ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE

The symptoms of Alzheimer's disease can be overwhelming and may include intense indecisiveness, feelings of disorientation, anger or trouble remembering simple things, like names, or familiar faces. Learning how to manage Alzheimer's is key to improving your loved one's quality of life and helping him or her cope with the condition.

At Partners in Care, we can create a Plan of Care tailored to the progressive nature of Alzheimer's. Once we have determined what you need, we'll assign a specially trained home health aide or skilled nurse, depending upon the type of care you need or desire, to help you cope with and manage the daily effects of the disease, and stay alert to additional risks that are unique to Alzheimer's and Alzheimer's related dementia. Our home care professionals can coordinate with your doctors and help to reduce your stress.

 

A typical plan may include:

  • Helping you cope with signs and symptoms, including memory, concentration problems and wandering.
  • Establishing a daily routine that's reassuring to those with Alzheimer's.
  • Reducing the risk of complications, such as depression, infection, falls and other injuries around the house.
  • Making sure medications and supplements are taken.
  • Helping reduce or relieve stress.
  • Creating social and other sources of support for clients and family members.
  • Providing companionship and active engagement.
