Alzheimer Care FAQs
What is Alzheimer’s home care?
Alzheimer’s home care includes a range of services provided in the home instead of in a hospital. Home care includes personal care, housekeeping assistance, nursing services, wellness visits, companionship, and more.
How does Alzheimer’s home care help your loved one?
People with Alzheimer’s can benefit greatly from home care because they are in familiar and comfortable surroundings. Often, family members and friends become caregivers for their loved one with Alzheimer’s. Professional support ensures that the home is safe and that caregivers receive a much-needed break to take care of themselves and be able to spend quality time with their loved one.
Who receives Alzheimer’s home care?
Although Alzheimer’s generally affects seniors, anyone at any age who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s can receive home care services.
How long does Alzheimer’s home care last?
Alzheimer’s home care can last for as long as you need the services. This can be a consistent schedule customized to your needs or the occasional respite care for other caregivers.
Is Alzheimer’s home care covered by insurance?
Yes, some personal insurance plans may cover the cost of nursing care. Please call your insurance company to find out more. Please call 587-500-4455 if you want to find out how our home care cost can be covered by Alberta Health Services.
