Dementia care experts
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.
Home care services that make a difference
You met with us in the hospital and then came to the team meeting. Before my wife was discharged you did an on site safety assessment of our home. Once she was home you provided consistent, professional care. She improved right away – within the first week! I don’t know of any other home care services company that does all that Eldercare Home Health does. We’re very happy.
