One of the most common changes you can expect is them waking up at different intervals throughout the night due to the natural changes to their body’s circadian rhythm or their body clock. This is especially true for our senior loved ones who have dementia.
When this happens, you can take advantage of overnight care or night supervision.
We offer the service as part of our program HCBS Individualize in Minnesota so, we know that it can still be difficult to know for sure when the right time is. Enlist the service early on, and you undermine their independence, too late, and you risk compromising their health.
Thus, as a provider of HCBS Integrated in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at Victory Care LLC, we have listed down some questions you can ask to make sure.
- Does my loved one require assistance in using the toileting or washroom?
- Does my loved one have dementia that causes them to have bad dreams into the night?
- Does my loved one have dementia that causes them to experience last-day confusion or sundowning?
- Does my loved one use a wheelchair or other assistive mobility devices?
- Does my loved one require assistance with repositioning themselves in bed?
