Our geriatric care managers, social workers and registered nurse consultants, provide professional expertise, guidance and support, throughout the dementia caregivers journey.

Identifying the Problems. Finding the Solutions.

The Alzheimer's Geriatric Assessment

The primary goal of the Alzheimer’s Geriatric Assessment is to clearly identify the problems and recommend appropriate, realistic solutions that improve the quality of life for the Alzheimer’s caregiver and the care receiver.

The clinical assessment includes a review of the patients physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs as well as cognitive function; ability to complete their activities of daily living and instrumental activities of daily living, as well as a complete fall prevention and home safety evaluation.

Based on the assessment, the Geriatric Care Manager develops a custom Plan of Care. She then works with the Caregiver and the family every step of the way to implement, monitor and update the plan as needed.

Geriatric Care ManaementFamilies can become overwhelmed with the challenges that accompany caring  for someone with Alzheimer’s disease, and they often don’t know where to begin.

The primary goal of our Geriatric Care Management  service is to clearly identify the problems, and recommend appropriate, realistic solutions, that improve the quality of life for the Alzheimer’s caregiver and the care receiver.

Alzheimer's Help Line West Palm Beach

Caregivers and family members of those with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other cognitive impairment never have to go through a crisis alone.

We provide local caregivers and families with counseling, coaching, guidance, support, and dementia specific resources to help you cope with the challenges of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

Medication Management

Properly managing the medications for someone with Alzheimer’s disease is a difficult task made even more complex when the patient is under the care of numerous physicians, all of whom are prescribing one, two or even three different medications.

Couple this with the fact that most caregivers find it difficult, if not impossible, to convince the person with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia to take their pills, in the correct dose, and at the correct time, caregivers can become angry, frustrated, and sometimes, just give up. We can help!

Alzheimer's Training and EducationThe Alzheimer’s Care Resource Center provides education and training to individuals, caregivers, and family members, both online and in person.

Our Learning Lighthouse Resource Library is also available to the Alzheimer’s community and is filled with books, DVD’s, brochures and other dementia specific information and resources all designed to help you provide the very best care to your loved one.

 As Alzheimer’s disease progresses, the Care Navigators at the Alzheimer’s Care Resource Center continue to work with caregivers to keep their loved one at home, while maintaining their desire to allow the person with dementia to live in the least restrictive, yet safest environment possible.

 

 

Assistance-with-PlacementMost families want to do everything they can to keep the person with Alzheimer’s disease at home;  but if the time comes when living at home is no longer an option, your Care Navigator will help you select the very best assisted living facility or nursing home based on your needs and the needs of your loved one.

Long Distance Caregiving Solutions

Everything’s fine – and then something happens. A doctor calls in the middle of the night to say that your older parent 3,000 miles away has fallen and has been hospitalized. Or your mother, who lives several states away, calls to say she can no longer cope with your father’s dementia.

Many adult children must help from a distance when their older parents and other relatives need help. The task can be difficult, stressful, and time consuming. Our Care Navigators can help!
