ALZHEIMER/ DEMENTIA CARE
Professional. Reliable. Qualified Caregivers
This is a very unique and specialized field in our services. To care for persons with Alzheimer or any other type of dementia requires our Caregiver to posses certain personality, approach, knowledge, understanding and experience. Many of us have a tendency of thinking about our parents or loved one requiring care as a child. By thinking this way we run risk of treating them like a child. Our team knows well that even though a dementia patient might be retiring too early in terms of ability, they still have the spirit and soul that, if treated without dignity could be easily broken.
24 HOUR LIVE-IN CARE
Service You Can Trust
West Coast In -Home Care specializes in providing 24 hour live-in care to our clients. Many of our clients require 24 hour live-in care due to not being able to safely remain at home on their own. With a bit of assistance and help it is possible for those individuals to age, heal, and recover in the place they love so much – home. Since 24 hour live-in care requires a lot of supervision and monitoring, we have a specialized team working on just those assignments, making sure the client's household is managed without disturbances and that the client remains in a clean and healthy environment. Our team is reporting to the client family and medical health authorities on a regular basis providing them with updates on the client’s health, well being and the household activities.

This service is offered to our clients that need full support or just require an extra set of hands with maintaining their daily personal hygiene and health. Our Caregivers who perform even a minimal amount of personal care must possess one of the certificates: RCA (Residential Care Attendant), Nursing Aid, RN or LPN. We are also proud to employ practicing or retired midwives that are proven to be one of the most gentle personal care assistants.
During our initial assessment, it is very important to find out from the client, their family, primary caregiver or health authorities what is important to them to improve social and physical activities. Many clients of ours may feel a bit lonely or depressed when losing a loved one, when family lives far away or if there are limitations such as loss of driver license, mobility or weather conditions. In those cases we are more than happy to present to our clients the opportunity to use some of the companionship services we are offering.
