Alzheimer’s Care – Providing Compassion for Your Loved Ones
Allow your loved ones to spend their final years in familiar and safe surroundings with our in-home Alzheimer’s Care services. According to a recent study, one in eight Americans over the age of 65 has some symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease, the most common form of dementia. Alzheimer’s can affect almost every aspect of a person’s life. Your loved one may have lived at the same place for 30 or more years, but forget where the bathroom is. They may have difficulty remembering what they’ve told you, where they’ve left things, and whether or not they’ve turned an appliance on (or off).
Often, family members are forced to provide unpaid care for parents or loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s. Currently, more than 15 million Americans provide some type of unpaid care to loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s. There is an alternative: in-home health care services. At Star Multi Care, we provide comprehensive home health care services to individuals facing the challenges that come with Alzheimer’s Disease or any other form of dementia. Our caregivers are all licensed and certified as RNs, LPNs, or Aides and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for care in your home, or regular visits to assisted living and nursing home facilities. We offer medical and non-medical assistance, helping clients with a wide range of needs, including the management of medication, light housekeeping, accompaniment to medical and other appointments, and assistance with personal care, such as bathing, dressing and shaving.
The medical services we provide to Alzheimer’s patients include:
- Management and administration of all medications, including diabetes, blood pressure, and other drugs
- Illness or pain management, including monitoring of blood sugar or blood pressure, dressing of wounds, cancer management, and post-stroke physical therapy
We also work in partnership with your attorneys, financial planners, long term care insurance agents, brokers, and other representatives to provide information and assistance as needed regarding your care.
