Onyx Home Care’s neurological disorder care is built around a system of support. This service includes skilled home care as well as a unique program that centers on the patient’s interests and stage of illness. Our goal is to see happy family members, patients and caregivers. Often times, caregivers feel remote. Our team includes each person in the home care process to provide inclusive care that helps the patient thrive.
We understand that as neurological illnesses progress, daily routines become more important. As our plan adapts to the patients changing needs we continue to provide patients with an anchors such as: reading the paper in the morning, grocery shopping, and more. In addition to anchors that promote recall, we also provide skilled nursing care based on patient needs.
Most memory care assisted living facilities only have one nurse on staff that is intended to serve every single memory care resident. The risk and concern is that as Alzheimer’s or Dementia progresses, medical needs are missed by the single individual strapped to be serve many at memory care facilities. What is missing from most memory care pricing plans are hidden costs and the level of care each resident actually receives. Home care bypasses these risks by offering care that is tailored to the patients needs and family concerns, without hidden costs for greater care.
What we know is that eventually Alzheimer’s and dementia patients need greater personal care and medical care that memory facilities cannot provide. A few things happen at memory facilities as needs progress, either the patient is neglected, monthly costs skyrocket, or the patient has to be moved into a different situation which can be very emotionally/financially difficult. Changing needs come with a larger price tag that is not evident when you sign up for a memory care facility.
Home care offers robust nursing and family support without hidden fees or stress.
