Has your aging loved one been diagnosed with dementia? At Home Care Assistance of Calgary, we understand that caring for someone with this degenerative disease can be difficult for a single family member to take on alone. By nature, dementia symptoms are unpredictable and constantly evolving, making personalized, continuous, and comprehensive care a necessity to ensure safety and peace of mind. If you’re unable to be with your aging parent on a 24/7 basis or you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed with the responsibilities of being a family caregiver, turn to Home Care Assistance of Calgary for an individualized in-home dementia care plan. Our dementia caregivers are available on an hourly or 24/7 basis, depending on the needs of your aging loved one and your family.
Home Care Assistance care services include, at no extra charge, our proprietary Cognitive Therapeutics Program TM, especially beneficial to Alzheimer’s and dementia sufferers. This program promotes mental acuity and staves off cognitive decline through specifically designed games and activities played one-on-one with our trained caregiver.
Our care team is trained in the Best Friends™ approach to Dementia Care, a well-recognized, internationally acclaimed philosophy of care, as presented in the Alzheimer Society of Calgary workshops.
Best Friends™ is grounded in the understanding that relationships are critically important in dementia care and require the essential elements of friendship: respect, empathy, support, trust, and humour.
We are also a proudly certified Music and Memory organization which is an innovative approach to introducing music in seniors’ lives to reduce anxiety, alleviate pain and enhance cognitive functions.
A 24/7 live-in dementia caregiver can prove to be an invaluable resource to families who are not able to provide around-the-clock care for the loved one, despite their desire to. Our Calgary dementia care specialists are available to provide live-in care so that you are able to rest assured knowing your aging parent or spouse of being taken care of while you are at work, with your family or fulfilling other obligations. Not only can one of our dementia caregivers provide genuine companionship but they can also help with daily tasks such as cooking, cleaning, grooming and setting medication reminders.
Our dementia caregivers are the most sought after in the senior care field. We only hire 1 out of every 25 applicants because our employment standards are set very high. And for additional peace of mind and security, all of our caregivers are insured, licensed and bonded so that your family isn’t held liable in case of injury.
We never require you to commit to a long-term contract because we know that your loved one’s care needs can change at any moment. Whether you or your loved one desires constant care, hourly respite care, or last minute emergency care services, Home Care Assistance of Calgary can help.
