Alzheimer’s Disease is one of the most common types of dementia. People with Alzheimer’s are dealing with “a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks,” according to ALZ.org. There are more than 5 million Americansliving with Alzheimer’s. If your loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, don’t lose hope. Here at Senior Helpers, we have a proven track record of providing excellent care for patients with Alzheimer’s and other diseases. We also understand that if you are the primary caregiver for your loved one with Alzheimer’s, it can take an enormous toll on your physical and emotional well-being. With the care and support from Senior Helpers, you don’t have to face this journey alone.
It is important that if you think your loved on has Alzheimer’s disease to do some research. ALZ.org has 10 early signs to look out for. These signs range from disruptive memory loss, to struggling to plan or solve things, to issues with familiar tasks and time or place confusion. If you notice any of these signs, please take your loved one to see a doctor.
If you work, or have other daily responsibilities, it’s safe to assume that you want to have peace of mind while you are away from your loved one. If your loved one can no longer perform daily tasks on his or her own, it might be time to seek extra help. Our professional trained caregivers can provide one-on-one assistance with:
Client supervision to prevent wandering
Medication and toileting reminders
Incontinence care to prevent skin irritations and infection
Meal preparation to maintain nutrition and prevent accidents
Transportation to errands and medical appointments
Respite for family members
Assistance with engaging or calming activities
At Senior Helpers, we respect you and your loved one. We use the Senior Gems method to help those dealing with these issues to focus on thriving in what they can do and not focusing on the negatives. This will help your loved one to not only feel more independent, but it will give them a purposeful life at home.
