A dementia diagnosis can have a drastic impact on the lives of those affected, as well as the lives of those around them. Dementia affects an individual in a number of ways, with symptoms typically increasing in severity over time. It is important to consider how to provide proper care for someone who has been diagnosed with dementia to ensure that their quality of life will not be greatly diminished. At Home Health Care of Hoover, we provide in-home health care services to alleviate the challenges of caring for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s. We can provide full-time assistance or temporary relief for primary caregivers as needed to ensure that the disease does not overshadow your life. Our experienced in-home health care team will make sure that the needs of your loved one are attended to.
In the early stages of dementia, it is possible for an individual to live a relatively normal life. They are typically able to complete day to day tasks such as bathing, changing, and feeding themselves. They may even continue to drive or go out on their own without much difficulties. However, over time the symptoms of dementia will begin to increase in severity. You may notice significant changes in their personality, frequent mood swings or outbursts, increased forgetfulness or confusion, and loss of coordination. As the disease progresses, the level of care an individual with dementia will need also changes. Whether your loved one requires occasional assistance with bathing and changing or needs 24/7 supervision, our in-home health care team can help.
Around the Clock Care
Those with late stage dementia often need extensive assistance with basic self-care. Furthermore, they may start to behave erratically, which can affect their health and safety. Our company provides around-the-clock care for those who are suffering from severe dementia to ensure that they receive proper supervision and assistance. We tailor our in-home care services to meet your needs and deliver the degree of care that is best for each individual based on the severity of their illness and the extent of help they need with their self-care.
Being the primary caregiver for an individual with dementia or Alzheimer’s can take a toll on your personal life as well as your mental well-being.

The goal of our in-home health care service is to provide relief for caregivers as well as ensure that our client’s basic needs are being met.
