Cognitive health is an important aspect of a person's overall brain health. Home Presence Care offers comprehensive cognitive care services to our clients. 

While maintaining one's physical health is an important aspect of successfully aging in place, it is important to take care of your brain health as well. Brain health refers to how well a person's brain works across the following areas: cognition (how well you think, learn, and remember), motor skills (how well you make and control movements, including balance), emotional function (how well you interpret and respond to emotions), and tactile function (  how well you feel and respond to sensations of touch)     

Examples of our Louisville Cognitive Care Services:

Managing Stress through Relaxation  -  Chronic stress can change a person's brain, affect memory, and increase a person's risk for Alzheimer’s and related dementias. Home Presence Care Associates can help clients manage stress through meditation and breathing exercises.    

Mental Stimulation  -  Studies have shown that brain stimulation can help it generate new cells that build up a functional cell reserve. This reserve can act as a hedge against future cell loss. Our Care Associates love to complete puzzles like sudoku and crosswords, build models using kits, and helping clients with brain training apps like Lumosity and Elevate.

Reminder Systems -  Our Care Associates can help clients set up electronic reminder systems that use artificial intelligence to remind clients to check appliances, lock doors and other household tasks that may need reminders. We can set these systems up so that family members can have remote access as well.
