Dementia is caused by damage to brain cells by diseases such as Alzheimer's disease or stroke or even lifestyle choices like smoking and alcohol consumption.
Ensuring the well-being of a loved one with dementia requires specialized care, understanding, and a compassionate touch. At The Care Company, we recognize the unique challenges that come with caring for individuals facing cognitive impairments like Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia.
Our dedicated team of skilled dementia caregivers is here to provide comprehensive and personalized support for people with dementia, fostering a safe and comforting environment in the familiar surroundings of their own homes.
How Can a Professional Dementia Caregiver Help?
Dementia, often resulting from diseases like Alzheimer's or a stroke, can present a range of difficulties for both the individual and their families. That's where our expertise comes into play. We believe that dementia care should never be one-size-fits-all.
Our care specialists get to know each individual and customize our care according to their unique needs and interests. We review and modify care plans regularly to ensure we’re always providing the right level of care now and proactively planning for changing needs.
The Gentle Persuasive Approach
One key aspect of our Alzheimer’s home care services is The Gentle Persuasive Approach (GPA), an innovative dementia care education curriculum designed for interdisciplinary point-of-care staff across various healthcare sectors. Our dementia caregivers undergo rigorous training in GPA, ensuring they are well-equipped to provide person-centered care.
The GPA program is evidence-based, interactive, and practical, focusing on understanding responsive behaviors and promoting effective responses in a workplace setting. Certified Coaches guide our caregivers through the program, teaching them respectful self-protective and gentle redirection techniques for situations of risk.
What sets GPA apart is its multidisciplinary and comprehensive nature. This unique program covers four modules:
An Introduction to Personhood
Brain and Behaviour
The Interpersonal Environment
Gentle Persuasive Techniques for Respectful Self-Protection
This holistic approach ensures that our caregivers are skilled in providing physical assistance and understanding the emotional and psychological aspects of dementia care.
