Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
Click here to enlarge text
As many as 5.2 million people in the United States are living with Alzheimer’s, while the number of people with dementia or Alzheimer’s increases every year. The initial symptoms may be as minor as forgetting names or recent events, but as the disease progresses, the Alzheimer’s patient may wander, become anxious, and is gradually unable to care for him or herself.

At HOME SWEET HOME CARE, our special Alzheimer’s division offers quality Alzheimer’s Care. We are dedicated to bringing quality care for you or your loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia. Our compassionate caregivers are specially trained to help relieve your burden with dignity and respect. Every case is supervised by an in-house RN to assure quality care.
Quality Alzheimer’s Care, a division of Home Sweet Home Care, is there for you.

Our specially trained caregivers will:
  • Provide mind stimulating activities
  • Manage changing behaviors
  • Supervise medication and drug intake
  • Encourage social interaction
  • 10 warning signs of Alzheimer's:
    1. Memory loss. Forgetting recently learned information is one of the most common early signs of dementia. A person begins to forget more often and is unable to recall the information later. As Alzheimer's advances the loss of memory becomes more intense and complex where sufferers can forget their own name or fail to recognize loved ones.

    2. Difficulty performing familiar tasks. People with dementia often find it hard to plan or complete everyday tasks. Individuals may lose track of the steps involved in preparing a meal, placing a telephone call, or playing a game.

    3. Problems with language. People with Alzheimer’s disease often forget simple words or substitute unusual words, making their speech or writing hard to understand. They may be unable to find the toothbrush, for example, and instead ask for "that thing for my mouth.”

    4. Disorientation to time and place. People with Alzheimer’s disease can become lost in their own neighborhood, forget where they are and how they got there, and not know how to get back home.

    5. Poor or decreased judgment. Those with Alzheimer’s may dress inappropriately, wearing several layers on a warm day or little clothing in the cold. They may show poor judgment, like giving away large sums of money to telemarketers.

    6. Problems with abstract thinking. Someone with Alzheimer’s disease may have unusual difficulty performing complex mental tasks, like forgetting what numbers are for and how they should be used.

    7. Misplacing things. A person with Alzheimer’s disease may put things in unusual places: an iron in the freezer or a wristwatch in the sugar bowl.

    8. Changes in mood or behavior. Someone with Alzheimer’s disease may show rapid mood swings – from calm to tears to anger – for no apparent reason.

    9. Changes in personality. The personalities of people with dementia can change dramatically. They may become extremely confused, suspicious, fearful or dependent on a family member.

    10. Loss of initiative. A person with Alzheimer’s disease may become very passive, sitting in front of the TV for hours, sleeping more than usual, or not wanting to do usual activities. (Source: OurAlzheimer’s.com)
