Dementia home care is a specialized memory care service offering in home support for those with varying stages of dementia. The goal is to help those dealing with dementia maintain a high quality of life and allow them to remain as independent as possible. It is also designed to provide family caregivers with much needed respite, as looking out for loved ones with late stage dementia can turn into a full time job.
Dementia Home Care Services
At Nova Home Care & Staffing we fully understand the challenges that come with caring for those with dementia. With other types of senior care, physical limitations are most of what an in home caregiver will help with. However, with dementia patients, mental limitations are a major aspect and it comes with its own risks. So what are some of the specific services that we focus on with dementia care? Here are some of the major ones we provide on a regular basis:
- Preparation of healthy meals
- Wandering prevention
- Walking assistance
- Transportation (therapies, doctors appointments, etc.)
- Basic housekeeping and chores (laundry, cleaning dishes, vacuuming)
- Medication monitoring
- Bathing, dressing, and basic hygiene
Not all clients will require all of these services, but they are all available should they be required. The team at Nova Home Care & Staffing is made up of certified home health aides and skilled nurses that are trained and experienced in dealing with clients who suffer from dementia. No matter what stage of dementia your loved one is dealing with, we are equipped to provide the proper level of care.
Home Much Do Dementia Home Care Services Cost?
The cost of dementia care services will ultimately depend on a number of factors. How many hours will the caregiver need to be available? What specific services are being provided during the home care period? Patients that require more specialized and focused care will have a higher cost associated with the time they are spending with a client. Skilled nurses, for example, can provide medical care that cannot be provided by a home health aide which makes their hourly rates higher.
Each client that we work with at Nova Home Care has a unique situation. Everyone has specific needs and medical requirements. Some services may be covered by insurance, veterans benefits, etc. To find out how much dementia home care services will cost for a specific case, reach out to Nova today to discuss your needs.
