Thoughtful Care believes that caring for someone who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia should be based on the fact that there is still a person in there, and they deserve to be treated with dignity, respect and care. We use this belief in the interview process for our caregivers.
Not only do our professionals have up to 25+ years of cognitive care experience, they must also express the same level of understanding about what constitutes quality senior care. With the added services of mental and physical activities to help aid your loved one, we provide much more than the basics of care, such as light housekeeping, cooking and errands. We do not believe that a television should be the primary tool in care.
Our caregivers are our employees, and undergo extensive background checks. We are fully insured and bonded, and all employees come to you with letters of recommendation.
Teri Sandbothe, Thoughtful Care Caregiver
Teri has been a senior caregiver for more than five years, and in that time, she’s seen the immense benefit of in-home care for those struggling with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. “I feel as long as you can safely keep and care for someone in a familiar environment, they will thrive,” says Teri. “The most rewarding part of this job is being able to make a day better for someone else.”
