Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Care in Columbus, GA and the Bi-City Area
You are not alone. We can help care for your loved one at home, giving you the support you need.
Comfort Keepers often take care of clients challenged with varying degrees of dementia. For some clients, it is momentary lapses of memory or confusion. However, some clients and their families are dealing with significant dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
Each day, there are things we do that provide us purpose and pleasure and contribute to a quality of life. Persons dealing with dementia have the same need for quality of life. Without some assistance from families and caregivers, however, it is much more difficult for them to achieve purpose and pleasure. There are many ways to plan and provide appropriate activities for people with dementia.
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
