Why Your Loved One Should Have Dementia Care or Alzheimer's Care in Rockford, IL
Providing care for someone with a disease that robs them of their ability to be independent and takes their memories is a challenge. As anyone who has had a loved one with one of these diseases can tell you- it is hard to see the one you love fade in this way. Using an outside care provider, like Comfort Keepers, means that you can focus less on the day to day decline, and spend more time focusing on the time you and your loved one have together.
We know that dementia and Alzheimer's are both a challenging diagnosis to receive. When a loved one finds out they are affected by either of these diseases it is best to start care as soon as possible so a caregiver can learn how your loved one prefers things to be done.
If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's and need care contact Comfort Keepers to set up a care consultation today.
What is Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Care?
In general, dementia is a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks, serious enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Our services help people with these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths, while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to perform.Contact Us
