Quality Palliative Dementia Care in Miami-Dade & Broward
What is Palliative Dementia Home Care?
Palliative care allows those with a serious or terminal illness to remain safely at home, while receiving the care they need to treat pain or other symptoms. It's an especially important service for those with dementia because it helps the patient and family cope with everyday challenges of living with Alzheimer's. The many stages of dementia can be difficult to handle over an extended period of time, where the patient undergoes stages of personality and motor changes. Each stage must be handled by a professional who knows best what proper action needs to be taken to ensure the patient's safety. There are specific questions to ask your caregiver before they provide your loved one with the Alzheimer's care that they need. The caregivers that we assign to you are ones that specialize in this type of care.
How Our Palliative Home Care Services Can Help
‘We Provide Quality of Life Care’
At the stage where your loved one needs dementia elderly care, our team of specialists, nurses and caregivers work with your doctor’s diagnosis, staging, and care plan. Quality of life means comfort and safety. Encouragement to do the lifesaving things that your loved one will no longer have the urge to do like eating, drinking or exercising.
‘We’re With You Through Every Stage’
Our duty doesn’t stop at basic dementia care at home. We are constantly working with the patient, their family, as well as their physician, to ensure that our services make sense at any given time. Our level of support is highly interactive, and we understand that every patient and care plan is not like the other.
Types of Palliative Alzheimer’s Care We Offer
The palliative care that we provide to our clients is more than simply dementia in-home care. We act as the extension of your physician's care plan, and as a supporting arm for the families affected.

We help by observing changes and improvements in the patient, and offer ways to enhance their life through encouraging their interests and listening to them.

Our At Home Memory Care Enables Seniors to Remain in Their Home Safely
- Skilled Care: Elite Care at Home offers specially trained caretakers who specialize in palliative nursing, to offer the end-of-life care needed for your loved one.
- Around the Clock Support: Our carers will move into your home if needed to care for you or pay home visits at arranged times. This can be scheduled for during the day or even overnight as needed. We are here to offer support and companionship to keep your loved one safe.
- Homemaker and Personal Care Services: As dementia progresses, your loved one’s motor skills will gradually diminish. Everyday tasks may become increasingly difficult. We pair clients with the right caregiver, who will offer personal care and housekeeping services as needed. These services include:
- Brushing teeth
- Washing and styling hair
- Light meal preparation
- Light housekeeping such as making beds, changing linens and laundering, dusting, and vacuuming.
Palliative services for dementia patients are different than that of cancer and other end-of-life medical services. Sometimes both types must come together but in the case of having to deal with dementia as a lone diagnosis, the below list of palliative care services is most common.
We offer both companion and health aide at-home services along with palliative care services. A well-rounded service is the only care your loved one should ever receive. At Elite Care at Home, we go to great lengths to ensure that we are offering the most comprehensive dementia home care programs in Florida.
To provide the best at home memory care programs to the residents of South Florida, we keep our staff up to date on all dementia care practices and training. We want to be a reliable resource to your family and loved one during this difficult time.
We Offer Ongoing Support As Part of Our Main Palliative Care Services:
- Addressing the anxiety to the patient that comes with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
- Taking care of the emotional well being of the patient and any other routine things that are important to them. It doesn’t matter whether they remember all the time or that they’re losing their understanding of it. What matters most is that they’re being honored.
- Involving the families and close friends in proper assistance to the loved one emotionally.
- The coordination of care-- whether new or ongoing, depends on the stage of the memory condition. This will vary for everyone.
- Full support for family and caregivers. There’s a special understanding that must be taken by those that are not only caring for the loved one but all who are involved with them on a regular basis. How you approach them and the unusual way they may communicate their needs--or not, needs to be understood. This is part of the ongoing support that we provide our clients as part of our palliative dementia services.
