At Premier Caregiver Services, we’ve learned a tremendous amount about how to overcome refusal of in-home dementia care, or care at all, specifically with clients who have dementia, and are offering this guide to help you navigate this challenge.
One of the fundamental and critical concepts, (and most difficult for loved ones, caregivers and anyone encountering someone with dementia) is Anosognosia: a lack of self-awareness resulting from brain cell changes commonly found in 80% of people with dementia. It is distinct from denial, which involves consciously rejecting difficult truths. Premier Caregiver Services’ “A Guide to Overcoming Refusal of Care” helps families navigate this challenge.
Premier Caregiver Services differs from traditional caregivers and agencies by studying and practicing the Dementia Care Practice Recommendations for Professionals Working in a Home Setting.
This booklet, along with our Mentor Program, extensive dementia care experience with hundreds of clients, and an ongoing commitment to education and advancement regarding in-home dementia care, differentiates us from “Generalist” caregivers or Home Care Agencies, where providing just “task-oriented” care is the norm.
