Alzheimer's disease is the most common illness in a category known as dementia. It can come-on suddenly or progress slowly over several years. People with Alzheimer's become forgetful, cannot form new memories or remember current information. Eventually they lose the ability to reason and make decisions.
At Abby Senior Care we know the challenges and heartbreak a family experiences when a loved one begins to have dementia symptoms. Their behavior and personality may change in unexpected and alarming ways. Extra companion care and attention with personal care are needed as Alzheimer's and other dementia diseases progress.
Our caregivers are trained to assist using specialized dementia care materials created by the Alzheimer's Association and the Byrd Institute at the University of South Florida; a leader in Alzheimer's and dementia research. We are also founding members of the Alzheimer's Early Detection Alliance (AEDA) and are committed to supporting families struggling with Alzheimer's home care. Abby Senior care is also certified as one of the "Leaders in Dementia Care" by the Alzheimer's Association.
Abby Senior Care is the only agency in Colorado using using a psychological test called the Caregiver Quality Assessment, administered by a third party industry leader named Leading Home Care. This tool is comprehensive in measuring compassion, conscientiousness, honesty, patience, and hostility. We've found these traits to be especially important for Alzheimer's caregivers.
Professional non-medical home care is important to maintaining a healthy balance for the person living with Alzheimer's and those who love and care for them.
