Well one thing that's really important to point out is a lot of times the care is being provided for that Azheimer's patient by a loved one by a family member . It's around the clock care so they get wore out. They get tired. They get stressed...and so we can provide respite care," said Jennifer Livermore from Brightstar Home Care Services.
"We can come in and care for their loved one so they can have a break. They can go do what they need to do, for their own mental health and kinda have that break so they can be refreshed to come back and be ready to take care of their loved one. And again we can do around the clock care if that is what is needed as well."
"It's very important to note that with Alzheimer's dementia patients, in caring for them, it's very important to keep them active and so not only would respite be provided but we have specific plans that we put together on how to keep Alzheimer's patients active," Livermore said
