Depending on the nature and the scope of the disease, individuals with neurological disorders can have a wide variety of healthcare and life-care needs. Those living with advanced-stage illness may require around-the-clock palliative care and highly specialized support, while others may need only basic assistance or personal care on a part-time basis.
Whatever the need, BrightStar can help. We specialize in the care of individuals living with neurological disorders — including Alzheimer’s care, Dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and more — and we can help you overcome the challenges, both physical and emotional, you face in meeting their needs.
At BrightStar, 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.
Our neurological disorder care program focuses on:
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.
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 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 caregivers manage client appointments and schedule activities to help them learn and maintain a routine.
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.
