Specialized Care For Your Loved One
At Alpha Home Health Care, we know that when your loved one’s mental abilities start to decline, this is a difficult and often emotional challenge for families. Your loved one will begin to feel vulnerable and need reassurance and support. Alpha’s Registered Care Aides have specialty training in caring for the “mentally fragile” and are skilled in identifying care needs. Cueing techniques encourage bathing assistance, dressing for personal style, nutrition as tastes change, and aid memory if a meal has been taken. Sitting with your loved one, cueing and engaging in social conversation, helps the client with dementia navigate the food on their plate and retain health. Above all, clients with dementia have a quality of life ahead, and a skilled caregiver can help them along this path to retaining their dignity and self-worth.
Alpha’s Registered Care Aides are registered with the BC Care Aide Registry and receive a unique identifying number. The registry is governed by and advisory committee that continually upgrades its standards of competencies. A registered care aide has a diploma or certificate from a recognized school in Canada and has been evaluated in accordance with the registry”s current competencies
We are proud that our care aides have current, and special, training in Alzheimer’s and dementia care. These valued Health Care Assistants are the front-line care providers in a variety of institutional, community, and residential settings. Alpha follows protocols set out by the Vancouver Island Health Authority, which ensures your loved one is receiving the highest level of care possible.
I can’t tell you how much it meant to our family to be able to call on the services of the wonderful people at Alpha. I always knew that when one of your staff members was on duty, my mom would be well cared for. It is very difficult to watch one so close to you, decline in health, cognition and even in physical size. There were times when, without the support of Alpha, I don’t think I could have made it through.Barri Marlatt
