Alzheimer’s Care – Hearthside Companion
Nearly six million individuals in the United States and Canada alone have Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia – a number that is expected to reach nearly 20 million in the next five decades. These are not just statistics; they represent millions of families with loved ones who require special care.

You are not alone. Since 1999, families like yours have trusted Hearthside Home Care to provide care for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

Our staff will follow service plans and schedules that have been created by you and our nurse, and they will include such activities as:

 

  • Keeping a safe environment
  • Observing and reporting changing behaviors
  • Preparing and serving nutritious meals, and even feeding if needed
  • Carrying out activities meaningful and specific to the person
  • Helping with the activities of daily living such as bathing and grooming

Our approach of encouragement and assistance helps family members cope with the challenges of dementia. We know that care-giving for a person with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia is best provided in familiar surroundings. We are here for you for the shorter term during a transitional period, or for a longer term.
