Advantages of In-Home Care for Patients With Alzheimer's

In-Home Alzheimer's Care

Caring for a parent or grandparent with Alzheimer's or dementia can be a challenge. Alzheimer's patients have unique care needs that can be a challenge to meet. You are not alone, in fact over 10 million people in the U.S. care for a loved one who has Alzheimer’s disease. The challenge for these caregivers is raising their own kids while holding down a full time job and still managing to care for their loved ones needs. For these caregivers, certain areas of their life will often suffer, such as their marriage, family, and career, as these areas will feel the stress.

The good news is you do not need to face this challenge alone. There is help available. Balanced Home Care provides compassionate care for patients with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. We specialize in in-home services such as everyday activities that comprise daily living. This gives both the caregiver and the patient much needed relief. Our staff is experienced in dealing with the anger, sadness, paranoia, confusion, and fear that often plague Alzheimer's patients. Victims of Alzheimer's often suffer mood swings that can make it difficult for family members to care for them. Our staff is specially trained to care for and understanding the needs of these patients.

With Balanced Home Care you can be assured that your loved one will be receiving proper loving care. We specialize in senior home care services. We can take over the common tasks while you are at work or caring for your children. We help with the following tasks:

  • Cooking

If you have been overwhelmed and are considering a nursing home but agonize over that choice, there is another option with our Alzheimer home care services. Alzheimer's disease requires increasing levels of care as the disease progresses. We can help you keep your loved one at home where they belong for as long as possible. We help by providing long term care to seniors with Alzheimer's and dementia conditions.
