What is Dementia?
Understanding Alzheimer's Disease
Does Your Loved One Need Help?
Home Care Services Tailored To You
At Compass Homecare, we recognize that every individual with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia has a unique story and set of needs, and we are devoted to honouring their personal journey. Our approach to care is rooted in empathy, respect, and deep understanding. Our highly trained Personal Support Workers (PSWs) and Care Managers are not just health professionals; they are steadfast companions who are committed to enhancing our clients’ lives. With comprehensive assessments, we tailor our services to align with the personal preferences, medical requirements, and lifestyle of each individual.
This custom care plan, rich in detail, aims to optimize quality of life, ensuring safety and security, while fostering as much independence as possible. People possess the extraordinary ability to channel memories from their early life. While names and dates can be difficult for individuals living with dementia, music and stories from their childhood can stimulate their minds in a unique, personal way. Through meaningful activities like listening to music and reading stories from our clients’ early years, we can stimulate their minds further. Additionally, our PSWs engage our client’s minds with stimulating activities like memory games, word searches, card games, puzzles, and others to keep their minds active.
Our dedicated team becomes an extension of our clients’ families, working in harmony to create a nurturing environment that promotes joy, satisfaction, and dignified living. At Compass Homecare, your loved one is our loved one, too.
