After an initial diagnosis of Alzheimer’s / dementia, families are faced with difficult decisions about providing care for their loved one. Every day can be a challenge with your loved one suffering with confusion, disorientation, memory loss and fluctuations in behavior. These changes take a toll not only on the individual suffering with Alzheimer’s and dementia, but their families as well. Sometimes nursing homes or memory care centers in New York appear to be the only options, however you do have a choice, and Friends For Life can help.
We help to avoid the emotional trauma of leaving your loved one at home alone. We assist in helping the family coping with this illness and provide the respite care that is often so important to the family caregivers. Care is made available in your loved one’s own home, with services provided by skilled, compassionate caregivers, specially trained in working with clients with Alzheimer’s / dementia in New York. The services provided are customized to your loved one and their condition. We offer regular monitoring, routine check-ins, and an after-hours line so that you and your family have the peace of mind you need.
Friends for Life Homecare makes it possible for those coping with Alzheimer’s and/or dementia to age in place. Research has shown that familiar surroundings play an important role in the well-being of those with Alzheimer’s / dementia. A move to a nursing facility can trigger confusion, anxiety, stress and agitation. Our Alzheimer’s / dementia care services ensure those with Alzheimer’s / dementia are able to remain in the space where they are happiest, loved and most comfortable.
To help you find out if in-home Alzheimer’s care is right for your loved one, we offer free in-person meetings and assessments. A case manager will meet with you and your loved one in the comfort of your loved one’s home to evaluate your loved one’s care needs, outline your options for care, and answer any questions you have.
Care is personalized around each client’s needs, with services customized according to your loved one’s symptoms, personality, and routine. Our caregivers approach their work with kindness, patience, and above-and-beyond dedication to the seniors in their care.
The most common form of Dementia is Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging and it now affects close to six million Americans. This debilitating disease can cripple an individual’s ability to communicate, think or even take care of themselves.
