The first step is getting to know you, or your loved one’s past and current strengths, interests, and goals. We will then assess physical and mental health, what barriers exist, and previous life activities and interests.

Other Services include:

 

Personal Shopping - assisting clients with groceries or clothing, sometimes its nice to just get out!

Respite care - allowing the caregiver to shop, complete chores, or simply get some rest.

Transportation  - getting the client to and from an appointment or event safely.

 

Activities don’t have to fit in a box or on a calendar, and they don’t have to be held at specific hourly intervals throughout the day. There are countless opportunities for activities often right in front of all dementia carers. Making the bed. Mealtime. Watering the plants. Tidying up the room. Each of these things, small and simple though they seem, can provide rich opportunities for engaging a loved one who is perhaps not interested in bingo, movies, or other group activities.
