Is Memory Loss A Normal Part Of The Aging Process? Yes, It is. BUT...

...Alzheimer's disease and other dementia related illnesses are not. Dementia is a general term that pertains to the decline in a person's ability to think or remember. Dementia inhibits functions needed for daily living. Alzheimer's disease is the most prevalent form of dementia and affects brain cell functions related to memory, language, and thought. Unfortunately, It is a degenerative and incurable illness. Although it occurs frequently among the elderly, it is not a normal part of aging.

Benefits of Getting Alzheimer's and Dementia Care Services

Some of our clients seek help once they are experiencing the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Others may contact us when their loved one is in the later stages of Alzheimer’s disease.

When is the right time?

The right time is as soon as possible in order to allow your loved one to get used to getting help from individuals other than yourselves. Because medications used to treat Alzheimer’s disease can only control symptoms, your loved one will need more and more supervision as they move through the different stages of the disease.

There is no cure.

So symptoms, such as memory loss and confusion, will get worse over time. They will require constant reassurance and support to maintain their dignity and as much independence as possible, for as long as possible.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, it is important to try to reduce any feelings of vulnerability or helplessness. These are just a few reasons why you will need more help.

Remember that asking for assistance is not a sign of weakness, but rather a demonstration of your strength. It is important to know your limits and, know when to seek HELP! Our caregivers have the patience, empathy, and experience your loved one needs to live through these challenges with dignity.

Here are some reasons why Alzheimer's and dementia caregiver services are helpful:

  • Caregiver services can offer the convenience of care within you or your loved one’s own home.
  • Most seniors have the expressed wish of not being moved to a nursing home. They would rather stay at home surrounded by familiar things and memories.
  • Professional Alzheimer’s and dementia care services offer you peace of mind knowing that your loved one is being cared for by experienced, patient and dedicated caregivers.
  • Our caregivers can be the extra set of eyes and ears you need to observe your loved one’s well-being when you are not there. We will also monitor for safety concerns.
  • Our caregivers will perform a variety of duties to support your loved one at home including light housekeeping, meal preparation, assistance with personal care, mobilization assistance, and medication reminders.
  • Our caregiver’s will encourage as much independence as possible, allowing your loved one to maximize their capabilities on a daily basis. Our goal is to help maintain a fulfilling life in spite of the disease’s progression.
  • You deserve a break sometimes! We understand the challenge of having to balance your elder care responsibilities with the rest of your life. Let us help you get back to just being the daughter or son again. You can leave the personal care to us.
