These include the stage or rate of progression of dementia and the level of access to quality caregivers.

Having won multiple awards from the Alzheimer’s Association, Care Mountain has considerable experience providing in-home care for clients with dementia. With the new guide, the company aims to share this knowledge with families in the region, helping them make more informed decisions.
The Alzheimer’s Association reports that 1 in 9 Americans over the age of 65 live with some form of dementia. While that amounts to approximately 65 million people, it is important to understand that the level of care required will vary depending on the stage and severity of the condition.
Care Mountain now helps to clarify what these requirements generally entail. The new guide suggests that those with mild dementia typically require 4-6 hours of daily care, increasing to 12 hours for those at a moderate stage of progression. Individuals with severe dementia usually require 24-hour care.
The guide continues to explain the different models of care that the company can provide. It advises that an hourly model of care, with between 6 and 12 hours of daily support, is most appropriate for those with mild-to-moderate forms of Alzheimer’s or dementia. More advanced stages are best supported by a 24-hour live-in model of care, particularly when family members are unable to provide round-the-clock assistance.
