For most families, a Dementia diagnosis is uncharted waters. Navigation of those waters is the goal of ATTEND, LLC.
"Navigation" is not a new term in medical circles, but it is new in the world of Dementia Care. It is important that families know they are not alone and the help of a Dementia Navigator can alleviate some of the fear and uncertainty that comes with a diagnosis. There is much ground to cover and we will do any or all of the following together:
Study the diagnosis and its progression
Build a support system and care team
Strive for balance and peace of mind
Learn and practice caregiving and coping skills
Utilize community resources
Identify fears and triggers
Work with family dynamics
Assess financial and legal standing
Deal with loss
Acknowledge sticking points
Promote a proactive caregiving style
Explore options for care at every stage.
