In-Home Memory Support
BeHome PartnersTM has adapted to meet the changing needs of seniors by creating a new program, “In Home Memory Support,” to help them live a rich, Abundant Life®while remaining in their own home.
Caregivers are carefully selected for their capacity for empathy and compassion. Each is trained in addressing all aspects of the aging process, including Alzheimer’s disease and other conditions that affect memory and cognition.
During their in-home visits, our caregivers follow an individualized treatment plan, which could include (but is not limited to) providing companionship, engaging in mentally stimulating activities, and providing personal care for basic activities of daily living. They are also able to develop strategies to diffuse stressful situations, manage challenging behaviors that may arise as a result of the patient’s dementia, and identify situations that may become problematic.
As the patient’s needs are identified, BeHome PartnersTMcan also provide skilled care such as nursing; physical, occupational or speech therapy; and nutrition counseling.
Services can be provided on a short or long term basis. The application process is simple, so services can be initiated quickly to provide relief to family caregivers.
