|Memory Care - Alzheimer's Care|
When the trying time has come to seek help caring for your loved one with memory loss or other dementia related disorders, Benchmark Healthcare is a compassionate solution. Our safe, comfortable community is staffed with caring experts trained to care for the special needs of residents suffering from dementia related issues.
Caring for a victim of Alzheimer’s disease in the home is an all- consuming labor of love that can tax the strongest of family members. As the illness progresses to its later stages, the job of caretaking can simply become overwhelming to the patient’s loved ones, causing emotional distress and actually physical fatigue from dealing with the need for around the clock monitoring and supervision. It can literally become impossible for individuals or a dedicated group of family members and friends to properly care for an Alzheimer’s sufferer.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s important to understand that you are not a super-human, that you cannot be in all places at all times. People in the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s require more care and attention than can be reasonably expected from any single person or group of family members. It’s OK to realize that you, and your loved one, need help.
When the time has come for help in caring for your loved one with Alzheimer’s, Benchmark Healthcare and its family of caregivers is a compassionate alternative. Our communities are squeaky clean and comfortable, and fully staffed with experts specifically trained in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Our specialists are fully up to date on the most current practices for helping those afflicted with Alzheimer’s improve their ability to perform everyday functions and reduce problem behaviors. Special techniques like “memory cueing” use words and visual aids to rekindle or “cue” relevant memories like details about family or reminders to perform daily tasks. Every opportunity is used to elicit fond memories and to provide encouragement and guidance, always respectful of an individual’s view of reality. We realize that family members and loved ones also share in the struggles of Alzheimer’s sufferers, so we sponsor Alzheimer’s family support groups for those who need a compassionate, understanding resource for strength and encouragement. Choosing to seek help caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s is one of life’s toughest decisions. Benchmark Healthcare is a compassionate answer.
