Alzheimer’s Care in Shreveport, LA & Surrounding Areas
You are not alone. Specialized Alzheimer's care can help care for your loved one at home, giving you the support you need.
Caring for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in the home can be physically and emotionally draining.
Watching someone close to you go through the aging process is a difficult transition; watching them lose the memories the two of you used to share is even more difficult. Modern-day life prevents many of us from providing the type of care we would like to provide to our senior loved one, but know they can't be left to themselves. Patients diagnosed with Dementia or Alzheimer's may have an incredibly difficult time maneuvering through every-day activities or may even be dangers unto themselves if left alone. These types of situations call for around the clock dementia care, or at the very least, someone who is able to check up on the situation as often as possible.
We understand the challenges faced by family caregivers attempting to provide Alzheimer's care, and can help ease the burden with our professional support.
Comfort Keepers of Shreveport, LA provides customized Alzheimer's care for clients who are experiencing symptoms of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Our Comfort Keepers® are specially trained and ready to help.
To learn more about Alzheimer's care, contact us or call (318) 319-2745 to schedule a free in-home consultation. One of our care coordinators will work with you and your senior loved one to develop a personalized home care plan to accommodate their needs, wants, interests and goals.
What is Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Care?
In general, dementia is a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks, serious enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Our services help people with these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths, while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to perform.Contact Us
