Alzheimer’s Home Care
We have the experience you can trust
When your loved one needs special attention and consideration due to Alzheimer’s, the companions at Tristar Home Care go above and beyond.
Tristar Home Care is the leading provider for home health care and respite assistance throughout the regions of Camarillo, Oxnard, Ventura, and Thousand Oaks, CA. Our dedication to providing unique, tailored care to each senior we work with has demonstrated an understanding and companionship that the families we work with have come to rely on. Especially, when it comes to caring for family members who are suffering from Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer’s is the most common, and progressive, form of dementia.
Alzheimer’s begins with acute memory loss that is mild and gradually becomes worse. Early signs can be something as simple as forgetting car keys or forgetting to close a door. This, however, escalates much further and can become a potentially hazardous situation.
Some Alzheimer’s patients have been known to leave the stove on, wander the neighborhood and get lost, and forget to eat or take regular medication. These occurrences can cause fits of anxiety which lead to outbursts, agitation, aggression, and hallucinations.
We customize our home care to meet the patient’s needs—large and small.
It’s not easy living with a loved one who has Alzheimer’s, especially when the disease progresses far enough along where anger and anxiety settle in. We work with your family to create a customized plan that is patient-specific to keep them comfortable and safe. At Tristar Home Care, our companions can provide care that is as minimal or comprehensive as you need.
This allows your loved one to age at home in an environment they are familiar with and at home in. This is part of our person-centered approach, where we take the time to understand what both your family and your loved one need to live in harmony. Our home care includes emotional, social, and physical attentiveness.

We know how serious this condition is, so we make sure our caregivers are properly trained and prepared to handle Alzheimer’s. At Tristar Home Care, we provide only experienced caregivers who have the training and certifications necessary to handle the symptoms of this progressive disease.
