Alzheimer’s takes a devastating toll on caregivers.

Nurses and Company’s private services, powered by honor,  can bring an extra layer of supportive care that helps you feel empowered and helps your family regain comfort and peace of mind. 

How private services can improve quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s

Providing for your loved one’s growing needs can be emotionally draining and physically demanding. Nurses and Company’s caring supportive team brings an extra set of hands-on care for these needs delivered with compassion, dignity and empathy.

  • Medication Management. Although current medications cannot cure Alzheimer’s, your physician may prescribe medications to help lessen symptoms like memory loss and confusion or to help slow the disease progression. Taking these medications in the correct dosage at the prescribed times will be important to your loved one’s quality of life. Alzheimer’s medications can be confusing and difficult to manage. Our team helps with medication reminders and education.
  • Companionship. Alzheimer’s can feel very lonely and isolating. There will be times when your loved one needs additional human connection. Our team can spend time with your loved one offering connection and companionship that can help improve their emotional well being.

Private services help you gain expert help to ensure your loved one’s safety with hands-on help and connection to resources like lift chairs, walkers and hospital beds.
