Watching a loved one suffer from dementia and/or Alzheimer’s disease can have a tremendous impact on one’s life. Having an experienced home care worker to assist with everyday tasks can greatly lighten the burden that families face, offering them valuable support and providing much-needed periods of respite. After choosing an in-home care specialist, a customized care package specially designed for a loved one will ensure that the person’s needs are addressed and catered to efficiently and compassionately. The care worker acts not only as a nurse and support system for the family: he/she also becomes a cherished and reliable companion to the patient. Home health care allows a certified, experience professional to track medication, assist with grooming, perform physical therapy, create a safe home environment, provide transport, and serve the family or individual’s unique needs. Accepting help and allowing someone to assist your loved one and family during times of need may be difficult at first, but finding the right home health care assistant will greatly improve both the patient’s and the family’s quality of life.
