We help clients with all different conditions, however there are some specific ways that people with Alzheimer’s can be helped by home care. And, if you remember, a few weeks ago we talked about Alzheimer’s and brain health. So let’s go over a few right now.


One of the most important ways that a caregiver can assist someone with Alzheimer’s is helping with their movement and walking. This gives them some more independence. It also ensures their safety and can prolong their ability to stay in their homes.

Building and Adhering to a Routine

Caregivers can either build a routine or maintain one that already exists, and that can be really important in caring for people with Alzheimer’s. It also can allow our clients to be involved in their own care. For example, someone with Alzheimer’s may not be able to keep time enough to know when to eat dinner and probably cannot safely cook anymore, but a good caregiver would make sure that they eat at the same time every day. They can also give the client a choice in what they eat.


A client with Alzheimer’s who wants to stay in their house as long as possible may not be able to take care of their house anymore. And even if they were able to clean their house, that is probably not what they want to spend their time. Having someone who comes around a certain number of times a week to do lifht housekeeping can help with the general upkeep of the house.

These are just a few of the ways that home care can help Alzheimer’s patients. There are more ways, so leave a comment down below if you would like to read more about this later on. We have some great things planned this summer, so stay tuned!
