As many as 4.5 million people suffer from varying stages of Alzheimer's Disease (AD) in the United States alone. AD is a common form of dementia that negatively impacts the portions of the brain that effect thought, memory and language. The initial symptoms may be as minor as forgetting names or recent events, but as the disease progresses, the Alzheimer's patient may wander, become anxious or even aggressive.
Most people hope to age safely and comfortably in their own home, including those managing AD. Golden Heart Senior Care can assist in this area so that Alzheimer's patients can safely stay in their own home for as long as possible. We take measures to ensure the person remains safe, and we have successfully cared for some clients all the way through the palliative care process.
Similarly, we provide specialized care to people with other forms of dementia.
Our Caregivers receive formal Directed Care training by local chapters of the Alzheimer's Association, Alzheimer's Disease Education and Referral Center (ADEAR), Hospice organizations, as well as our CEU Partner Aquire Training. Our level of care includes:
- Meal planning and nutrition
- Assist patients with dressing and personal grooming
- Aid in communication

- Implement home safety measures to prevent driving, wandering, and inappropriate use of appliances
- Memory enhanced activities

Becoming a caregiver for your loved one can be tough and stressful, and it doesn't always happen by choice. Each year, thousands of people make the conscious decision to provide crucial living assistance for their friends, family members or spouses. Countless others are thrust into caregiver roles when loved ones are stricken by injuries, illnesses or disabilities. For some, providing care is as easy as helping out with chores around the house. For others, being a caregiver is literally a full-time job in addition to what you are already doing.
There will be times when you need to take a break from caring for your loved one. Golden Heart Senior Care provides you with that much needed rest. We have short-term care programs available to give you the time you need to step away and rejuvenate. Whether you need us for 1 week or for 3 months, we can provide respite care until you are ready to step back into the caregiver role.
Also, just having someone you trust come in for a few hours a few days a week can give you that much-needed “down time” to run errands, relax, or even enjoy a social outing. Golden Heart’s professional caregivers will be there for you and your loved one!
