Memory Care Services for Those You Love
Helping Hand Nursing Services understands the difficulties of having a loved one suffer from dementia and Alzheimer’s, and we have utilize a holistic approach to memory care which is the underlying philosophy of the Alzheimer's Association.
Research has proven that the quality of Dementia Care depends upon the quality of the assessment and care plan. Care begins with a Complimentary Nursing Assessment to learn more about your loved one’s routines, past interests, preferences, activities, and concurrent medical conditions. After completing the assessment, a nurse will develop a personalized care plan that follows evidence-based Dementia Care guidelines.
Helping Hand uses compassionate caregivers who have the experience and training needed to properly care for your loved one. Our caregivers develop a relationship with your loved one that promotes effective and empathic communication with the belief of “doing with is more important than doing for”. At Helping Hand, we know the importance of having an on-going relationship with the same caregiver(s) and do not limit our caregivers’ work hours or charge overtime.
The challenges of living with Dementia change over time and therefore, the care plan must be modified to meet the continual changing needs of your loved one. Our caregivers communicate status updates of your loved one with our nurses through a dedicated phone line and a specialized mobile application. The collection and dissemination of this ever-changing information is essential to maintaining the highest quality of care.

Dementia Home Care Services
Helping Hand’s memory care services have been developed to cover all aspects of care involving an individual experiencing dementia. We utilize professional caregivers who are skilled and highly experienced in caring for adults with cognitive issues. They are prepared to deal with any and all circumstances that might arise when caring for seniors suffering from dementia.
The challenges of living with dementia or other causes of cognitive decline change over time. Helping Hand’s in-home care for dementia patients is tailored to meet each individual's needs and adapt to their changing circumstances. Our caregivers are in constant communication with our nurse administrator, who is a registered nurse (RN) and Critical Care registered nurse (CCRN) with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing. She has over 35 years of experience in geriatric nursing and care coordination. If there is any change with you or your loved one’s status, that information is quickly conveyed to our nurse administrator, so your home care plan can be modified to accommodate such changes. Additionally, Helping Hand tries to account for any developments that may arise when performing in-home care for dementia patients through Nurse Guided Care.
