I have good success with not only senior men but senior women as well, especially those suffering with Alzheimer's dementia. Elder care provides an opportunity for the delivery of services to your loved one which may have waned over time for whatever reason. My training has been in the healing sciences being trained as a Certified Nurse Assistant, Home Health Aide, and Patient Care Technician. Supplementing these skills, and one's enhancing my effectiveness with dementia and other forms of changing health conditions, is my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology. This allows for the handling of situations, both emotional and cognitive which will ease the patient's state of stress, frustration, depression, and anger due to the decreasing ability to cope with life's situations. Adapting to change may be an easy task for you and me, but for your loved one, experiencing a progressive degeneration of capabilities adds to a sense of helplessness, anger, frustration, low self concept, and depression. My task is to promote a sense of capability, self worth, confidence, and happiness. To achieve these ends are the services I offer.
To reach these goals, I offer a full compliment of Assisted Daily Living Skills (ADLS), Bathing, Feeding, Nutrition, Restorative Care, Toileting, Medication Cues, and Recording, Infection Control, Oral Care, Vital Signs recording and monitoring, Reader, Companion, Cognitive Exercise, Flexibility and Range of Motion Exercise, Bio Rubs, Hydration, Flexion and Extension of Large Muscle Groups and Joints, and more. Conditions of loved ones for whom I care, generally include: aging seniors, Alzheimer's, arthritis, chronic pain, COPD, depression, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson's, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, incontinence, overactive bladder, and stroke.
All care is individualized and tailored to the needs of your loved one.
