A person with dementia needs to be treated just like any other person when it comes to deciding how they should be cared for. David Barile, MD of the Princeton University Medical center has come up with a program to try and establish goals for all seniors and can be found at www.goalsofcare.org. His program recommends setting goals as a roadmap to help determine the type of care a online pokies person will receive in their later years.
When it comes to a person with dementia, it is much better to try and establish these goals as early as possible so that they can participate in the planning activity. If the dementia is in an advanced stage, their Power Of Attorney (POA) will most likely be the person who establishes these goals.
In either case, having goals established is very important. It can answer questions such as if the person will receive care at home or go into a facility, or what types of treatment options should be considered.
Home to Stay Senior Care Solutions is owned and operated by the Dubler and Skole Families and was started because of experiences they had with their own Families. In one situation Mom was living alone and had a fall. It was not until this fall that the family realized they were unprepared.
When it was time for their Mom to come home, she needed companion and personal care to assist her and prevent another accident. Like most people in this situation, they were confused and did not know where to go for help. It was this life-changing experience that lead to starting a home care company that is focused on enabling those who wish to stay at home and age in place.
