Familiar Environment

Assessing one in their home provides a familiar and comfortable setting, reducing anxiety that might arise in an unfamiliar setting. This allows for accurate observation of daily routines and behavior.

Personalized & Comprehensive Evaluation

A thorough assessment takes the living situation and social support into consideration. These are essential factors in understanding the impact of dementia on daily life.

Enhanced Observation

Observation on how one interacts with their family members and surroundings provides valuable insights into their cognitive abilities, behavior changes and functional limitations.

Tailored Care Plan

A personalized care plan addresses the specific needs and challenges. Recommendations may include medical management, cognitive and physical stimulation, and support services.

Family Involvement

Family members or caregivers can be involved during the assessment which allows for direct education; empowering families to better support their loved one.

Safety Assessment

A home environment assessment looks for potential safety risks and recommends a safe living space that maximizes the person’s independence.

Reduced Disruption

Having the assessment conducted at home minimizes disruptions and maintains a supportive atmosphere reducing the chance for increased confusion or agitation.

Holistic Approach

These assessments consider the person’s physical, emotional, and social well-being, leading to a holistic understanding of the condition and care requirements.

Success Story

Discover the inspiring journey of our client, living with dementia, who is successfully aging in place with a family caregiver.  Faced with cognitive decline and unexpected agitation, the family caregiver was considering moving their loved one out of the home.  

Wellness Strategies Group designed personalized dementia care solutions. The caregiver implemented one of our data collection tools, enabling us to work with the healthcare provider to make adjustments to medications for optimal dose and time.  The caregiver received techniques, including effective verbal and non-verbal communication strategies, and how to respond during times of agitation.  These moments have been reduced, and the caregiver is now able to skillfully de-escalate the situation.  

Together, we transformed challenges into triumphs, enhancing the well-being of both the client and the caregiver.  We are so proud of this caregiver’s resilience!
