Our clients who suffer from dementia and the medical effects of Alzheimer's disease require specialized and attentive care.
Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) December 14, 2009
Professional HealthCare at Home, the San Francisco Bay Area’s leading provider of total home health care, including nursing, rehab, personal caregiver and hospice services, has expanded its staffing expertise in the care of Alzheimer’s patients. The company now provides in-home caregivers who have been certified by the Alzheimer’s Association Care Academy. “We felt it was important to offer this highly-trained level of expertise among our caregivers,” says John Griscavage, CEO. “Our clients who suffer from dementia and the medical effects of Alzheimer’s disease require specialized and attentive care for their comfort and to ease the stress on family members.”
Training by the Alzheimer’s Association, the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care and support, covers research-based topics on this complex disease. Caregivers gain not only a deeper understanding of the disease and related dementias, they also develop skills for managing challenging behaviors, providing the best personal care, and connecting, both mentally and emotionally, with clients in late stage dementia.
“A loved one with Alzheimer’s disease presents one of the most challenging and difficult care situations for family members,” continues Griscavage. “We are pleased to be able to offer a high level of expert care and support, and are grateful to have the resources of the Alzheimer’s Association Care Academy for staff training and certification.”
