Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care
Alzheimer’s disease destroys brain cells. Symptoms may include confusion, mood swings, language breakdown and memory loss. In addition to the possible need for Personal Care, caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease involves specialized services, including care tactics such as diversion, mental stimulation and constant safety monitoring by experienced and patient caregivers.
Our caregivers understand the importance of working one on one with our elderly clients to provide mental stimulation, with the help of activities, such as playing board games, making puzzles, reading to them or by simply making conversations.
Music can be a powerful tool in helping those with cognitive decline. Studies have shown that music may reduce agitation and improve behavioral issues, as it helps produce more of the brain’s “feel-good chemicals” including melatonin, serotonin, and prolactin in Alzheimer’s patients. At Pacific Crest Homecare Solutions, caregivers use music, such as, in a fun game of Music Bingo, to keep clients engaged and stimulated, while helping uplift their mood and to improve cognition.
