What types of companies provide outside care for Assisted Living residents?
Home health companies, hospices, physical therapists, and other providers service an extra layer of needs and expertise that your loved one can benefit from while living in a memory care residence. These services can be an important part of your loved one's care plan. Some companies even provide several of these services in one place.
For example, home health care companies often have nurses, physical therapists, home health aides, companions, dementia therapists, and others on staff. A person in the late stage of Alzheimer’s disease often requires 24-hour assistance. Hospice can provide important late-stage care for Alzheimer's patients and those with all forms of dementia. Those late-stage care services can include pain management, symptom management, counseling for families, and even spiritual support.
This is why we partner with a handful of outstanding providers near Decatur, IL that specialize in supplemental Alzheimer's care services. These providers are integral parts of our quality care team at The Creeks.
