If your loved one is living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, chances are you’re experiencing many emotions. The sorrow of seeing a loved one’s personality and memories change is mixed with worry for their safety and well-being. Senior Helpers understands what you’re going through, and we can help.
A Unique Approach
- We developed our Senior Gems® program hand-in-hand with renowned dementia care specialist, Teepa Snow, OTR/L, of Positive Approach, LLC (www.teepasnow.org.
- Other programs and routines for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia focus on what they are no longer able to do. Senior Gems®, on the other hand, focuses on what they can do.
- The strength of our program lies in its emphasis on allowing seniors as much independence as possible, helping to increase their quality of life while still ensuring their safety.
- We use gemstones to represent the stage of Alzheimer’s and dementia your loved one is in.
- Each gemstone comes with its own characteristics (such as often misplacing things) and activities (such as cooking a meal).
- The gem stages make it easy for loved ones and caregivers alike to understand more about what a senior is experiencing, and to help them maximize their quality of life.
- Senior Helpers’ caregivers are experts in the Senior Gems® program.
- They provide in-home care based on your loved one’s specific needs.
- Their expertise in Alzheimer’s and dementia care can help you rest easy that your loved one is living a safer life and is receiving top-notch care.
