The first step to achieving quality care for your loved one may be as simple as asking the right questions.
When faced with the realization that your loved one is developing signs of dementia, you may feel overwhelmed and anxious about what to do next. My advice to you is don’t panic. There are many resources within your community that will help you find the information and tools you need to achieve the best quality care for your loved one. It’s all about asking the right questions and taking the time to find the answers that you need.
Here are some questions you should ask:
Once you begin to ask these questions and look for the answers you need, you will have a much better idea of how you can help your loved one manage their dementia and continue living a happy, independent life. You may find that services such as those offered by Seniors for Seniors may be able to fill some of the gaps by providing assistance in areas where your loved one needs it most. Knowing that your loved one is well taken care of can provide you with peace of mind and relieve some of the anxiety you may be feeling about their condition.
By asking the necessary questions and finding the information you require to ensure the right amount of help is in place, you may be pleasantly surprised by how much more manageable your loved one’s dementia can become.

I have always been so impressed by the passion and commitment of our employees. From the companions that I work with everyday in Simcoe-Muskoka, to those who looked after my Aunt in Toronto, each and every one has provided outstanding care to their clients.
