Personal Care for those living with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia
We are here to help you as you care for someone living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. NursePartners understands that dementia poses many changes that require personalized care, expertise, and compassion. NursePartners is an option for providing support to individuals as they age in place. Please contact us to learn more about how we can help you.
Our approach to Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia is based on The GEMS™: Brain Change Model created by Teepa Snow. We recognize Teepa’s positive approach to care as an effective method to provide care for those living with dementia. This approach categorizes dementia through six gemstones, defined by unique characteristics. Click here for an overview of the classification system.
Trained carepartners are knowledgeable and experienced with dementia and adjust care accordingly. After an initial assessment, we create a plan of care to help your loved one live comfortably and safely. This positive approach allows carepartners to fill their time together with meaningful activities and positive interactions to best support every stage.
Our dementia trained carepartners are dedicated to improving quality of life and keeping a record of everything from mood behaviors, health complications, and daily activities. We begin to understand what factors contribute to positive moods and overall happiness.
As we learn to appreciate and understand what changes and what is still possible, we can generate a plan of care that is positive and productive.
