You are not alone. Comfort Keepers® of Flemington, NJ can help care for your loved at home, giving you and your family the support you need.

Our caregivers receive special training to care for seniors with Alzheimer's disease and we are dedicated to providing the highest quality care to support families during this difficult time. We understand Alzheimer's disease, its symptoms, how it affects behavior, and that it progresses at different rates for different seniors. We understand what families are going through and we're here to help.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia—a group of disorders characterized mostly by memory loss. More than half of all dementia cases are classified as Alzheimer’s disease. While some memory loss is a normal part of the aging process, Alzheimer’s disease is not normal and gets progressively worse over time. In addition to memory loss, Alzheimer’s causes a number of other cognitive issues. Some other noticeable symptoms may include:
Disorientation and confusion.
Short-term memory loss.
Suspicion or paranoia about other people (including family).
Difficulty with communication or speaking.
Behavioral or mood changes (depression is common).
How Comfort Keepers® Can Help?
Over time, caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s may get increasingly more difficult. We offer specialized Alzheimer’s home care services to help take away some of the stress and responsibility that you may be feeling.
Our caregivers are trained and certified to provide empathetic, patient, and compassionate care to those with Alzheimer’s. They are also trained to implement Comfort Keepers’® unique Interactive Caregiving™ system. With Interactive Caregiving™, the caregiver will get to know your loved one on a personal level, learning about likes, dislikes and even past events in the senior’s life. While developing a relationship with your love one, the caregiver can plan activities that may help your loved one simulate mental or physical activities that have been shown to create more lucid thought. Your loved one and caregiver can listen to music together from his or her favorite era, read a favorite book or even do memory exercises like looking through family photos or discussing current events. The goal is to engage your loved one.
We will also help your loved one feel safe and calm through emotional support and assistance around the house. We focus on working with their remaining strengths and abilities, allowing us to put the emphasis on their care and dignity—not on the disease itself. In addition, our specially trained caregivers will:
Help maintain a safe environment for your loved one at all times.
24-hour care, live-in care or overnight care.
Engage your loved one in activities that can stimulate the senses, such as listening to music from a favorite era or baking cookies or looking at family photos.
Encourage your loved one to socializing and interact with family and friends.
Provide companionship, light housekeeping, laundry, meal planning and preparation, and exercise reminders.
Provide medication reminders, bathing assistance, grooming, feeding and mobility assistance.
Provide support for your loved one and your family through the changing behaviors often seen with Alzheimer's disease.
Comfort Keepers® Alzheimer’s care is dedicated to preserving the happiness and independence of seniors living in their own homes for as long and as safely as possible.

What is Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Home Care?
In general, dementia is a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks, serious enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Our services help people with these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths, while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to perform.Contact Us
