Summary about Dementia care?
Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia can be very difficult on family members and loved ones. Caring for someone with this disease can be exhausting: mentally, physically and emotionally. Family caregiving is a large commitment that only gets bigger over time. The person with Alzheimer’s will eventually need round-the clock care. Family members may have their own health issues, jobs, and responsibilities. Also, it is not easy watching your loved one deteriorate and change overtime.
Why Alzheimer’s care is required?
Having a daily routine in Alzheimer’s and dementia care helps caregiving run smoothly. These routines won’t be set in stone, but they give consistency, which is very beneficial to the client and to the family. Safety is a major concern with a person that has Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. He or she might get convulsed or lost in their own home, in a shopping mall or leave the stove on; which then causes another flood of emotions for the client and cause them to act out of character. Supervision is necessary to insure safety.
