area learn about the best ways to help a family member struggling with Alzheimer’s and strategically provide care to improve that individual’s quality of life. Shea and our other Certified Dementia Practitioners participate in ongoing education to remain abreast of the latest dementia research, improve skill development, and make life easier for Alzheimer’s patients as well as their loved ones.
