Soft Touch Home Care - St. LouisWhy Should We Consider Alzheimer Care?

Having a parent or loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or Dementia can be a difficult time for a family.  The important thing to remember is you are not alone.  Having concerns about their short-term and long-term Alzheimer’s care is a normal response and we can help.

Short-Term Alzheimer’s Care

Adults experiencing early stages of Dementia or Alzheimer’s are often capable to help themselves and manage to live independently.  Rightfully so, loved ones who are not able to easily check on their status, worry about their well-being but having the help of someone outside the family often eases tensions between family members.  Not only does it allow for the parent or adult to retain the control they want to have over their life but it can put their mind to ease – like that of loved ones – that someone is watching over them who is qualified to understand true concerns in their behavior or ability to care for themselves.  This insight can help a family gracefully step into a managed care plan that best suits their parent or loved one, based on their individual needs.

Some of the ways we can help with short-term Alzheimer’s/Dementia care include:

Long-Term Alzheimer’s Care

The long-term goal of all family members is normally the same – maintaining the best quality of life for their loved one.  Those with Alzheimer’s or Dementia need special care that addresses not only their mental health but their advancing physical and emotional needs.  The good news is that advancements in studying these diseases have created a greater focus on serving your loved ones who experience Alzheimer’s or Dementia.  Today, more nursing facilities have a greater focus on aging mental care however, understanding how to choose the right long-term care facility that best suits them can be overwhelming for many families.

Our Founder, Ms. Bonaparte, has spent a great deal of time in nursing facilities caring for loved ones.  She knows first-hand the emotional strain that it causes not only the aging loved one, but their families.  Having worked in these facilities, she also understands the administrative limitations that can cause concerns for your family.  What is important to know, is that you do not have to walk this path alone.

At Soft Touch Home Care we take pride in helping your family select the best long-term care for your loved ones.  We make sure that the services your loved one needs include providing necessary comfort and the best quality of life.  In addition to Hospice Care, we also offer in-home options for non-medical support through Companion Care or Personal Services performed by a medical professional.  We also offer support specific needs for Hospice Care patients and relief for the caregiver through Respite Care.
