There are several stages of dementia. One needs to be aware of which stage their loved one is in to make a well-informed decision on the best care option for them. The diagnosis is usually the first stage, the next stage is early dementia, followed by middle, and late caregiving. With each stage, the dementia patient’s needs increase. The patient may experience frustration, anxiety, and depression in the later stages.
Once the phase is determined, there are several services available in Idaho Falls that you can utilize to get affordable care.
When To Consider Memory Care
Although forgetfulness is a common sign of natural aging, signs of dementia and alzheimers are a little bit different. Some common signs include:
- Becoming disoriented in location or time
- Memory loss affecting day to day tasks
- Impaired judgment
- Misplacing things
- Difficulty with abstract thinking
As dementia progresses and continues to worsen, your loved one may become agitated with their current environment. Moving them to a smaller facility with more structure and personalized care, involving activities with peers, can help your loved one to increase their confidence and gain a sense of control and accomplishment. Your family member will be able to live a fulfilling life while making meaningful connections and ensuring their safety.
Personalized Care Plan
Every case of Dementia is different. Each case will vary greatly depending on which stage the patient is dealing with, and how long they have had it. Because each patient’s needs are so unique, the Gables offers a customized care plan. Each patient’s plan will address needs for physical, social, and emotional well-being. We will work closely with the patient’s family and greatly take into consideration their concerns and wishes as their loved ones progress through stages of dementia.

One area we specialize in is providing care for those with Dementia and Alzheimers through in-home care. We understand the difficult position that you are in with making sure your loved one gets the most excellent care possible, and we want to be the ones to help your loved one to live as independently as possible for as long as possible while ensuring their safety. In-home care is just that- maintaining independence at home where you are the most comfortable. Our caregivers will come to your loved ones home and can provide a range of care.
Companion care is the least level of care needed. This allows for the elderly to age without feeling lonely. Companion care is right for your loved one if they are still able to do things on their own such as dress themselves and bathe, but are needing some extra love and attention. Companion care provides:
- A listening ear and good conversations
- Mental stimulation
- Meal preparation and diet monitoring
- Cosmetic assistance
- Observance for injuries
- Non-emergency help
- Reminders for daily living activities
- Transportation to appointments
This type of care is for those who require more hands-on assistance with daily tasks such as showering, getting dressed, eating, using the restroom, etc. We never want you to have to worry about being unable to do something due to physical limitations. Our excellent caregivers will come to your home and help your loved one with whatever they need to have an enjoyable and fulfilling day.
Living in a messy home can cause stress, as well as can be dangerous and pose fall risks. You can add housework care to whatever service we are already providing you if you’d like, or it can be the only service you use. Our care providers can give your loved ones home the deep clean that you need, as often as desired.
