Alzheimer and Dementia Care | Wheaton DuPage IL

Depending on the nature and the scope of the diagnosis, individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia can have a wide variety of healthcare and life-care needs. Those living with advanced-stage illness may require around-the-clock palliative or hospice care and highly specialized support, while others may need only basic life assistance or personal care on a part-time basis.

Whatever the need, BrightStar Care® of Central DuPage-Wheaton can help. We specialize in the care of individuals living with neurological memory disorders and we can help you overcome the challenges, both physical and emotional, you face in meeting their needs.

We offer a comprehensive system of support, so you and your family can provide the best quality of care for your loved one, and make the most of the time you have together.

When you or a loved one needs care related to Alzheimer’s and Dementia, BrightStar Care of Central DuPage-Wheaton can help not only in managing the symptoms, but in enhancing the wellbeing of the patient and helping to promote optimal safety. Contact us at 630-260-5300 and let us know how we can help.

Our Alzheimer’s and Dementia care program focuses on:

Environment

We help our clients maintain a safe environment, identifying hidden hazards in the home and making recommendations for enhanced safety measures, such as installing stability bars in the bathroom and removal of trip hazards.

Activities

Our caregivers engage clients in intellectually stimulating activities, such as reading books, playing cards, doing puzzles and more. We also take the time to listen and learn about the things our clients used to do and enjoy, and create custom activities that will be familiar for them.

Routines

Routines are an important part of the care plan for anyone living with cognitive impairments. They can be helpful in prompting recall, memory and in managing the unpredictability of the disease. BrightStar Care caregivers manage client appointments and schedule activities to help them learn and maintain a routine.

Abilities

One of the best treatments for individuals with neurological disorders is the ability to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, such as going for a walk in the park or riding in the car to get ice cream. These activities can help optimize abilities and independence, boost mood and enhance quality of life.

What is Alzheimer’s Disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is a neurological disorder that often begins slowly with mild symptoms that  gradually advance. Individuals with this illness often suffer from memory loss and the inability to care properly for their own nutritional and personal hygiene needs. Patients with Alzheimer’s are also at a higher risk of falling or accidentally injuring themselves, and an in-home care provider can assist you in keeping your loved one safe.

Symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease include:

  • The inability to remember words, details, directions, people and events
  • Difficulty performing simple tasks (such as personal hygiene or grooming)
  • Depression or lack of motivation
  • Forgetfulness and confusion
  • Irritability
  • Poor decision making or judgment
