The day-to-day tasks of a loved one with dementia can occasionally be overwhelming, but Care 2000 Health Services can help your family with dementia care in North York to make sure your loved one can continue to function as well as possible for as long as possible.
We work to study and implement the latest studies and trends in what works and what does not work when it comes to dementia care. There are certain tactics that, over time, have proven to be quite effective, and we work to implement them in our process.
Develop a Routine
Everyone has a general rhythm of how they go through their day, from infants to adults. If you have a loved one who is dealing with general confusion, a stable routine can be especially helpful. If someone can sense what is coming next in their day, it can help add clarity. If there is a certain period of day where your loved one seems less confused, we can help you plan major activities for those times.
We work to establish positive reinforcement and encourage a degree of independence with graded assistance. This is a way of helping someone accomplish a task with the least amount of help possible. Sometimes all that is needed is a gentle reminder to encourage someone to complete a task that can keep them independent for longer.
Activities & Exercise
Physical stimulation and mental stimulation go hand-in-hand. By working light physical exercise into a loved one’s routine, it can provide both mental stimulation as well as socialization that can provide relief and a connection with others.
