Dementia Care

Dementia Care in Greater Boston

A dementia diagnosis brings a lot of uncertainty. How much care is needed now? What will we need in the future? How can we keep Mom or Dad safe and engaged at home?

HouseWorks recognizes that every person living with dementia or memory loss has a unique situation. This is why our CareTeam will customize a personalized private home care plan for you. We focus first on safety and structure, but we also keep seniors engaged in activities they love because research shows older adults who remain active have less anxiety and depression.

HouseWorks provides dementia care training to our CareTeams because better understanding and training leads to better care.
