Exceptional Care for Unique Circumstances
At Live Free Home Health Care, we care for unique individuals with unique needs, and we know that whenever care needs arise, it’s important to have a trusted care partner on your side. Our experienced home health care team understands the challenges that people with special care needs, like Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, Parkinson’s, etc., face, and we know you deserve dedicated caregivers to help you or your loved one remain active, independent, engaged, and comfortable while receiving the care and attention you need.
With professional nurses on our staff, we can provide care for individuals with a wide range of special needs, including those with the following conditions:
- Alzheimer’s / Dementia
- Multiple sclerosis
- Post-surgical procedures
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Cardiovascular disease
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Genetic disorders
- Renal disease
- Parkinson’s disease
- Visual impairment
- And more
A Certified Dementia Practitioner trains our caregivers to care for clients with Alzheimer’s. Our caregivers learn the unique approach required to gently encourage someone with Alzheimer’s, using patience, specific activities, diversion, and some shared laughter. Learn more about caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia on our Resource page.
Because some challenging behaviors may present with Alzheimer’s disease, our caregivers are also trained to manage and care for Alzheimer’s-related behaviors such as:
- Sundowning (trouble sleeping/wandering during nighttime hours)
- Inappropriate behavior
Learn more about common causes of Alzheimer’s-related behaviors and how to respond to them supportively.
Special Training for Special Clients
In-home care allows clients with Alzheimer’s and dementia, ALS, Parkinson’s, and other special conditions to remain mentally and physically engaged while receiving the specialized care they need to stay independent for as long as possible. We ensure that all of our caregivers receive ongoing training via Nevvon, a nationally renowned training and certification agency for caregiving professionals. Our training programs enhance our caregivers’ skills and help them better understand person-centered care for individuals with dementia.
