Quality of Life
Home is a place of comfort.
This can be especially true for a person with memory loss. Familiar surroundings can play an important part in managing Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. We understand that you want to do what is best for your loved one and, at Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County, we want to make that possible.
Individuals with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia need special care. Encouragement and assistance can help individuals cope with the challenges of dementia while enabling them to continue living at home. This can involve maintaining a regular routine to lessen confusion and frustration. Caregivers from Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County can also help in the following ways:
- Maintaining a safe environment
- Managing changing behaviors
- Providing nutritious meals
- Engaging in stimulating activities
- Offering social interaction
- Supervising daily activities
Perhaps most importantly, caregivers can provide assistance with enhancing and restoring the simple pleasures of life such as a walk in the park, a ride in the car, spending time in the garden or engaging in some other pleasurable activity.
