Williston, VT -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/01/2019 -- Every 65 seconds, someone in the United States is diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, a highly-common form of dementia that affects more than 5.7 million Americans. Griswold Home Care offers live-in senior care in Chittenden County and the surrounding areas for individuals in Northern Vermont living with various forms of dementia.

The caregivers at Griswold Home Care understand the patience that is necessary when it comes to caring for people living with dementia. Dementia sufferers can often become frustrated, uneasy, or emotionally upset when they begin to cope with newfound difficulty associated with concentration, recalling memories, or carrying out different, simple tasks that they knew how to do in the past. As the disease progresses, they may become more and more disassociated and completely unable to care for themselves.

Griswold's experienced caregivers offer assistance to people with Alzheimer's or dementia in an environment that is familiar to them — their home. This assistance will not only help them carry out day-to-day tasks; it will also allow their family to take a break from providing care and return to the other parts of their life.

As Alzheimer's and other dementia-related diseases affect cognition and memory, it's important for families to have a caregiver who is familiar with the challenges that victims of the disease face. Griswold Home Care's experienced caregivers know and practice many of the subtleties that they may need to reinforce — such as introducing themselves every day. They are skilled in performing tasks and exercises that stimulate short-term memory, and they have a strong understanding as to the correct approach necessary to encourage and cue clients in tasks such as eating and getting dressed.
