Coping with a progressive condition requires patience, empathy and love. Our specially trained caregivers on Alzheimer's disease and other dementias can help provide just that for your family. Warm, familiar surroundings can play such an important role in managing cognitive diseases and enhancing quality of life.
We understand that caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's can be a difficult journey for you and your family. It's a disease that requires specialized care and attention, and we recognize how challenging it can be to provide the care and support your loved one needs. Warm, familiar surroundings can play such an important role in managing cognitive diseases and enhancing quality of life.
At Home Instead Vancouver, we offer compassionate and quality home care services that are tailored to meet the unique needs of your loved one. A study by the Alzheimer's Association found that loved ones with Alzheimer's who received in-home care had significantly better physical function, less depression, and fewer hospitalizations compared to those who received care in a nursing home.
Our goal is to help your loved one age in place while ensuring their safety, comfort, and overall well-being, so you can focus on spending quality time and creating meaningful memories together.
