Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care at Home in Greater Victoria, BC

 

Are You Serving as a Dementia Caregiver for Someone You Love?

Caring for a loved one who has received an Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis can be confusing as well as emotionally and physically exhausting.

The good news is that you don’t have to go it alone. Our trained and experienced caregivers are here to help with dementia care in Victoria, BC and the surrounding areas.

Dementia home care services offer respite for family members who need a break from the relentless demands of primary caregiving. Our caregivers are specially trained via a certification program called “Gentle Persuasive Approaches” (GPA) to communicate with and serve individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia. 

An evidence-based, person-centered system, GPA ensures that caregivers take on the onus for understanding patterns of behaviors and triggers. GPA-trained caregivers always interact with their client as a person with history, dignity, and capacity for interpersonal relationships. At the end of each visit, we want our clients to feel happy, even if they can’t remember the visit.

An Outing to Remember

Several years ago, the family of a potential client approached us with a question. Her husband loved to fish but had recently been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. Could we provide someone who could take her husband fishing and keep his joy around his favorite pastime alive? Many other agencies had already told her no, but we found the right caregiver and gave Linda our enthusiastic “yes!”

To arrange care for a senior you love with Alzheimer’s or dementia, contact us today.
