Aleph Home Care provides a safe environment

Aleph Home Care provides a high-quality safe environment that allows you or your loved one to age with dignity at home. Aleph helps so many people, and here is one of their stories:

Aleph first met Mrs. C the day she was diagnosed with Frontal Temporal Dementia. She was confused and could not put a full thought into words, drive, or prepare dinner. In short, she could not really be left alone. Aleph suggested companion care five days a week while Mrs. C’s husband was at work.

After a period of adjustment, Mrs. C got used to being with her Aleph companion and they were able to go places and do different activities together. However, when her husband was home, Mrs. C would continually follow him around and constantly ask questions.

“This is the worst disease,” her husband said. “I look at my wife and I expect her to say the things she always did because she looks like she always did. The reality is she is gone.”

Unfortunately, Mrs. C suffered a fall and ended up in the hospital with a fractured hip. Aleph was with her the entire time she was in the hospital and rehab facility. But this event showed her family that she needed the benefits of a memory care center that was best equipped to care for her.

While this story does not have a fairytale ending, we wanted to share it because Aleph Home Care was able to help this family during a difficult time. Aleph home care provides care from 1 hour to 24 hours/7 days a week, and live-in care.
