Person-Centered Alzheimer’s & Dementia Home Care

  • Individualized care: Caregivers get to know the person’s life history, interests, and routines to create a personalized care plan that meets their unique needs and preferences.
  • Respect for dignity and independence: The approach emphasizes treating individuals with respect and preserving their independence to the greatest extent possible, even as the disease progresses.
  • Creating a familiar and safe environment: Making the living space comfortable and familiar can help reduce confusion and anxiety for the person with dementia.
  • Communication and validation: Caregivers use effective communication techniques to engage with the individual, validate their emotions, and provide reassurance.
  • Flexibility and adaptability: As dementia symptoms change, caregivers remain flexible and adapt their approach to address new challenges and evolving needs.
  • Engagement in meaningful activities: Encouraging participation in activities that are meaningful and enjoyable for the individual can enhance their quality of life.
