Alzheimer’s is the most common type of dementia. Alzheimer’s and dementia manifests as memory loss, unfocused thinking and behavioral issues. Alzheimer’s symptoms develop slowly over time and gradually become worse. Sufferers eventually cannot perform common activities of daily living, and need dedicated help remaining in the home. Because no two cases of Alzheimer’s are the same, the realization that your loved one may have the disease can be frightening. Trained Alzheimer’s home care professionals can help educate you and support you in these times.
The first step is to visit with a trained professional. There are 7 stages of Alzheimer’s, and it is very important to know what stage your loved one is in. In the early stages caring for your loved one at home on your own is possible. However, the stresses of providing Alzheimer’s home care will increase as the disease progresses, and will begin to take a toll on you and the family. Realizing this and asking for help from trained and experienced Alzheimer’s care professionals is an important step on managing Alzheimer’s disease and maintaining a quality home life.
