Dementia is a difficult diagnosis. The progressive decline of brain function and memory retention are frustrating and challenging experiences for the senior afflicted, as well as for their loved ones. Mavencare understands that providing care for a senior with Alzheimer's or dementia is a demanding job, and we aim to ease some of the stress your family might be experiencing in the aftermath of one of these diagnoses by providing specialized caregivers who have extensive experience delivering care to those with dementia.
Our caregivers are trained to provide effective dementia care, and they have the experience to deliver this care with confidence. Even if you and your family intend to take on some of your aging loved one’s care, it can be extremely useful to have a qualified caregiver come into the home to offer advice and demonstrate caregiving techniques, such as the Montessori Method, which will improve your loved one’s quality of life.
The presence of a caregiver can bring your family peace of mind during a challenging time. Regardless of whether your senior relative’s diagnosis is new, or if their disease appears to be progressing, caregivers with expertise in Alzheimer’s and dementia care will provide stability, competence, and compassion.
Seniors will dementia often have difficulty performing tasks and engaging in social interaction as the disease progresses. They may experience feelings of confusion, anger, and grief as they struggle to maintain some semblance of their previous life and to retain memories and skills. A skilled caregiver can provide day-to-day personal care for your loved one, assisting them with challenging activities and reducing stress and confusion.
Respite care offers family members, or an existing caregiver, a temporary break from their duties caring for seniors with dementia. Caregiving duties can cause stress and burnout, and respite care allows existing caregivers to relax and recharge without needing to worry about their loved one or client. With Mavencare’s respite services, you’ll know that your aging loved one is receiving excellent care while you take a break to care for yourself, which will allow you (or your loved one’s existing caregiver) to continue providing the best possible care to your senior relative.
A major factor in Mavencare’s ability to provide exceptional home care to our clients is our expert knowledge base, which we use to determine a patient's care plan. All our caregivers are trained to establish routines with clients, figure out how best to engage your loved one to keep their brain active and alert, and use their skills to effectively manage behavioral changes.
Mavencare is a proud supporter of the use of the Montessori Method in caring for those with dementia. This treatment method seeks to give seniors with dementia an easy way to re-engage with memories and skills, which reduces frustration and confusion. The Montessori Method has been proven to help reduce progressive memory loss and to keep aging seniors mentally healthy by maintaining their points of connection to the world around them.
With our mobile app, you’ll have access to regular updates from your loved one’s caregiver. Daily updates will keep you informed so that you’re always aware of how your loved one is doing.
