What is Included in Memory Care at Home?

To meet the specific needs and challenges associated with each type of dementia, memory care at home with Home Care Partners provides support and assistance for seniors to help them maintain their independence and quality of life.

Types of Dementia

Dementia is the general term for when a person’s brain functions like thinking, memory, and reasoning worsen enough to impact daily life.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common dementia, making up 60-80% of cases. It involves losing memories, getting confused, and having trouble solving problems and with language.

Another type is Lewy body dementia. This dementia is caused by abnormal protein build-ups in the brain. Symptoms can include seeing things that are not there, attention span going up and down, and movement issues.

Frontotemporal dementia mainly hits the frontal and temporal parts of the brain. This can lead to changes in one’s behavior, personality, and speech.

Vascular dementia relates to blood flow problems in the brain from damaged or blocked vessels. Without enough blood and oxygen, brain cells die. Symptoms may include decreased thinking skills, confusion, trouble planning, and difficulty focusing. Memory and learning new things are challenging.

If your loved one has dementia, it’s helpful to understand the specific needs and challenges of each type. Personal care and companion services can support those with dementia. This helps them stay independent and have a better quality of life.

Case Study - Vascular Dementia

David, a young man in his early 60s, was struck by a stroke and later diagnosed with vascular dementia. Coping with the challenges of daily life became increasingly difficult for him and his family, and they recognized that he could no longer live independently. To ensure his safety and well-being, David moved to Lincoln where his son, Blake, could provide the care and support he needed.

The Challenge

Blake made every effort to provide the best possible care for his father while managing his job, yet he often felt overwhelmed by the challenge of finding the right balance between his career and caregiving responsibilities. After spending some time in a facility that failed to meet their expectations, David and Blake came to a realization: it was in David’s best interest to remain in his home and begin his Home Care journey.

Our Solution

At Home Care Partners, we’re thrilled to have teamed up with Blake to offer exceptional memory care support services to David. We understand the significance of physical activity for individuals in David’s condition, which is why our Caregivers prioritize keeping him active and engaged throughout the day.

Our partnership with Blake has enabled our care team to provide David with the highest level of care possible while ensuring his comfort at all times. We’re continuously strengthening our relationship by keeping up-to-date with information from David’s photos and journals.

​Our goal is to provide David with compassionate care that helps him maintain his quality of life and independence. We believe that our collaborative approach, combined with our team’s expertise and dedication, will ensure David’s wellbeing and happiness.

The Outcome

Home Care Partners has been dedicated to delivering exceptional services to David for the past three years. During this time, we have witnessed remarkable progress in his overall well-being. By working closely with him, we have successfully reduced his reliance on anxiety and behavior medications, enabling him to experience increased happiness and a sense of security.

Moreover, David has gained the ability to accomplish tasks independently—an extraordinary feat for someone facing memory challenges. This newfound independence is a direct result of the dedicated assistance and thoughtful organization provided by Home Care Partners.

We are incredibly proud to have played a role in David’s journey toward improved quality of life.

Our team is not only dedicated to offering exceptional care, but to be your support system. We believe in going above and beyond by not only providing reliable senior home care but also being a source of comfort and assistance for families. We understand the challenges you may encounter, and we are here to help.

Over the past 5 years, Home Care Partners has been fortunate enough to receive multiple awards in recognition of our commitment to excellence. We are proud to have been named a top 3 local business in the highly esteemed Lincoln’s Choice Awards for three years. 

How long can a senior with Alzheimer's disease remain in their own home?

A senior with Alzheimer’s disease can stay in their own home as long as it is safe. Family Caregivers want to give their loved one the familiar setting of home for as long as possible. Here are some things to think about when deciding how long this can work:

Progression of the disease: Alzheimer’s gets worse over time, and as it advances, the senior may need more care and help. It is important to check their symptoms and talk to healthcare providers regularly to evaluate their needs.

Safety: As the disease gets worse, safety becomes very important. Look at the home for possible dangers and make changes to ensure safety. This might mean adding grab bars, removing tripping hazards, and setting up a system to stop wandering.

Caregiver support: As a Caregiver, it is important to know your limits and get help when needed. Consider the physical, emotional, and financial impacts of caregiving and talk to Home Care Partners about respite care to avoid burnout.

Available resources: Learn what community resources are available like support groups, and respite care services. These can give extra help and improve care quality at home.

When is it Time to Start Home Care Services?

When a family member notices changes in a loved one’s memory and daily abilities, it may be time to consider starting home care services. Here are some signs that in-home memory care might be needed:

Memory Loss: If a loved one has frequent memory lapses or forgets important dates, appointments, or activities, it could mean they would benefit from memory care at home.

Difficulty with Daily Tasks: If a loved one struggles to complete everyday jobs like cooking, cleaning, or personal hygiene, in-home care can give the needed help to ensure safety and well-being.

Social Isolation: If a loved one pulls away from social activities or has trouble maintaining relationships, having a Caregiver to go with them to visits and events can help them stay involved and connected.

Household Management: If it seems like housekeeping, laundry, grocery shopping, and other home tasks are becoming too much for a loved one, in-home care services can provide support and make life easier.
