Dementia Home Care - Support for Dementia Patients

Dementia Care – Providing Specialized Care for Patients Living with Dementia in New York.

Dementia Care and Support Services – Dementia is an umbrella term under which are many different diseases that are types of dementia. Dementia describes a wide range of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person’s ability to perform everyday activities. Alzheimer’s disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of cases.

At Crane Home Care, we specialize in providing care for dementia patients, as well as dedicated and trained dementia caregivers. We are familiar with the differences between Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias such as Parkinson’s disease, lewy body dementia or frontal temporal dementia.

What we teach our caregivers is that the most important thing to remember in dealing with any form of dementia is to be patient and recognize that what a person with dementia does or says that may be disturbing to family and friends is just part of the disease. All behaviors associated with dementia are not good or bad, they are just a reflection of the disease process and the demented person’s inability to communicate needs.

The goal in providing quality home care for dementia is to help the client maintain independence in as many areas as possible and provide them quality of life. Finding failure free activities and anticipating needs is critical. By matching caregivers specifically trained to understand Dementia Care, they can interact with clients and family member to increase peaceful and contented environments that ensure safety and security. Developing a plan of care with client and family input is key to that success.

Although there is no cure for Dementia, we offer a specialized program that helps our clients lead happier and more fulfilling lives. It provides tools for coping with daily stressors and games that foster feelings of success.
