How Azurite Home Health Caregivers Can Help with Dementia Care

Our caregivers are screened for empathy, trained to help seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, and empowered to find ways to elevate the spirits of clients and their families.

Our caregivers get to know our clients on a personal level, learning about likes, dislikes and even past events in their life. This helps us integrate activities that simulate mental or physical activity. Our clients and caregivers develop a relationship, and often listen to music together from the senior’s favorite era, read an old favorite book or even do memory exercises like looking through family photos or discussing current events.

We can provide:

Individualized care plans that focus on physical and non-physical care needs and goals
Activities that bring joy, provide mental stimulation and encourage physical and emotional wellbeing. Designed to consider your loved one’s interests and capabilities, these activities are built into the plan of care to improve quality of life and physical health
Support for physician prescribed nutrition and exercise programs, companionship, respite care and other needs Referral to medical professionals, support groups and resources for family caregivers

Azurite Home Health can help you and your loved one work through these recommendations to create the best possible environment and care plan. Our caregivers are trained to provide Alzheimer’s and dementia care that supports opportunities for meaningful engagement, builds and nurtures authentic, caring relationships, and implements a care plan that evolves with the senior’s needs.

“Alzheimer’s is not about the past—the successes, the accolades, the accomplishments… Alzheimer’s is about the present and the struggle, the scrappy brawl, the fight to live with a disease. It’s being in the present, the relationships, the experiences, which is the core of life, the courage to live in the soul.”
