In-Home Alzheimer’s Care in Utah
Like Family Personal Care’s in-home Alzheimer’s care gives our patients the option to stay in their homes and receive the care they need.
We offer long term care services in St. George, Utah and other parts of Washington County, as well as Weber and Davis Counties, for people who have Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementia-related disorders. Our senior care services include round-the-clock care for individuals who would prefer to live in the comfort of their own homes, as opposed to assisted living facilities or senior living homes.
A person with dementia may feel fear, amongst a slew of other emotions. Our elder care difference lies in our deep understanding of how Alzheimer’s affects both the person suffering and their family. We weave this awareness into our everyday services.
At Like Family Personal Care, we take a person-first approach to our care. Your plan may include services like 24-hour care, overnight stays, extensive family integration, and more. It always, however, involves the attitude that your family is ours.
How Does Like Family Care For Alzheimer’s Patients?
Those with Alzheimer’s have unique needs. Often, but not always, our Alzheimer’s patients are elderly, too.
Like Family Personal Care is prepared to provide the home care needed to help people with Alzheimer’s carry on living a normal, independent lifestyle. This may include (but isn’t limited to) assisting with duties such as:
- Medication reminders
- Cooking and / or eating
Unfortunately, most people caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s have jobs, children, and other vital obligations they must tend to. It is often difficult to care for someone with this diagnosis while simultaneously fulfilling any prior life responsibilities or commitments.
Alzheimer’s care can be tricky, but Like Family Personal Care has the expertise necessary to relieve dementia-related disorders and help our patients remain happy, joyous, and free.

Alzheimer’s Disease is a subset illness of Dementia. 7% of people will develop Alzheimer’s after the age of 65. Its most common signs and symptoms include:
– Memory loss
– Difficulty completing everyday tasks
– New problems with speech
– Losing items
– Personality changes or mood irregularity
Alzheimer’s begins in the region of the brain associated with learning, making it difficult for all dementia patients to remember new information. Researchers believe that the death and deterioration of nerve cells cause the memory failure and personality changes commonly associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Unfortunately, Alzheimer’s Disease is a progressive illness. Although a cure doesn’t exist for Alzheimer’s, certain treatments do help and appropriate care lessens its discomforts.
Alzheimer’s can be traumatic for the person suffering from it and their families.
In the early stages of Alzheimer’s, family members are often able to tend to their loved ones.
Eventually, this disease progresses, making the effects of Alzheimer’s feel overwhelming to family caregivers.
In some cases, the diagnosis alone can elicit some fear for every party involved in someone’s care. In such a sensitive time, it’s crucial to find trustworthy support to prevent further distress.
