Living far away from your senior mom is tough, but it’s even tougher if she’s been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. If you’re worried about your mom living alone, you should consider Alzheimer’s home care. Alzheimer’s care is an alternative to institutionalized care. It can help your mom live safely and comfortably at home if you can’t be there to take care of her.

There is no “one size fits all” solution for taking care of a senior parent with Alzheimer’s. But Alzheimer’s home care is the closest thing to it. That’s because the assistance that your mom gets with Alzheimer’s home care can change as her needs change. She may not need a lot of help right now, but when she does, there will be a care provider she trusts to give her more help.

The caregivers who provide Alzheimer’s home care have additional training and skills so that they can communicate more effectively with seniors who have Alzheimer’s. They can also help your mom retain her cognitive skills as long as possible.

Some of the things that Alzheimer’s home care can do for your mom are:

 

Memory Support

The care providers that provide Alzheimer’s home care have education and training in games and therapies that can help your mom hold onto her cognitive skills longer. They can work with your mom to maintain her memory and build muscle movement memory to help her in the future.

 

Safety and Supervision

Alzheimer’s home care providers ensure your mom’s safety at home by removing tripping hazards, installing locks on doors and windows, and supervising activities to prevent accidents or wandering. They can also ensure she doesn’t leave the faucet on, turn the stove on, or do anything else that could be a hazard or danger.

 

Emotional Support

Living with Alzheimer’s is hard. Your mom is going through a lot of emotional, physical, and mental changes. Care providers offer emotional support and companionship to your mom, helping her feel understood, valued, and connected. They also provide reassurance and comfort during moments of confusion or distress.

 

Hobbies That Provide Cognitive Stimulation

Maintaining engagement in meaningful activities can enhance your mom’s quality of life and overall well-being. Alzheimer’s home care providers plan and facilitate activities tailored to her interests and abilities, such as arts and crafts, music therapy, gentle exercise, or gardening, to promote a sense of purpose and enjoyment.

 

Help Getting To Medical Appointments

An Alzheimer’s home care provider can take your mom to medical appointments and ensure that she gets the care she needs. As the disease progresses, your mom may be scared of taking public transportation or using taxis or rideshares. Having a care provider she knows and trusts to take her where she needs to go will make her a lot more comfortable.

A care provider can stay with your mom at her appointments to make sure she gets to the right office, gets checked in, and isn’t confused or scared during the appointment. If you live far away, Alzheimer’s home care can be there for her when you can’t be.
