When a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia, you and your family members will want to provide them with the best care possible. While you may first think that a nursing home is the only solution, our WellSprings caregivers serving Exton, King of Prussia, West Chester and surrounding areas, can help.
An Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis is a time to ensure that your loved one’s health and mental state does not debilitate their quality of life, which is why home care may be the best answer. Our services will keep your loved one comfortable in their own home, and inhibit stress and confusion that moving could cause.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Services
It may seem stressful at first when faced with a parent or close relative who is afflicted with dementia or Alzheimer’s – it certainly changes not just their normal routines, but yours, as well.
Our caregivers at WellSprings understand the serious nature of Alzheimer’s and dementia, and the traumatic effect it can have on family members. That’s why we’ll provide an honest, personal assessment of what exactly your loved one will need from us on a daily basis.
Our services will relieve some of the anxiety or worry placed upon you. Once you meet with one of our staff members, you’ll know that you have a team of experienced and empathetic caregivers who have knowledge and education in the diseases to provide optimum care.

Choosing Home Care for Your Loved One
Allowing your loved one to stay in their comfort of his or her own home and familiar surroundings will not only reduce the stress that is already impending from Alzheimer’s or dementia, but it will give you peace of mind that they’re safe and cared for, as well.
Moving to a nursing home may cause confusion or anxiety in your loved one, which can be eliminated when you opt for home care. With the services our caregivers offer, your loved one will be monitored at all times, without feeling the impact of a relocation or complete life change.
Our caregivers are trained and educated regularly on Alzheimer’s and dementia, and can define the emotional or physical triggers that can alarm someone who is afflicted. Especially with personal, round-the-clock care, this is crucial to ensuring as normal a life as possible.
