When your loved one is facing severe memory and cognitive function loss, the home should be their refuge—a place that inspires hope, provides comfort, and reminds them that they are loved.
The familiarity of home brings a much-needed sense of comfort and security for seniors with dementia. Unfortunately, as physical and mental limitations increase due to both aging and the effects of this condition, life at home also creates many unique challenges. That’s when HomeWell’s Dementia Care Support can make all the difference. We’ll look after your loved one and help them manage their symptoms at home, giving you peace of mind and respite from the demands of being a family caregiver.

- Provide more socialization and engagement opportunities, such as playing games and participating in your loved one’s favorite hobbies to promote more cognitive stimulation or joining them on outings to help them maintain an active, vibrant life and stay connected to their community—all of which can be beneficial for memory retention and mental health.
- Serve as your liaison. Along with providing dedicated care, they consistently monitor the progression of your loved one’s symptoms to keep you apprised of any changes.
