Catalina works with our clients to manage preventable fall risks by providing assistance with activities like showering or climbing stairs. Additionally, the nurse will make suggestions for home safety as needs change.
Catalina is very experienced in managing and caring for clients with any level of confusion, dementia, and Alzheimer’s. Our caregivers and nurses act with thoughtful patience and ensure that medication is being taken properly, appointments are not missed, and that clients feel supported.
Changes in health such as loss of mobility, experiencing forgetfulness, or the onset of a chronic condition can be frustrating, scary, or depressing. Caregiving ensures regular socialization and the opportunity to engage with the community. The nurse can recommend tools for coping or managing with health changes or may suggest meeting with a specialist.
