Alzheimer's / Dementia

When Things Have Changed
She's not the same. Mom and dad used to love to spending afternoons together, maybe shopping at the mall or just sitting and chatting. Now dad is gone and she has the same conversation with you six times and asks why you don't take her shopping anymore-after you just returned home, as if the afternoon had never happened. She gets so upset when she can't find something, and even accuses you and others she has always loved and trusted for stealing her things. That's not like her at all. You're afraid to think what these worrying behaviors could mean for her health and safety, and for you as her son or daughter.

Alzheimer's disease or dementia is the diagnosis that can strike dread in the hearts of most family caregivers. If you're living it now, you know all too well. If you've just received the prognosis for your senior, you're likely scared and confused.

You Are Not Alone We Are Here To Help
You need to know that there is support for you and your loved one. The Helping Solution Senior Care network can help. Our Care Givers provide the highest quality of Alzheimer's care, changing the way people live with Alzheimer's or other dementias.

Trained Care Givers
Dr. Saroj Gupta developed a Geriatrics training program at Harvard and university of Maryland to train the Care Givers. Trained Helping Solution Care Givers bring the following skills and support to families of those with Alzheimer's disease or dementia:

  • Capturing Life's Journey - Gathering past stories and experiences helps the Care Giver give comfort and customized care; all the while honoring who the senior was earlier in life.
  • Techniques to Manage Behavior - Care Givers use techniques such as giving simple choices and redirecting, allowing the senior to remain calm and safe at home.
  • Encouraging Engagement - Engaging seniors throughout the day builds self-esteem, enhances physical strength and reduces behaviors that need to be managed. Using techniques and activities, Care Givers focus on the seniors' mind, body and soul.
  • Supporting the Family - Care Givers understand the struggles and challenges that accompany caring for a loved one. They are trained to work closely with the family and have open communication, which results in quality care for the senior.

Care Givers receive this training in addition to a multi-phased safety and caregiving education program, so you can rest assured your loved one is with a trusted, well-qualified professional.
