Ardent Lends a Helping Hand
When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia, the news can be overwhelming . Our staff is trained to know how to best care for your family member who suffers from the disease. A person living with dementia becomes vulnerable. They need special attention and care. The disease affects every aspect of their lives. Individuals with dementia frequently deal with depression and anxiety, they often withdraw from the outside world, and they find it hard to interpret what they see and hear, since their brain affects how their senses perceive things.
Ardent’s trained caregivers help preserve your loved one’s dignity and independence. Before the start of service, an Ardent Care Case Manager creates a individualized service plan for your family member that addresses all the important areas of their care. We also ask the family what specific group activities the client may enjoy. Playing board games, working on puzzles, painting, and drawing are some of the tasks that those with dementia may find rewarding. Encouraging them in this way can enhance their life experience.
Dementia is a progressive disease of the brain that increases in severity over time. Our caregivers are trained to meet your loved one at any stage of the disease they find themselves in. An Ardent Care Manager will change the plan of care, whenever needed, to adapt to the person’s changes related to the disease.
Our caregivers are also trained to care for those with Alzheimer’s disease. We have helped many individuals with dementia by providing client-specific care as well as respite care for the family.
In 2016, Ardent Care participated in the fundraising event called “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” For more information, click here to be taken to their website.
