In-Home Memory Care for Seniors 

Taking care of a senior loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia can take its toll on family members. A trained Amada caregiver can help provide much-needed support for managing symptoms, thus improving the quality of life for dementia seniors and their families.

 

Are you in need of professional in-home care for a loved one with Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Lewy Body dementia or another type of dementia? The professional senior care team at Amada Naples is here to help you find up to 24-hour memory care services in Bonita Springs, Naples, Fort Myers and other Southwest Florida communities. “There are about 150 forms of dementia,” notes Amada Naples owner Craig Castillo. “Staying up to date on research and developments is key to Amada Naples providing appropriate, outstanding care.”

Long-term care for a sufferer of Alzheimer’s or dementia is a necessity, being that it is an incurable disease that affects the afflicted senior’s cognitive, physical and functional abilities. The symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia worsen over time, eventually limiting the patient’s ability to carry out activities of daily living (ADLs) and requiring 24-hour memory care. At Amada Naples Fl, we can help you and your family make the best memory care choice for your senior loved one. Please contact us today for a Free Care Needs Consultation
