Capital City Nurses Announces Alzheimer's and Dementia Care for Columbia, MD Seniors and Families

Capital City Nurses is proud to announce that we have extended our area of service to provide Alzheimer's and dementia services and support for seniors and families throughout Columbia, MD and the surrounding areas. Our Alzheimer's and dementia care services are specialized to meet the needs of every individual, and our treatment plans are monitored and assessed over time as our patients’ needs change.

With the support of the in-home nursing care offered by the professionals at Capital City Nurses, families have the support and assistance they need to safely keep their elderly parents in their home for as long as possible. As the main concern for individuals with Alzheimer's and dementia is always safety, our home care assistance ensures seniors are never left without services and support.

Special Home Care giving Services for Alzheimer's and Dementia Patients in Columbia, MD

When working with a new patient, our first step is to complete a full evaluation and assessment. This is done by one of our RNs working at our home care agency in Columbia, MD.The nurse assesses all aspects of the senior's health, while also becoming familiar with the goals and possible concerns of the family.

This comprehensive assessment allows the team to develop a personalized,effective, and complete treatment plan. Our home care assistance services are developed based on the needs of the patient. As Alzheimer's and dementia patients' needs will change over time, we continually monitor and assess to provide extra services and support as they become necessary.

Our services include general support around the home or in the assisted living facility. We also offer rehab and post-op care,allowing the senior to work with a trusted and known in-home nursing care specialist.

We also help the family set routines and structures that help patients with Alzheimer's and dementia have predictability in their lives. Our staff spends time with the patient by playing games, having conversations, and engaging with them to help reduce the risk of depression. These interactions have been shown to help slow the progression of symptoms and retain memory. Social interactions are also linked to a stronger sense of self-worth, a better overall diet,and increased willingness to be around people.

Why is It Important to Take Care of Alzheimer's and Dementia Patients on Time?

At Capital City Nurses, we talk to families about the importance of companionship care as soon assigns of Alzheimer's or dementia are noticed. If left untreated or if seniors are left alone, there is an increased risk of an accident or injury, and often, a more rapid progression of the disease.

As seniors become more isolated with the progressive symptoms of Alzheimer's and dementia, memory loss, depression, and associated health conditions are more likely to become problematic.
