Alzheimer's & Dementia Care
Dealing with a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or Dementia can be not only an unfortunate time but a genuinely confusing and scary time. At Colonial Home Care, we guide specially trained caregivers who 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 must have a minimum of one year of experience working with the population and have completed the highest standard Colonial Home Care Alzheimer's and Dementia training program. Our patients deserve to maintain their dignity and live in the comfort of their homes or the facility where they reside for as long as possible. They provide safety, communication with family and friends, and help and guidance along the way, either in the early, middle, or late stages.
Our team of specially trained Alzheimer's and Dementia caregivers communicate with our patients, family members, doctors, and other healthcare providers to ensure that everyone is updated on any changes in condition and current status. Everyone is an essential 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 plan's implementation to ensure the patient's safety and well-being.
Based in Chantilly, VA, we have happy customers from McLean and many other cities in Virginia.
