Chronic Illness Care
As heartbreaking as the diagnosis of a chronic illness can be, it can be even more detrimental for your family to have to put your loved one in an assisted living facility. Luckily, with our services, this can be avoided. Even as cognitive functions and mobility fade, your loved one will be able to live in the comfort of their own home with the help of one of Alina’s Elder Care’s certified caregivers. Here are some examples of how we can assist in the care of a loved one suffering from the following conditions:
Since dementia is a symptom of Alzheimer’s, the benefits of our services will be similar no matter which one your loved one is dealing with. As dementia and Alzheimer’s progress, your loved one will begin having trouble performing basic tasks, such as feeding themselves, taking a bath, and going to the restroom. With our personal care service, one of our caregivers will be there to help your loved one with these basic necessities.
Another effect of dementia and Alzheimer’s is the loss of memory. Your loved one will not be able to recall what time their doctor’s appointments are or when they are supposed to take their medications. They will also experience phases of being aware and unaware of their surroundings and will have a hard time focusing their attention. With our companion service, you won’t have to worry about your loved one missing an important appointment or skipping a crucial dose of medication. Plus, the games, exercises, and other activities our caregivers can participate in will help stimulate your loved one’s mind.
When your loved one is dealing with dementia or Alzheimer’s, it can be very difficult to move around the house. However, they still deserve to enjoy a home-cooked meal and a clean living environment. With our homemaker service, your loved one will want for nothing as one of our caregivers step in to tend to the daily home duties.
Parkinson’s is a truly debilitating disease, with the most common symptom being a lack of control over movement, including tremors, stiff muscles, and loss of balance. Mealtime can prove especially difficult, which is where our personal care service comes in. Our attentive caregivers can help feed your loved one so that they can still enjoy their favorite foods.
When living with Parkinson’s, it is crucial that medications are taken on time; however, memory loss is often a symptom of the disease, which can make this simple task impossible. With our companion service, you can rest easy knowing that your loved one will always get their medicine on time.
