(PRUnderground) March 28th, 2022
In the US, more than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s. By 2050, this number is projected to rise to nearly 13 million, according to The Alzheimer’s Association.
It’s a distressing and worrying time when an elderly family member is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Most seniors usually prefer to stay in their homes than go somewhere else. This can be a challenging position to be in as family members are often concerned about the quality of life and safety of their elderly loved ones. For those with Alzheimer’s or dementia, it is best to be cared for at home because it provides great benefits to them. In other words, they can have it their way with Touching Hearts Alzheimer’s & dementia care plan.

The dementia friendly practices enable caregivers create bonds with caretakers that can lead to rewarding and positive care outcomes for the elderly loved ones. Family members can be confident in knowing that the elderly loved one is being cared for with dignity and respect by experienced and trained caregivers.
It is important to know the signs of dementia, which can include memory loss, mood swings, and confusion. It is also important to know that dementia is not just a disease of old age. This disorder can be experienced by anyone who has experienced a traumatic brain injury or stroke.
It is normal that as the disease progresses, some daily tasks become more challenging and can require extensive support. It can lead to misunderstandings that quickly turn into feelings of isolation and frustration for the elderly loved ones. Touching Hearts at Home NYC’s caregivers are trained to provide memory care assistance to offer support to the individual living with the cognitive disease. This can include a range of daily tasks, including reminding about regular tasks, organizing the daily activities, appointments, and taking care of seemingly menial tasks. The elderly would never have to worry about forgetting important details again!
“We are passionate about creating an environment for our clients with cognitive diseases to feel safe, valued, and understood. There’s no reason why those with dementia or Alzheimer’s shouldn’t feel a sense of belonging and remain part of the family, community, and civic life,” said Craig Sendach, owner of Touching Hearts at Home NYC. “Our caregivers at Touching Hearts at Home NYC are committed to providing the best services possible, carefully designed to the unique needs of the individual and their family. Taking care of an elderly loved one with dementia is more than a job. It’s a responsibility that a caregiver must take seriously and treat such responsibility as a privilege to be trusted with.”
