dynamic individualized schedule that adjusts as the patient’s needs and abilities change
(PRWEB) October 02, 2014
Big Hearts Home Care is excited to announce their alliance with AlzBetter® as a licensee of their program in the Chicagoland.
AlzBetter® is a dementia care management system that provides in home programming and structure for dementia patients. The national company, AlzBetter The Dementia Care Experts©, is based in Cherry Hill, NJ. The AlzBetter® system uses proprietary algorithms, a complete software platform, training videos and custom activities that adapt with the patient as they progress through the disease process. The AlzBetter® system uses these tools to create a dynamic individualized schedule that adjusts as the patient’s needs and abilities change during the progression of the disease. AlzBetter Quality of Life® tool provides feedback on these individualized schedules to ensure their efficiency and also provide quick response via the AlzBetter Dashboard®
The goal of AlzBetter® is to enable independence in the home and create a meaningful day for people with Alzheimer’s and related dementias. Many families are forced to take activities away and even remove their loved ones from the home prematurely and place them in a community setting because of challenges the disease presents. AlzBetter provides a system, software platform and training to empower families and professional caregivers with the necessary tools and education to enable their loved one to continue in the least restrictive setting possible.
According to the most recent World Alzheimer’s Report, published by Alzheimer’s Disease International in the United Kingdom, they cite the immediate need for more person centered care options that are “flexible and offer the opportunity to provide feedback”. Big Hearts Home Care is able to provide this type of care in the Chicagoland market today because of their partnership with AlzBetter®.
Prior to AlzBetter® and this level of in-home programming for Alzheimer’s/dementia patients, there has been a consistent lack of structure for home based dementia care.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association there are over 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s/dementia and every 67 seconds a new person develops the disease.
Big Hearts Home Care is a licensed Illinois Home Care Agency located in Chicago, IL.
