Caring for a Parent with Dementia at Home

Caring for a parent with dementia at home can be a challenging yet rewarding experience. It requires patience, compassion, and adaptability to meet the changing needs of your loved one. By establishing a routine and creating a safe, familiar environment, you can help reduce confusion and anxiety. It's essential to educate yourself about dementia and its progression, as well as seek support from healthcare professionals, support groups, or respite care services to prevent burnout. This is where Tembo Health comes in as a support system for you the caregiver.

What is a Dementia Care Plan?

A dementia care plan is a comprehensive strategy designed to address the specific needs and challenges faced by individuals living with dementia. It typically includes medical care, cognitive therapies, physical activities, and emotional support tailored to the individual's unique symptoms and stage of the disease. Tembo Health specializes in helping clients develop personalized care plans that meet their needs, drawing on a team of professionals such as care navigators, behavioral specialists, and emergency physicians. Working alongside the client's primary physician, Tembo Health ensures a collaborative approach to care that considers the whole person.
