When you or a loved one is diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease, it can be overwhelming to consider the necessary medical support and care in the future. The good news is that in-home care allows patients to stay in their own homes.
At Avatar Healthcare, we are committed to providing patients and families with the best care possible. Our personalized approach gives you access to a team of providers. In addition, we’ll help you navigate the industry and identify the services and support that suit your needs.
Memory Loss Screening and Personalized Care
Early diagnosis is critical to ensuring quality care for each patient, which is why our staff recommends screening services for patients at risk of memory loss. For example, it’s common for healthcare providers to recommend screenings for these patients:
- Post cardiac arrest
- Post respiratory arrest
- Post seizure
- Diagnosis of an autoimmune disease
- Diagnosis of congestive heart failure
- Patients with sleep apnea
- Patients over the age of 65
Thorough testing can identify the earliest signs of memory loss, as well as the progression of cognitive decline. Then, our team can assist in helping your family access the ideal services to slow the progression of this disease.
Memory Care: A Complete Workout for the Brain
Our cutting-edge memory care treatments provide a complete workout for the brain, helping people to regain memory and minimize the effects of memory loss. These services are focused on scientific results discovered through brain specialists and experienced doctors.
The first step is to understand more about the memory challenges your loved one is experiencing. Next, we evaluate the needs of each patient and determine eligibility for available services.
If it’s determined that your family member is a good candidate for this memory care program, then our team at Avatar Healthcare creates a personalized treatment plan. The goal is to evaluate the needs of each patient, then optimize and monitor the progress of the brain and body.
Full-Service Memory Care: At Home
Our memory care services are much more than making the patient comfortable. We strive to optimize the patient’s overall health and wellness while also addressing the caregiver’s needs as well.
At Avatar Healthcare, our team uses technology to maintain open communication with everyone involved in the patient’s care. For example, digital resources provide access online for families and doctors, showing:
- The patient’s vital signs, including heart rate, temperature, blood pressure, sleep, and physical activity
- The progress of cognitive therapy through ongoing treatments
- Physician monitoring and alerts if the patient’s vitals change
Through these online tools, both nurses can provide a combination of in-person and telemedicine care. This hybrid approach enables full-service care at all times, even when the patient is at home without a medical provider nearby.
Benefits You Can Expect from a Memory Care Program
Why should you consider in-home memory care services? Patients and families enjoy a variety of benefits, including:
- Ongoing visits from our experienced staff members
- Modern technology to monitor patient biometrics (heart rate, sleep, activity, and blood pressure)
- Memory care treatments with a licensed clinician 2 – 3 times per week.
Do You Need Memory Care for Yourself or a Loved One?
The best way to determine if these services are right for you is by contacting our team at Avatar Healthcare. We’ll discuss your situation and help you find the ideal services to fit your unique needs.
Here are a few things to keep in mind that will help you decide if these services are the right fit:
- Care for patients with memory loss or mild to moderate dementia
- Goal to help the patient maintain as much independence as possible
- A need for ongoing tracking of physiological, physical, and sleep activity
- Preference to delay moving a patient to a care facility or nursing home
- The patient needs cognitive therapy at home 2 – 3 times per week
Even though there is no cure for cognitive decline, a variety of services can effectively slow the progress of this disease. Our program focuses on creating new brain connections that help to slow down and decrease memory loss.
More Than Memory Care: Support for the Whole Family
While our memory care program prioritizes the needs of each patient, we don’t overlook the unique support that families require as well. In addition, online access and ongoing communication keep caregivers informed about progress and patient needs at all times.
At Avatar Healthcare, we are proactive about staying at the forefront of the memory care industry. Our program involves memory training systems that are scientifically proven to help patients with short-term memory loss.
