Assistance for Senior Patients Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or Dementia
The Alzheimer’s Association reports nearly 6.5 million Americans were living with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia as of 2022. A progressive disease that destroys memory and other key mental functions, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia impact not only the senior patient but the entire family, which is where Amada Southern Fairfax County comes in.

Help at Home to Manage Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease
There is still much to know about Parkinson’s disease, for which there is no cure. Parkinson’s is a brain disorder that manifests in shaking, stiffness, difficulty walking and talking, and balance and coordination issues. The symptoms of Parkinson’s typically begin on a gradual basis worsen over time, so families can expect that a loved one diagnosed with the disease will need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) at some stage of this progressive disease. The professional caregivers at Amada Southern Fairfax County are trained and well-versed in how to assist seniors and other adults who are managing life with Parkinson’s. They can help adapt the home environment, help monitor systems and communicate changes to the care team and family members, provide medication reminders, assist with prescribed exercises, and much more.
In-Home Support Following Cancer Treatment or Surgery
With cancer, treatments and prognoses vary, and comprehensive support and encouragement throughout the process is something in which Amada Southern Fairfax County caregivers excel. The care team at Amada Southern Fairfax County understands that after receiving treatment, many cancer patients need immediate support once they are discharged from the hospital and some might need ongoing support. Our transitional caregiving option provides four hours of immediate caregiver support to ensure patients transition safely from hospital to home after surgery or cancer treatments.
Assistance for Adults and Seniors Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Family caregivers of a loved one with MS have much in common with family caregivers of Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. There will be many emotionally and spiritually rewarding experiences in providing necessary care to a loved one. Since MS also can be unpredictable day-to-day, family caregivers on this journey with their loved one also will experience exhausting challenges. Multiple Sclerosis is a progressive disease that can start in one’s 20s, 30s, 40s or later and impacts the central nervous system. Adults who have been diagnosed with MS likely will need support to help manage symptoms, especially in later stages of the disease. Being the condition can be unpredictable makes it difficult to determine what assistance an MS patient will need from one week to next. Whatever the situation, know that the members of our Amada Southern Fairfax County care team can provide the skills, motivation and compassion to help our adult clients with MS carry out ADLs (activities of daily living) and maintain an excellent quality of life—something we are expert at providing.
