Our Registered Nurses have extensive experience supervising and case managing dementia care for clients with a range of dementias, and many of our PSW caregivers have specialized training in caring for those with dementia.
Alzheimer’s? Maybe not
Often family will assume that confusion and forgetfulness are a sign of Alzheimer’s disease.
While it is true that these symptoms may be caused by any of a number of different types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s, they may also be a result of an adverse reaction to medication, dehydration, depression or even a urinary tract infection.
It’s important to have a proper diagnosis so that the appropriate treatment can be provided. Our Registered Nurses can help ensure your parent has the tests they need.
The Registered Nurse assessment difference is real
Lisa’s assessment skills meant my mother got the right kind of care. It was a big relief to know that mom would be safe and well cared for in her own home.
~ Ms. Junkin, Client’s daughter
Registered Nurse case managed PSW care makes the difference (at no additional cost)
At Eldercare Home Health we will assign a Registered Nurse Case Manager to the care of your parent (at no additional cost).
A real, Ontario Registered, Registered Nurse (not a franchise owner, sales person or PSW) will assess your parent at no charge.
We understand the challenges you and your family face in caring for a parent with dementia. From medication compliance, wandering, nutrition and hydration, to behavioural changes, “sundowning“, toileting and personal hygiene issues.
We can help. We’ve been providing dementia care for seniors, including clients with Alzheimer’s, Lewy body and vascular dementia, for over 20 years. We understand medications and will liaise with your parent’s doctor, pharmacist and other members of the healthcare team on a professional level. We’ll also advocate for your parent.
Contact us today and learn more about how we can help reduce your, and your family’s stress by providing the dementia care your parent needs, and by helping to keep them safe.
