Alzheimer’s Care Helps Knoxville Seniors Age in Place
When a parent or grandparent is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, there are many vital decisions to make. Perhaps one of the most important of these decisions is how to manage his or her increasing care needs. Home Care Assistance of Knoxville, TN, understands this dilemma and knows how to help. We offer professional in-home Alzheimer’s care that makes it possible for seniors to remain safely and comfortably at home while receiving the support and assistance they need. Our team includes some of the most respected memory care experts in the industry who have the knowledge and skills to meet the ever-changing needs of seniors with Alzheimer’s.
Remaining at home after a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s offers many benefits for the elderly, including:
• Living in a familiar setting
• Making it easier for friends and family to visit and offer support
• Receiving one-on-one assistance
• Maintaining preferred routines and schedules
• Reducing exposure to illnesses that are often prevalent in assisted living facilities
• Relieving stress for the entire family
Our Alzheimer’s Caregivers Must Meet a High Standard
Allowing a new person to enter the home of a senior with Alzheimer’s is not an easy decision. Safety is always a consideration. Seniors and their family members must also feel confident about the level of care provided. Knoxville Home Care Assistance knows how important this decision is. All of our Alzheimer’s caregivers undergo rigorous screenings and interviews before being hired, and they are bonded and insured to provide additional protection to the seniors we serve. We also offer a complimentary matching service, which fosters bonding and encourages our caregivers to build meaningful relationships with their clients.
Extensive Training in Memory Care Methods
To keep our caregivers abreast of the latest discoveries in Alzheimer’s research, Home Care Assistance Knoxville provides classes through our exclusive Home Care Assistance University. Here, our Alzheimer’s caregivers participate in training on a variety of topics, including the Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM). This innovative method stimulates the brain through healthy games and activities. At no additional charge, CTM can be implemented into any Alzheimer’s care plan for our clients, and it often slows the progression of Alzheimer’s and promotes longevity.
