Improving the Quality of Life for Dementia Patients through In Home Dementia Care
Remaining in the home as long as possible can prolong the quality of life of seniors with dementia. Most seniors prefer to stay in the home as they continue to age. In home dementia care offered by Home Care Assistance, allows you to honor the wishes of your loved one suffering from dementia. Keeping them safe in familiar surroundings is key.
Moving a dementia patient into a nursing home or assisted living facility can disrupt their lives and weaken ties from family and friends. The transition is very difficult for dementia patients to comprehend and they often do not adjust well to the change. Our caregivers provide consistency of care, in the comfort of our client’s home, surrounded by a familiar environment. In home dementia care has been found to reduce the stress and confusion that comes with memory loss, making life easier for our clients.
The Cognitive Therapy Method
Home Care Assistance Fort Worth is excited to introduce The Cognitive Therapy Method . Cognitive Therapy is a program that encourages brain stimulation by engaging in cognitive activities. Carefully selected caregivers are trained in the Cognitive Therapy Method where they learn over 20 activities to engage in with the dementia sufferer in order to slow or delay the progression of the disease. This program is based on the latest scientific research performed by the National Institutes of Health on neuroplasticity and the brain’s ability to form new connections with the proper mental stimulation.
The Method focuses on five primary cognitive areas:
Executive Functioning – reasoning, problem solving, and judgment
Attention – the ability to focus without being easily distracted
Language – speech, comprehension, naming, reading and writing
Visual-Spatial Perception – the ability to accurately interpret the visual relationships between objects, people, and space
Memory – the ability to retain and retrieve information
To learn more about this exciting program, call our office at 817-349-7599 or visit the Cognitive Therapy Method website.
