Dealing with Alzheimer’s can be a difficult journey for both the person afflicted and their family. At Nightingale’s Nursing we provide our staff with the highest education and training to help care for those with Alzheimers. Our in-home care includes a wide range of services provided in the home, rather than in a hospital or care facility. It can allow a person with Alzheimer’s or other dementia to stay in his or her own home and also can be of great assistance to caregivers.
In the early stages of Alzheimer’s, a person may function independently. He or she may still drive, work and be part of social activities. Your role as care partner is an important one: to provide support and companionship, and help plan for the future.
The middle stages of Alzheimer’s are typically the longest and can last for many years. As dementia progresses, the person with Alzheimer’s will require a greater level of care. During this time, it’s important to get the support you need as a caregiver.
The late stage of Alzheimer’s disease may last from several weeks to several years. As the disease advances, intensive, around-the-clock care is usually required.
Nightingale’s Nursing is an authorized provider of Alzheimer’s services through the state of South Carolina and as such, we are authorized to provide care to people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s utilizing the Alzheimer’s grants programs in SC. We are also proud to support the fund raising efforts of The Alzheimer’s Association annually within our community!
