How Home Care Can Assist With Alzheimer’s

As your loved ones get older, they can be vulnerable to many different diseases and conditions. One of the worst to experience is Alzheimer’s. Watching your loved one lose his or her memory over time can be devastating for all involved, which is why you want to make sure that you are providing the best care for them.

Sutton In-Home Care is an excellent choice for those suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer’s. Let’s go over the various benefits that you can expect when you put your loved one in our care.

Familiarity with Environment

The symptoms of Alzheimer’s will get worse over time, but it will start innocently enough. Your loved one will begin to forget what he or she was doing, and it can be difficult to get them to remember.

Putting them in residential care at first will be a shock to their system. Since they are familiar with their current surroundings, it can make the transition from independence to home care much smoother. Instead of being confused and frustrated by such a drastic change, we can ease the patient into the next stages of care.

Structured Schedule

One side effect of Alzheimer’s is that patients will forget to do things, such as take medication or eat. When you have a qualified home care assistant, they will make sure that your loved one doesn’t suffer the consequences. We will keep him or her on a strict schedule that will keep them on track at all times.

Behavior Monitoring

As Alzheimer’s gets worse, patients will usually start to get frustrated and lash out. The constant confusion can lead to anger and outbursts, which is why it’s so crucial to have a trained home care assistant there. You may not be prepared to see your loved one like this, but we know how to handle the situation in a caring, respectful way that will make things easier throughout this process.
