Alzheimer’s Care in Jacksonville, FL
Comfort Keepers offers Alzheimer’s Care in the home for seniors in Jacksonville, FL
Come visit us at the Walk To End Alzheimer's this year!
If you cannot imagine putting your loved one in a nursing home despite their recent diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, you will be happy to know there is another alternative. This diagnosis is no longer an automatic move to assisted living or special Alzheimer’s care facilities. Comfort Keepers of Jacksonville, FL has assembled a special team of caregivers and technology to make it possible for your loved one to stay in the comfort of their own home.
Our Caregivers Are Specially Trained
We start with caregivers that have been trained specifically with working with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Caregivers are given a thorough education on the challenges that come with these conditions, so they can calmly and professionally assess and understand what is happening with their clients. They are then taught techniques for working with seniors that may become agitated, confused, or anxious. These techniques are designed to help calm seniors as well as keep them distracted with activities that will keep them moving and help them remain happy and safe.
Technology Can Help Fill in the Gaps
Alzheimer’s care at home is one of the most difficult plans to implement, simply because they do require a lot of supervision as the disease advances. Technology is available now, that can compliment what caregivers do, bridge the gap that exists when your loved ones are alone, and make it possible for seniors to continue to age in place. Pressure sensors, motion detectors, automatic locking doors and windows, and security systems can help prevent wandering and alert the appropriate people if there is an accident among other things.
We Work with You to Devise a Program
We want you to feel safe and comfortable with the decision to allow your loved one to remain in their own home. To this end our Comfort Keepers consultant will sit down with you and your loved one and devise a program that will allow your loved ones to maintain as much of their independence as possible while ensuring their safety, health, and happiness.
