While science cannot predict how Alzheimer’s disease and dementia will affect each individual, research gives us guidelines for keeping clients healthier and safer while possibly slowing the progression of their disease.
Offering a little hope
Our experience has taught us that companionship, a healthy diet, hydration, proper medication reminders, exercise, and time spent reminiscing can help combat depression and many symptoms of the disease.
With either hourly care or around-the-clock care for even the most advanced stages of dementia, our caregivers maximize the mental, emotional, and physical health of our clients while offering support and respite for loved ones.
For family members of those suffering from all forms of dementia, the Alzheimer’s Association of Central Ohio offer excellent education programs, support groups, and informational brochures. Call them at 800-272-3900 or visit the organization’s web site: http://www.alz.org/centralohio/
