A dedicated support system is essential, and Elders 1st, Inc. can help you deal with many challenges you face.

Our caregivers are adept at keeping the patient's mind stimulated. This is important as studies have found that Alzheimer's and Dementia progress is slower in those who stay mentally active. We have a toolbox full of activities specially designed for those with Dementia and Alzheimer's. Sadly, institutional settings rarely offer this level of activity, often resulting in rapid decline. You can have peace of mind knowing you will receive the most experienced and well-trained staff.
We also, offer in-home specialized Hospice care for those patients who are terminally ill by providing caregivers that will make the patients more comfortable, and peaceful at a time when they most need it.
Our caregivers use communication skills effectively. They are trained in customer service techniques, which is often lacking in other agencies. This is something that sadly, other nursing agencies forget about. Giving good care is not enough if you don't know how to communicate effectively.
