November is National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. Throughout the month, a light will be shone more pointedly at this disease to raise awareness for those living with Alzheimer’s in hopes that one day it will be even better understood, identified and treated. Here at Aqua Home Care, we would like to help raise awareness in honor of those who suffer from this disease.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, affecting the areas of the brain responsible for thought-processing, behavior and memory along with the neuron’s ability to carry messages to different parts of the brain. One of the earliest signs of this disease is difficulty retaining new information. With Alzheimer’s being a progressive disease, ability to recall information, complete daily tasks, and communicate effectively is something that deteriorates and worsens over time. Since Alzheimer’s has such a profound impact on brain function, the daily lives of those affected are impacted greatly, making independent living increasingly difficult.
Aqua Home Care refers trusted caregivers to those needing assistance with daily tasks and routines due to injury, illness, various health issues or age. We also find care for those living with Alzheimer’s. With our knowledgeable and experienced team, we carefully match each individual with a caregiver best suited to meet their needs. Whether you need someone to be there part-time, full-time or around the clock throughout the day and night, a reliable caregiver can accommodate your schedule. With compassion and professionalism, your caregiver can help by providing quality in-home care services that includes:
- Bathing and grooming
- Medication reminders
- Food preparation and eating
- Dressing and undressing
- Hygienic care
- Appointment reminders
- Recording information for a later time
- Communicating with families regarding their loved one’s daily activities and abilities
- Providing companionship
- And more
