The word dementia is a general term that is used to describe a decline in mental ability which is enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. Dementia is caused after brain cells are damaged by diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease or stroke. When brain cells are not unable to communicate properly, a person’s feelings, behaviours, and even the ability to think is affected.
Because dementia affects the daily life of a person, people suffering from dementia may have difficulties with short term memory, focusing and paying attention, and communicating with others. Because dementia has an effect on almost every aspect of a person’s life, the caregiver in charge of taking care of them needs specialized training. Mavencare has care providers who specialize in caring for people with dementia in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Our caregivers assist with providing companionship (a core necessity for the elderly), supervising recreational exercises, and ensuring a safe environment for the care recipients. Our caregivers are experienced with managing behavioral changes and providing a consistent routine to make sure the client is at ease. Many of our caregivers also have experience with the Montessori Methods for Dementia.
When a person with dementia finds out their mental abilities are declining, they begin to feel vulnerable and in need of constant reassurance and support from their friends and family. In order to help the person retain their sense of identity and feeling of self worth, the people close to them need to do everything they can to help. Our compassionate and qualified caregivers understand this and are there to maintain your loved one’s dignity and independence while providing the assistance they need.
Our caregivers can provide:
Our caregivers in Toronto provide a variety of services aimed at making the lives of people living with dementia easier such as meal preparation, grooming, medication reminders, light housekeeping and companion care. Apart from helping with basic activities of daily living, our caregivers are also available to accompany your loved one to doctor’s appointments, shoppings, and any other events your loved ones might be interested in.
Some families members may decide to take care of their loved one with dementia themselves. Caregiving, whether it is for an aging senior or someone with dementia, can take a toll on the caregiver. Our dementia caregivers can help alleviate that stress by providing respite or supplemental care for family caregivers and ensure the client is comfortable and relaxed in their own home.
All clients also get access to our home monitoring application. You can sign up to receive photo and video updates. Whether you are in Toronto or somewhere else, you are always connected to your loved one.
