Caring Within "Their" World
Our home care for the cognitively impaired elderly in Greater San Diego, CA, is specifically tailored for seniors who are living with dementia, Alzheimer's disease, and other forms of memory impairment. This specific program is called Cognitive Care Companion and is part of what makes Keepsake Companions’ work so personal.
We strive to help our clients to live comfortably within their world, increase their quality of life, and maintain their dignity. Our talented caregivers have the knowledge, skills, and patience to meet these challenges.
We also require our Cognitive Care Companions to have that special something deep inside themselves—the combination of drive, compassion, and courage that allows them to "cheerfully" assist someone whose memory is flickering or fading... even when their own heart is breaking.
In addition, to create a comforts zone for our clients, we incorporate the activities, preferences, and history of seniors into the current care plan. By offering home care for the cognitively impaired elderly in this manner, it allows seniors to maintain a sense of control and familiarity over their lives. Supporting these two factors of any individual’s life plays a major part in the success of our work for your family and loved one.
