Dementia Care at Home

Providing superior home health care for your aging parent or loved one. Stay in Place Senior Care is a Canadian owned, family run business offering a personalized approach to your elderly care needs. Seeking home care can be a very difficult and demanding task.

Our certified caregivers support and nurture our clients’ need for independence, regardless of physical or cognitive ability. It is our mission to give clients and families comfort knowing that assisted living is being delivered with compassion, dignity and respect. Together we work with families, clients and caregivers to develop and execute a care plan that best suits your needs. Communication with our caregivers is our priority to ensure care is precise and up to date.

About 61% of seniors with dementia in Canada live at home — and they require support while staying there.

There are approximately 5.8 million seniors in Canada and about 5.5 million live at home. CIHI analysis finds that of the estimated 431,000 seniors living with dementia in 2015–2016, more than 261,000 were estimated to reside outside of publicly funded long-term care or nursing homes.

“Canadians living with dementia want to maintain their independence; they want to live at home and engage with their community,” said Pauline Tardif, CEO of the Alzheimer Society of Canada.Comprehensive home and community care is an essential part of this equation. It helps maintain quality of life for people with dementia while also providing needed support for caregivers.”(1)

What is Included in Dementia Home Care Services?

In-Home Memory Care May Include Things Like:

Conversation

Stay In Place PSWs provide seniors companionship and conversation. Sometimes that looks like simply sitting down to share a meal together. Socialization enhances the health, happiness and quality of life of seniors.

Meal Preparation

Stay In Place PSWs make great meals that are warm and nutritious. If clients are able, they can help with meal preparation. The more involved the client, the better!  Many clients do not have the chance to eat a well-balanced meal.  Meal preparation helps seniors get the nutrition they need and keeps them healthy.

Laundry

Grocery Shopping & Running Errands

Transportation

  • Changes in behavior, such as failing to maintain personal hygiene or pay bills on time
  • Disorientation and confusion that puts their physical safety at risk, such as wandering away from home or forgetting the rules of the road while driving
  • Decline in physical health, such as losing weight because they forget to eat or aren’t taking medication properly
