You are not alone. We provide Alzheimer's care for your loved one at home, giving you the support you need.
Because dementia progresses over time to become Alzheimer's, someone with the disorder may require an increased amount of assistance as the disease progresses. Providing dementia or Alzheimer's care in the home can be physically and emotionally draining. We understand the challenges faced by family caregivers and can help ease the burden.
Many of the Comfort Keepers of Salem, OR provide customized dementia and Alzheimer's care plans for clients who are experiencing symptoms of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Our Comfort Keepers caregivers are specially trained and ready to help provide dementia and Alzheimer's care.
What is Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Care?
In general, dementia is a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks, serious enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Our services help people with these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths, while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to perform.Contact Us
