Dementia Home Care


Avodah Home Care is built on the foundations of servant leadership. The word “Avodah” means work, worship, and service. These are all the qualities and characteristics that exist within our caregivers. They strive to provide consistent care that ensures improvement for your loved one’s quality of life. Every action we take is to serve your family and The Most High God, Yahawah. Our professional caregivers are here to provide the people you hold most dear with the love and support they need to keep on living, not just existing. We understand that you don’t want your loved ones to be stuck at home alone while you take care of the other responsibilities you have in your life, but these other obligations are also priorities you can’t simply ignore. Allow us to step in and be the helping hand you need to make sure your loved ones are well taken care of while also continuing to live your life as well.

Specialized Support from Avodah Home Care

When a family member is diagnosed with dementia, it can feel overwhelming trying to ensure they receive the specialized care and support they need. Avodah Home Care has extensive experience providing individualized in-home dementia care that promotes safety, dignity and comfort.

Understanding the Types of Dementia

Dementia is a general term for cognitive decline caused by damage to the brain. There are several different types, each with their own symptoms and disease progression:

Alzheimer’s Disease – The most common cause of dementia. It leads to memory loss, confusion, and changes in behavior and personality from abnormal protein deposits in the brain.

Vascular Dementia – Caused by reduced blood flow to the brain from stroke or blood vessel damage. It leads to issues with problem-solving, focus and reasoning.

Lewy Body Dementia – Abnormal protein deposits called Lewy bodies form in the brain, leading to movement issues, hallucinations and fluctuating cognition.

Frontotemporal Dementia – Primarily affects the frontal and temporal brain lobes. This causes changes in personality, behavior and language abilities.

While dementia cannot be cured, treatments aim to manage symptoms and improve quality of life. Our team stays current on proven techniques.

Avodah Home Care is a family-owned agency dedicated to providing excellent and comprehensive home health care to individuals and families.
