Partner With the Leading Dementia Caregiver in Nashville and Surrounding Areas
A diagnosis of dementia is life-changing. Having a trusted partner who is familiar with the terrain is crucial. At Stay Home Care, we have vast experience in walking alongside those with dementia and their family members. We understand the unique challenges inherent with the disease, and what it takes to overcome them.
An Alzheimer’s caregiver from Stay Home Care can be just as life-changing as the diagnosis itself. Our dementia care at home empowers older adults to continue to live as independently and safely as possible, in an environment that is most comfortable and familiar.
We provide just the right level of support to foster a sense of autonomy and control for seniors with cognitive challenges. Our memory care enhancement activities are selected according to ability level and the stage of the disease to help to keep memory as sharp as possible for a lifetime. And we are available for as much or as little care as needed, based on each family’s specific needs and circumstances.
Why Should You Consider an In-Home Dementia Caregiver?
Providing care for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia is both highly rewarding and, at times, overwhelming. The person’s needs evolve throughout the progression of the disease, and the resulting behaviors can be hard to navigate.
You may find that a strategy that works well one day is completely ineffective the next. The demands of providing for someone with cognitive impairment care can wear on your patience and overall wellbeing, and can quickly lead to caregiver burnout and depression.
Alzheimer’s care should never be a one-person endeavor. A strong support network is vital to allow you to maintain a healthy life balance. Stepping away from your caregiving duties on a regular basis is the best way to maintain a healthy life balance. These breaks from care allow you to return to your family member refreshed and rejuvenated, and ultimately, to provide them with the best level of care.
Having a trusted, skilled professional dementia care team at your side means the best possible care for the person you love. It means you always have someone to share resources and tips with you, to bounce your concerns off of, and to work together with to make life the very best it can be for your loved one.
Why Stay Home Care Is the Right Choice for Dementia Care at Home
Stay Home Care utilizes creativity, patience, and skill to provide care that is highly individualized to meet each person’s unique needs. We never apply a cookie-cutter approach when providing dementia help. Instead, we get to know each senior personally: their past history, their current interests and ability level, what is important to them, etc. We then provide activities that enhance memory, foster a sense of meaning and purpose, and spark joy and engagement.
Each and every caregiver who is part of the Stay Home Care team has been fully vetted, including thorough background checks and interviews. They are then fully trained in a full range of senior care needs, including specialized memory care techniques. Our goal is to ensure that each member of our care staff is one we would choose to have supporting our own senior family members at home, to provide you with the peace of mind you need and deserve.
Whether you’re looking for a tag-team approach, allowing us to step in while you step away, or you want full-time, around-the-clock care, we’re here for you.
