The Best Alzheimer's Care Has A Plan, Says Sylvania Home Health Care Provider

Friends of the Family Home Health Care has a unique approach to caring for those diagnosed with Alzheimer's. It starts with a specific plan designed around catering to the needs of the individual.

Family members of those diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease are often at a loss of what to do in order to ensure that the best care is provided for their loved ones, while still providing an at-home environment that allows a meaningful, quality of life.

Beth Anne Varney, Care Coordinator and Dementia Specialist for Friends of the Family Home Health Care, believes the best form of care begins with acknowledging the individuality of each patient. And then creating a system and environment of care around the specific needs and desires of that individual, rather than focusing exclusively on the symptoms of the disease.

In describing the company’s approach to client care, Varney stated: ”We begin by assessing the individual and their entire environment: his or her likes and dislikes. We look for ways we can make each person feel comfortable while still providing the level of care that’s needed.”

The home health care organization, headquartered in Sylvania OH, provides in-home care for individuals with a variety of needs. Varney coordinates the activities of all the organization’s individual home care providers. But she is especially passionate about the specialized care for Demntia patients.

Varney added, “Alzheimer's is one of eleven different, common classifications of Dementia and several have very similar symptoms. Since no two cases are alike, it’s important that a Neurologist makes an accurate diagnosis. We provide the medical staff any information we can toward that end. But our main focus is catering to the needs of each individual patient and their family members.”

The organization is able to conduct Dementia Testing, including Reality Comprehension Clock Test (RCCT), a standardized, cognitive assessment. The results of which can then be given to the patient’s doctor to use as a tool in diagnosis as well as developing an optimum treatment strategy specific to the patient.

Friends of the Family Home Health Care works in conjunction with the Alzheimer's Association in Toledo Ohio.
