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 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
All of our caregivers are specially trained to care for clients with Alzheimer’s disease by a Certified Dementia Practitioner and receive ongoing training through IPCed. Through thoughtful and thorough training, 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 themselves with Alzheimer’s disease, Live Free’s caregivers are also trained to manage and care for Alzheimer’s-related behaviors such as:
- Sundowning (trouble sleeping / wandering during nighttime hours)
- Inappropriate behavior

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. At Live Free Home Health Care, we are dedicated to providing compassionate, comprehensive care to all our clients.
To do this, we make sure all our caregivers receive ongoing training via the Institute for Professional Caregiver Education (IPCed), a nationally renowned training and certification agency for caregiving professionals, to ensure that they have a full understanding of how to care for individuals with special care needs. Our training programs serve to enhance our caregivers’ skills and help them better understand person-centered care for the individual with dementia.
