We’re going to take care of some business today. In this post, we’re going to bust some myths about in-home dementia care in Kansas City, Mission Hills, Leawood, Overland Park, Lee’s Summit, North Kansas City, Lenexa, Shawnee, Olathe, and Johnson County. Why? Because Thoughtful Care believes your loved one deserves the best memory care available.
MYTH: My loved one needs to be in a nursing home because we can’t keep him at home.
MYTHBUSTER: Thoughtful Care’s skilled professional caregivers provide attentive, loving in-home Alzheimer’s and dementia care in your home. Your care provider will know all about your loved one and what he needs and when he needs it. We can offer part time help, full-time daytime care, or round-the-clock memory care.
MYTH: We can’t afford in-home care.
MYTHBUSTER: Because we can tailor the amount of time and attention specifically to your loved one’s needs, we can streamline services and the costs of care to help with your specific requirements. Our costs are competitive with dedicated memory care-nursing homes.
MYTH: In-home care really isn’t any better than a nursing home.
MYTHBUSTER: A loved one with memory issues will sleep better in her own bed, will have less stress-related issues when she is at home than she would in a nursing home, and she will receive one-on-one care from a trained caregiver, as opposed to care in a nursing home from different people at different times. Aging at home is preferred by almost 90% of people over the age of 65, according to an AARP Public Policy study.
MYTH: Medications won’t be managed if we have in-home care.
MYTHBUSTER: Our trained professionals will give the proper doses at the proper times with or without meals. Moreover, we have nursing staff available to manage picking up and setting out prescriptions as per your doctor’s recommendation. Don’t let myths keep you from getting the best care for your loved one with memory loss. Contact us today for a free assessment of your family’s needs.
