Overview

There are various types of in-home care services offered for a person with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), such as –
Companion services. Help is provided with visiting, supervision, and recreational activities.
Homemaker services. Help for activities at home such as shopping, meal preparation, and housekeeping are provided.
Personal care services. Help is provided for bathing, eating, exercising, dressing, toileting, and other such daily personal care requirements.
Skilled care. Help with medical needs such as wound care, physical therapy, injections, and mental health therapy sessions for the patient and the family to help manage symptoms, reduce distress, and make behavioural and lifestyle adjustments for the patient to make daily life tasks manageable are provided.
Home Care Services often cater to the needs of Alzheimer’s patient according to the severity of their disease’s stage. In the early stages of the disease, the emotional and daily support required that home care services could provide could include help in keeping appointments, remembering to take medications, and encouraging participation in activities that slow the progression of the disease. In middle stages, the help required and thus provided could include help with household chores, grooming and eating. In late stages, providing comfort becomes the focus. Although communication skills may have deteriorated, the senses remain intact, so the care provided could include playing their favourite music, cooking their favourite food, giving hand massages as well as other actions that provide sensory stimulation.

How effective are Home Care Services for Alzheimer’s?

Home care services are effective in reducing caregivers’ burden and burnout for the Alzheimer’s patient’s caregivers, and also for helping the patient manage their symptoms and daily life tasks in their familiar environment.

What are the benefits of Alzheimer’s Home Care Services?

Home Care Services ensure regular appointments with physicians, psychiatrists, physiotherapists, psychologists and family therapists that help reduce the rate of patient’s cognitive decline, manage symptoms of the disease, find new ways to cope with their inability to do tasks, train family members regarding how to communicate with the patient as their disease progresses, psycho-educate the family about the nature of the disease, and provide therapeutic support in order to deal with all the challenges faced by the family.

How many numbers of visits are required?

Since Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease, no number of visits will eventually ‘improve’ the condition. Moreover, visits for long-term is recommended in order to cater to the needs of the Alzheimer’s patient as well as reduce the care-giving burden on the family members so members can use their time to spend it with their loved one with the disease.
