Approximately 5.1 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, a condition that affects the parts of the brain that control thought, memory and language.
Caring for a senior with Alzheimer’s disease can be a challenge in many ways. Simple everyday tasks and activities become progressively more difficult.
Our care is designed so caregivers, Good Samaritan’s Certified Companion Aides©, are equipped with daily activities to help keep seniors with Alzheimer’s disease active.
Seniors with Alzheimer’s disease can benefit from participation in activities. Their lives can be enriched because activities can help to increase their feelings of usefulness and self-worth. Other benefits that may result from activities provided by a Certified Companion Aide©:
Enhancement and maintenance of general health;
Enhancement and maintenance of communications skills;
Decreased pacing and restlessness;
Increased nighttime sleep
We use materials and resources provided by the Alzheimer’s Association including Coach Broyles’ Playbook for Alzheimer’s Caregivers and in it together, educational series, to train our Companion Aides to care for any senior experiencing memory issues.
