Home Nursing Care & Assistance for Seniors with Dementia

If you or your loved one is suffering from the effects of Dementia and/or Memory Loss, we understand how challenging it is to provide the support and care you or they need to remain as healthy and independent as possible. We can provide the assistance and support you or your family needs to help you or your loved one have a quality of life that optimizes your or their safety while remaining secure in the comfort of your or their home.

At Nursing Plus of Broward, our Nurses, Therapists, and clinicians are specifically trained and have an understanding of caring for those persons with Dementia and Memory Loss. We’ll work hands-on with you or your loved one, their physician, and any family members or caregivers to provide the education, support, and therapy needed to optimize mobility, safety, and function.

Our Nurses and Therapists are specially trained in caring for persons with Dementia and Memory Loss and possess an advanced understanding of health, mobility and safety concerns that commonly accompany changes in memory and cognition.

As Dementia progresses, the need for care becomes greater.

In addition to the annual physical and cognitive assessment, your loved one’s physician may certify the necessity of physical and/or occupational therapy, at home, in addition to skilled nursing or personal caregiver training and/or assistance.

At Nursing Plus of Broward, we can help to:

  • Provide skilled nursing care after a qualifying hospital stay or a change in or exacerbation of your loved one’s condition to help recover their strength, function and return to their maximum or optimal level of functioning.
  • Evaluate the environment and assess safety in the home in order to identify problem areas. Our Physical and Occupational Therapists will work to find solutions that will enhance functioning and manage issues that accompany limitations with movement while promoting your loved one’s strengths and abilities.
  • Improve the performance of activities of daily living (ADLs) and functional mobility with physical and occupational therapies.
  • Provide in-depth training through Physical and Occupational Therapies to help your loved one improve their balance and safety.
  • Integrate physical therapy exercises that help to restore and improve range of motion, strength, gait, balance and endurance.
  • Provide intermittent Nursing Care as instructed by your loved one’s physician.
  • Provide strategies that help you and your loved one communicate better.
  • Provide education/instruction for your loved one’s medications, mobility, and safety.
  • Provide training also to the patient’s caregivers in order to accomplish all of the above as well as provide assistance in obtaining durable medical equipment (DME) recommended and ordered by their physician.
  • Work to prevent future incidents by understanding a patient’s triggers and finding ways to lower their stress and frustration.
  • Have our Medical Social Workers provide patients and their loved ones with information about locating resources from both the local community as well as from the state and federal governments.
  • Assist the patient with daily activities of living such as bathing, dressing, and brushing their teeth and hair when applicable and ordered.

How can in-home care help seniors with Dementia?

Change can be stressful for anyone and can be especially difficult and fear-inducing for someone trying to make sense of an increasingly confusing world. Our licensed medical professionals will provide hospital-level care in the comfort of your loved one’s home to help minimize confusion, agitation, stress, and anxiety.

Some of the benefits that providing your loved one with care at home include:

  • Ensured one-on-one, attentive care from Registered Nurses, Therapists, Social Workers as well as Home Health Aides
  • The ability to remain in a familiar space and avoid the stress of unfamiliar locations.
  • Minimize trips to appointments for rehabilitation or therapy that may trigger anxiety.
  • Provide the comfort that comes from staying in a clean, safe home away from other patients who may carry illnesses or viruses that could spread.
  • Keeping a nutritious diet ordered specifically for them by their physician.
  • Vigilant monitoring of your loved one’s behavior on a one-on-one level to quickly identify any changes or problem areas.
  • Instruction/education regarding one’s medication regimen to help manage Dementia’s symptoms.

Benefits of a Licensed Caregiver

Our Nurses, Therapists, Social Workers, and all clinicians are specially trained in caring for seniors with Dementia and Memory Loss and understand the unique challenges of caring for those with the disease, especially with co-existing health concerns. We know how to best manage symptoms that accompany Dementia and can provide the care needed for any other chronic conditions they have, such as Diabetes, Heart Failure, COPD, or assist with acute injuries that need short-term care.

Using advanced techniques, our coordinated nursing and therapy services will help you or your loved one navigate everyday challenges like medication management, proper diet, and safety with functional mobility.
