Specialized Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Available in Kent, WA
Comfort Keepers provides in-home dementia care for seniors with advanced needs
If your loved one is in need of specialized in-home senior care, Comfort Keepers caregivers can help them continue to live independently. No matter what challenges your loved one may be facing, our professional caregivers are available to provide dementia care, Alzheimer's care or any other specialized care they need.
It is an honorable gesture to become a primary caregiver for your loved one. However, with old age come complex medical situations and your loved one's needs may simply become too much for you to handle. At the same time, even if you do have the time and energy to provide your loved one with care, they may simply need skilled care you are not qualified to provide. We call this specialized care and dementia care is one of the most common.
In the earlier stages of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, many family members believe they will be able to look after their loved one on their own. However, dementia and Alzheimer's disease are degenerative diseases, which means they progress over time and are not curable. In the middle stages of the disease, older adults begin experiencing symptoms like aggression, confusion and disorientation that are not only difficult for loved ones to watch day in and day out, they require professional dementia care in order to keep your loved one safe and comfortable.
Specialized care also encompasses assistance with chronic conditions such as diabetes. Comfort Keepers can also provide private duty nursing for conditions such as Parkinson’s disease. Our private duty nurses can provide your loved one with regular check-ups of blood pressure and vital functions, and assist them with medication management, wound treatment, bandaging and ostomy care, administrating tube feeding, and catheter management.
In addition to dementia care and the other specialized services we provide above, our caregivers are trained in end of life care. This sort of specialized senior care is for older adults who have received a terminal diagnosis and are in the final stages of their life. It focuses on keeping your loved one comfortable and helping them get their affairs in order.
