Alzheimer's Care Services New York
Compassionate and trustworthy Home Care Services
ACS Home Care LLC grew from the desire to make a difference in the lives of individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Owned and operated by families familiar with the tragedy of Alzheimer's disease, we know how critical it is to understand the disease before working with an individual suffering from it.
This is why our staff has undergone specialized training through programs created by the Alzheimer's Association, Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center and the Dementia Care Professionals of America (DCPA), a division of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA). This specialized training truly differentiates us from all other Home Care Agencies. We provide cognitive therapies and social interaction.
We assign a Registered Nurse to meet with each new client suffering from cognitive impairment to perform an assessment of their specific needs before our professional caregiver becomes involved.
Once we have a clear understanding of what stage of the illness the client is at, we then initiate a personal care plan for our trained caregiver to follow. This personal care plan, approved by the patient's physician, serves as a guide so that we may supervise the care we are providing and ensure that we are meeting the client’s changing needs.
This personal care plan includes an activities program for clients with cognitive impairment. Depending on the stage of the disease, these activities cover such areas as creative art, daily living skills, physical activities and sensory activities. Each activity in the program is flexible, allowing each client to experience the best possible success and enjoyment at their capability level.
