Dementia Care

Professional care at home

Presbyterian SeniorCare at Home provides caregivers who are specially trained to provide dementia care services at home. Our professional team works with each individual’s referring physician or geriatrician to determine the care and services needed. We base our care on standards set by the national Alzheimer’s Association and Johns Hopkins University and our own nationally acclaimed Woodside Place.

Dementia care starts with a comprehensive, individualized assessment from which a service plan is developed. The service plan incorporates the needs of the person with dementia, the needs of the family caregivers and the home environment.

    Presbyterian SeniorCare at Home subscribes to the John Hopkins University model of Four Pillars of Practical Dementia Care. Studies have shown that delivery of this “package” of dementia care has significant positive effects in symptom reduction, quality of life, delay of disability and benefits to caregiver mood and quality of life.

    • Treat the disease: We educate you about interventions that are available to slow progression of Alzheimer’s, and just as important, help make sure other chronic diseases, such as diabetes, are managed.
    • Treat the symptoms: We help you understand cognitive, functional, behavioral symptoms and what can be done to treat these symptoms.
    • Support the client: We encourage meaningful activities, personal safety, good physical and dental health, knowledgeable caregivers and a supportive environment.
    • Support the caregiver: We promote education, guidance, resources, adjustment to changes and tending to own needs.
