Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care
Dealing with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or Dementia can be not only a very sad time but a truly confusing and scary time as well. At Colonial Home Care, we provide you with guidance from specially trained caregivers that have worked with many families who have gone through this uncertain journey.
All of our caregivers who work with our Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients are required to have a minimum of one year experience working with the population and have completed the highest standard Colonial Home Care Alzheimer’s and Dementia training program. They are there to provide safety, communication with family and friends, as well as help and guidance along the way either in the early, middle or late stages. We believe that our patients deserve to maintain their dignity and live in the comfort of their own home, or facility where they reside, for as long as possible.
Our team of specially trained Alzheimer’s and Dementia caregivers communicate with our patients, family members, doctors, and other healthcare providers to make sure that everyone is updated on any changes in condition and current status. We feel that everyone is an important part of the care team of our patients.
Our nurses will complete an assessment and provide an individualized plan of care for each of our patients. The nurse will then supervise the implementation of the plan to ensure the patient's safety and well-being.
Based in Chantilly, VA, we have happy customers from McLean and many other cities of Virginia.

Working with people with Alzheimer’s can be difficult, often my mother was confused and argumentative. Cathy was always nurturing and respectful.
