Dementia Care at Home: Keep Loved Ones in Familiar Surroundings

By Doris Kasold, 9:46 am on

If you have a loved one suffering from a memory-altering condition, you know that even the smallest things like having a photograph on hand or a favorite blanket can keep them comfortable. Instead of sending your aging family member to a facility where their surroundings are completely foreign and uncomfortable, dementia care at home provides them the opportunity to remain in their comfort zone in Tampa.

Dementia Care at Home with 24/7 Caregivers

You don’t need studies and scientific research to know that comfort is most easily found in familiar settings. For those suffering from memory loss, every small trace of the past can be a great source of consolation. There is no question that remaining in their house would be the best option for your elderly mother or father, but how will they take care of themselves? Will they be safe?

With the help of a certified, trained, and dedicated caregiver, dementia care at home in Tampa is the best of both worlds. You can rest assured knowing that your loved one is receiving the care and attention that they need, while also allowing them to remain comfortable in their house.

Home Care Assistance Tampa Bay

If you are at all concerned about the quality of caregivers at an agency, we can assure you that Home Care Assistance Tampa Bay’s aides are of the highest caliber. We run extensive background checks where we check for any red flags in an applicant’s past. After passing the background check, we conduct thorough interviews (often with multiple rounds) where we examine personality, experience, behavior, and more. Each caregiver undergoes an ethics examination where their integrity and honesty is evaluated. Only after making it to this point will a candidate enter the Home Care Assistance University, where they go through lengthy training before ever stepping foot into a client’s residence.

In training, caregivers are shown how to help make dementia care at home as effective as possible. Aides help with:

  • Personal hygiene
  • Cleaning
  • Bathing
  • Cooking
  • Shopping
  • Transportation
  • Moral support
  • Exercises of the mind and body
  • And more!

We pride ourselves on the extensive services we offer, and it is our goal to make dementia care at home in Tampa the best it can be. For more information about out services, or to schedule a meeting with a care manager today, give us a call at 727-330-7862.
