Alzheimer’s & Dementia Specialized Caregivers
ABC’s caregivers that specialize in Alzheimer’s and Dementia are certified Home Health Aides that have completed the extensive Alzheimer’s Association Habilitation training curriculum. This enables them to provide better care to our clients with this debilitating disease.
Our trained caregivers working with Alzheimer’s and Dementia clients have a clear understanding of what the disease is and the impact on a person's life. This knowledge allows our care giving team to better communicate with the client and also work together with the family to ensure the environment is best suited to the client’s needs.
Our trained team understands the most effective ways to communicate with clients with this disease. Alzheimer’s disease can have a negative impact a person’s self esteem which, if left unchecked, may lead them to withdraw from communicating with family and friends. Our trained caregivers work with the client to ensure they’re actively engaged and involved.
At ABC Home Healthcare, our nursing team supervises the Alzheimer’s and Dementia specialized caregivers, who keep records of the services they perform and record patients' condition and progress. They report changes in patients' conditions to the supervisor or case manager who will then update the plan of care to meet the changing needs.
