When an aging parent or loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia, family often steps in to provide care. However, even in the earliest stages of the disease, helping a loved one manage symptoms and maintain a sense of normalcy can be challenging and stressful for the inexperienced caregiver. When care necessitates an expanded support system and professional help, Tampa Bay families turn to Home Care Assistance. Our specialized care for seniors with Alzheimer’s is delivered in the comfort of home and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
At Home Care Assistance of Tampa Bay, we are committed to providing the highest level of quality Alzheimer’s care. We hire only the most competent, reliable caregivers and give clients the opportunity to choose their caregiver from a list of those that have been carefully matched to their needs and personality. Once matched, it is our goal to keep caregivers with their clients in order to ensure consistency of care. This can be especially beneficial in preventing over stimulation and agitation for Alzheimer’s patients, and can help in creating a meaningful and trustworthy relationship between your loved one and their caregiver.
Remaining up to date on the latest advances in Alzheimer’s is an essential part of the care we provide, and each of our caregivers receives ongoing training to ensure this. Our employees learn techniques for how to help a senior avoid agitation, simplify daily tasks and routines, encourage safe physical and mental exercises and divert attention away from situations that cause anxiety. Each caregiver is also educated in our exclusive in-home program, the Cognitive Therapeutics Method, which utilizes more than 300 activities and interventions to help slow the progression of the disease.
Even when families understand that professional Alzheimer’s care is necessary, hiring and managing a caregiver can be complicated and stressful. Home Care Assistance of Tampa Bay simplifies this process for our clients and their families. Our employees are meticulously screened, background checked and verified as legal employees in the United States, and we never use contract workers. We bond and insure every caregiver to protect seniors, and we manage our employees’ payroll, taxes, workman’s compensation and benefits.
