Best Friends™ Approach

The Best Friends™ Approach is a well-known method for building meaningful connections with individuals living with Alzheimer's disease.

This approach involves the caregiver forming a close relationship with the senior by learning about:

  • Preferences
  • Care needs
  • Families
  • Triggers
  • What makes them happy

Our care providers support seniors by including them in various activities and events in a day facility or at home. They help them promote enhanced joy, belonging and satisfaction while improving physical, emotional, and social well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions

The best way to support family members or friends who show warning signs of Alzheimer's is by listening to their feelings, giving them a sense of control over the situation, and breaking down the support process into smaller steps. If nothing is working for you, you may want to seek professional help. It's important to remember that each person with Alzheimer's is unique and may have different preferences and needs. Therefore, it is essential to be flexible and adjust the approach as needed.

As Alzheimer's progresses, the person with the disease will require more support and care. The stage at which full-time care is needed will vary depending on the individual, but generally, it is during the moderate to severe stages of the disease. If you need clarification on whether you or your loved one requires full-time care, contact us.

It is not recommended to leave someone with Alzheimer's alone as they may get themselves into dangerous situations. They may also struggle to complete their daily activities, causing more frustration, anxiety, or confusion.
