By building relationships with Alzheimer’s patients and their families, we are able to provide individualized care that caters to the needs of each patient. By taking a relationship-centered approach to Alzheimer’s home care in Toronto, we can help your loved one remain safe and calm at home. We encourage their social engagement, provide nutritious meals, provide mind-stimulating activities, minimize the changing behavioural and cognitive symptoms, and honour the person the patient was before their diagnosis. By doing these things we support families, and strive to provide the best home care for seniors with Alzheimer’s in Toronto. Here are some tips to keep in mind when looking to provide better care for your loved one.
How to Talk to a Loved One Suffering from Alzheimer’s
If you are unsure of how to talk about the illness with your loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s, we can provide training for you. Our professional caregivers understand that families need help when it comes to providing for the needs of their senior loved one. We provide training and online resources so that you can get informed and educated about the illness and common symptoms that result from it. We also provide tips on how to care for your relative with Alzheimer’s, so that you can be a bigger part of their comfort. The best thing you can do for your relative with Alzheimer’s disease, is to show your support and care. Spending quality time with them and encouraging other family members to visit often makes a huge difference on their overall happiness and well-being.
How to Prevent a Parent with Alzheimer’s from Getting Lost
If you notice your loved one with Alzheimer’s disease is wandering around or getting lost, there are ways to prevent them from getting hurt. There are certain precautions you can take to keep them safe, such as securing the doors with locks so they are unable to open them without you, or using plastic child locks on door knobs to prevent them from going into the basement or out the front door. If you are worried about them getting into tool boxes or drawers with sharp objects, lock those up as well, or tape them shut when you are not around to supervise.
Flexible Home Care for Alzheimer’s Patients in Toronto
It is vital that you are confident about the safety, security, and care of your loved one, and Ronnie’s Home Care Services in Toronto aims to provide that to you. We start our process by interviewing our candidates over the phone; we follow up and invite them to an in-person interview. Right after, we personally contact their references. All of our staff members are required to have a CPR and first-aid certificate, clean record, police vulnerable sector check, and PSW certificate (if necessary).
