Family members travel the journey together with loved ones suffering from cognitive and physical impairments. All too often, attention is focused exclusively on the loved one needing elder care, but family and friends need support and encouragement too. At Larmax Homes, we focus on both.
How do I talk with a family member with dementia? How do I keep someone with Parkinson’s physically active? Why is my parent saying these things to me? What can I expect from this journey? These are familiar questions that need answers. Through support groups and one-on-one conversations, our accessible team members empower families to feel comfortable asking the difficult questions and provide resources where they may get informed, caring answers.
Our philosophy uses a holistic approach to care, bringing together the family and our entire team to promote wellness and share information. Because we are a small, focused company, families have direct and continual access to nursing, therapeutic, social work and care professionals all of whom are on staff and spend time with the residents every day.
Larmax and our staff partner with several organizations to provide or lead support groups. These groups have been discontinued as a result of COVID-19; as soon as they are meeting again we will update this page.
There are webinars/call-in discussions held by Fairfax Co. for family caregivers here.
Information will be posted for any upcoming events.
