Our story began in 2003, when Executive Vice President, Lewis Mann, received a call from his mother, asking him to come home for a discussion. It was then that she revealed her diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.
Little did he know the heartache, frustration or sadness of the journey he and his family were about to embark on, but they soon realized, thanks to his father (the original “Alzheimer’s Whisperer”) the need for his family to change their behaviors and responses to the behaviors his mother was no longer able to control.
From this simple but powerful story, Atlanta Home Care Partners, Inc. was born with a mission of providing dignity and preserving peace of mind for families as our clients age, with a specialized expertise in highly skilled, compassionate dementia care.
At Atlanta Home Care Partners, Inc., we understand what a dementia or an Alzheimer’s diagnosis means—it instantly changes your loved one’s world and yours in many ways.
In our experience, most people suffering from dementia experience frustration and behavior issues every three to four hours that occur from the brain’s fixation on something. The fixation presents itself differently in each person. Breaking the fixation is a critical component to prevent frustration and dangerous behaviors.
