Alzheimer's, dementia care
After an Alzheimer’s or dementia disease diagnosis, you believe the best care for your loved one is at home in familiar surroundings with less disruption in routines resulting in reduced confusion. Like the majority of devoted family caregivers, you take on the role of providing Alzheimer's care. As a primary caregiver for someone with the disease, the effort begins to take a toll on your own physical and emotional health, family life and career. Families with the best intentions simply "burn out". Neglecting other responsibilities, lacking confidence in caregiving skills, and resenting demands placed on your time, are a few predominate feelings experienced.
As the day-to-day demands increase, you seek respite care, but no one seems to understand the specialized needs of your loved one. Looking for providers with dementia care experience is often challenging and frustrating.
Alivia Medical Inc. recognizes the importance of understanding and supporting those living with Alzheimer's disease and other dementia illnesses.

We work with you to establish safe and more comfortable environments, trusting relationships and techniques to maximize independence for as long as possible for those with Alzheimer's disease.
