As we age, many of us desire to remain in our own homes as long as possible. For seniors who have lived in their own homes for years, moving in with family or to an assisted living facility can be difficult and overwhelming. Curodoc understands that Elderly care services at home are the preferred option for many seniors, and we are committed to providing elder care that helps seniors live as independently as possible while maintaining a high quality of life.

Q: What are the benefits of Alzheimer's care at home?
A: Alzheimer's care at home provides seniors with personalized care services that cater to their unique needs. This type of care allows seniors to maintain their independence, remain in their own homes, and receive the help they need with daily living activities.

To help seniors with Alzheimer's age in place safely and comfortably, Curodoc recommends implementing the following strategies:
Keep things consistent: Consistency is essential for seniors with Alzheimer's. Familiar surroundings and routines can help reduce confusion and anxiety. Avoid reorganizing their home too much and instead, use labels to help them find items and keep things organized.
Reduce clutter: Too much clutter can be overwhelming and confusing for seniors with Alzheimer's. Remove any unnecessary items and keep the home tidy to reduce the risk of trip-and-fall hazards.
Increase kitchen safety: The kitchen can be a dangerous place for seniors with Alzheimer's. Reduce the risk of burns by lowering the temperature of hot water and installing safety knobs or disabling the stove. Keep chemicals, medications, and sharp objects out of reach and provide safe, non-toxic cleaning tools.
Deter wandering: As Alzheimer's progresses, seniors may be more apt to wander. Use stop signs on doors to remind them not to go out, and install gates to block stairways and certain rooms. Remove car keys if it is no longer safe for them to drive.
Increase supervision: Partnering with a professional caregiver can help ensure the safety and well-being of seniors with Alzheimer's. Caregivers can assist with meal preparation, medication management, mobility, and more, while also providing companionship and conversation.
