For millions of older Americans in need of day-to-day care and assistance, friends and family members play an important role in furnishing the care required to allow their friends and loved ones to continue to reside in the comfort and familiar surroundings of their own homes. Endeavor Senior In-Home Care of Mesa, Arizona, now has a useful tool on its website that links caregivers to the Family Learning Center where they can access courses, quick tips and videos covering a variety of topics of interest to caregivers.

“We built our company to bring a new level of freedom to seniors and others who through the aging process or other factors need daily assistance but do not want to lose the freedom associated with living at home,” according to Endeavor Senior In-Home Care Founder Dave Rodgers. “The Family Learning Center is our way of recognizing the contribution family members and friends are making to the lives of the people they are helping.”

Visitors to the Endeavor website can access a link to the Family Learning Center listed under the “Services” tab. An easy to complete registration process gives caregivers access to more than 50 self-paced courses, videos and other resources offered at no cost to the user. Included in the course offerings are caregiver training for those caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia, safety and fall prevention, meal preparation and nutrition, and managing medications.

Endeavor In-Home Care has also included materials in the Family Learning Center focusing on the needs of the caregivers who have undertaken a role that can be as stressful as it is rewarding. Visitors to the resource center will find tips and information about dealing with caregiver stress and balancing the role of family caregiver with the responsibilities of a career and family.

As some of the Family Learning Center materials mention, the stresses of caring for a friend or family member can affect the caregiver’s physical and emotional health and wellbeing. There might be times when a caregiver needs to step away from the day-to-day responsibilities of caring for another person. Endeavor In-Home Care offers respite care services to provide temporary relief by giving caregivers some much-needed and well-deserved time away from their daily responsibilities. Individuals placed in a person’s home to provide respite care must meet Endeavor’s strict qualification standards and pass a background check. Caregivers are bonded and insured and subjected to the highest level of supervision.

Endeavor’s Management Staff has over 90 years of combined health care experience and is known for putting the client and family needs first and foremost. Simply put, they are Enriching Lives 24/7 one family at a time.

A LOOK AT WANDERING IN PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA

Elder Care

If you have a loved one who has been diagnosed with dementia, you may eventually need to seek senior in-home care assistance. As dementia progresses, patients may no longer be able to feed, clothe, or bathe themselves, and they are at a higher risk of falls, illnesses, injuries, and wandering away from familiar areas. Here is a look at wandering in people with dementia.

What Increases the Risk of Wandering?

If your loved one can no longer remember things accurately, he may be at risk of wandering. Any dementia patient who is mobile, even those who are in the earliest stages of dementia, may become disoriented and confused. Once a doctor has given your loved one a diagnosis of dementia, you should begin planning ahead to lower his risk of wandering and injuries. An elderly in-home care specialist can provide home care assistance that may lower this risk.

What Are the Warning Signs of Wandering?

You should also keep an eye out for the early warning signs of wandering. Speak to your loved one’s doctor about hiring a senior in-home care aide if your loved one begins returning from scheduled activities later than usual, is restless, has trouble locating familiar rooms or places, appears lost in a new environment, or makes repetitive movements or motions with no purpose. Your loved one may also say that he wants to go home, or to another familiar place, when he is already there.

How Can You Prevent Wandering?

You can prevent wandering by working closely with your loved one’s doctor to track and recognize patterns and changes in behavior. You should also be aware of when it is necessary to hire a home care aide or home care assistance. A senior in-home caregiver can monitor your loved one’s activities, assist with medication reminders and chores, and ensure that your loved one remains safe and cared for.

If you’re interested in learning more about in-home assistance in Phoenix, AZ, for a loved one with dementia, come see us at Endeavor Senior In-Home Care. Our experienced, compassionate in-home caregivers will help you determine what level of in-home assistance your loved one needs. Call us today at (877) 584-6162 to speak with a caregiver today.

HOW ARE ENDEAVOR CAREGIVERS SCREENED?

Senior Care services

At Senior In-Home Care, we provide families with licensed, experienced in-home caregivers who provide a range of valuable services to those with illnesses, injuries, dementia, and mobility problems. Our senior in-home caregivers offer companionship, post-surgery support, physical disability support, dementia care, and assistance with daily meal preparation, medication reminders, and light housework.

Each one of our elderly in-home caregivers is carefully screened to ensure they are a perfect fit for our clients. Each senior in-home caregiver must have a valid, up-to-date certification as a home health aide, nurse’s assistance, or medical technician. All of our elderly in-home caregivers must also be CPR and first aid certified. In addition, anyone providing homecare assistance must undergo TB testing. Last but not least, our in-home caregivers undergo thorough background checks to ensure that they do not have any financial or legal problems that would put your family at risk.

If you’re interested in learning more about how we recruit and hire our talented elderly in-home caregivers near Chandler, AZ, come see us at Endeavor Senior In-Home Care. We can quickly find a home caregiver who is the right fit for you and your family. To schedule an appointment, call us today at (877) 584-6162.
