If you have a loved with dementia, you understand the challenges of this disease. Many people suffering from dementia prefer to live at home for treatment and care. However, this can leave a family feeling overwhelming at times. Fortunately, you do not have to take on this responsibility alone - Comfort Keepers® of Flemington, NJ offers professional dementia care from our highly skilled caregivers. At Comfort Keepers®, we understand the struggles families face when caring for a senior with dementia, and we are here to help.
Comfort Keepers® provides in-home dementia care for patients with dementia. This specialty care is provided by caregivers who have taken specific training to better comprehend dementia. These compassionate and professional caregivers are trained in the latest approaches to help patients with the challenges of cognitive difficulties.
Dementia is not a specific disease. It's an overall term that describes a wide range of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person's ability to perform everyday activities. Dementia is characterized by a steady decline in one’s mental abilities—typically related to old age. Memory loss is the most common sign of dementia, but there are other indications or warning signs. According to the Mayo Clinic, some of the more common indicators of dementia include:
Difficulty communicating or finding the right words.
Difficulty reasoning or problem-solving.
Difficulty with communication or speaking.
Difficulty with planning and organizing.
Difficulty with coordination and motor functions.
Confusion and disorientation
Over time, as the dementia progresses, someone with the disorder will need more and more assistance. If your loved one is living with dementia, it can be emotionally draining to watch their decline on a daily basis. Our dementia care services can help take some responsibility and stress away from you.
How Comfort Keepers® Can Help?
We provide dementia care to help give you some relief and to help your loved one retain their comfort and dignity as long as possible. Our caregivers are trained to handle the specific needs of those with dementia. Every member of our staff has been coached on how to identify the behavioral cues of our dementia clients and has received extensive training on how to address those behaviors. Our training classes and workshops are held throughout the year and evolve as new treatment options become available. They are patient, empathetic, and experienced. They are also trained to implement Comfort Keepers' unique Interactive Caregiving™ system. With Interactive Caregiving, our caregivers will get to know your loved one on a personal level, learning about likes, dislikes and even past events in their life. The goal is to engage your loved one. We want seniors with dementia to keep their dignity and independence for as long as possible. We’ll treat your loved one like any other human being, offering assistance only when needed. We focus on working with their remaining abilities, rather than emphasizing the skills they’ve lost.

What is Dementia 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
