How Home Care Benefits Seniors with Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s is a debilitating disease that causes memory loss, weakens communication skills, and prohibits seniors from performing primary tasks. Caring for seniors at home can relieve both caregivers and seniors of any undue stress or anxiety by allowing seniors to remain in a familiar setting. Here are a few other ways home care benefits seniors with Alzheimer’s, presented by Prestige Home Care in Orlando.

Cost Savings

Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s can be expensive, draining savings accounts and creating a strain on finances. Seniors who remain at home witness significant financial savings compared to those placed in an assisted living facility because part-time or in-home care is typically less expensive. With in-home care, clients only pay for the amount of care they need. If you loved one is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s and requires minimal help throughout the week, the cost savings could be tremendous.

Personalized Care

The main advantage of home care for seniors with Alzheimer’s is the individualized, one-on-one care seniors receive from experienced at-home caregivers. Not only does receiving care from one primary caregiver help your loved one establish a relationship with his or her caregiver and build a routine, but the personalized care can be adjusted at any time to reflect his or her changing needs as the disease progresses.

Privacy

Senior loved ones may be hesitant to accept outside help due to a lack of independence or privacy. Care provided in your loved one’s home helps him or her maintain dignity and feel respected, so he or she won’t feel as though they are compromising comfort and security throughout the day.

Self-Esteem

Seniors who receive care at home show a greater level of self-esteem. The longer your senior loved one feels valued, the healthier and happier he or she will be. Studies show people with Alzheimer’s have a higher level of confidence when cared for in familiar surroundings.

Quality of Life

Seniors with Alzheimer’s should never have to compromise life quality for good care. Maintaining your senior loved one’s dignity and encouraging pleasurable activities will help him or her enjoy the time he or she has with you and improve his or her overall mood.
