Alzheimer's Care in Kingston, PA
There are a number of reasons why professional Alzheimer's caregivers are pertinent to ensuring your loved one's well-being. Here are a few examples of when professional care can be life-changing for your loved one:
- While a loved one in the early-stages of Alzheimer's can typically provide a large amount of their own care, or a family member can provide the part-time care your loved one needs, it is believed to be one of the most important times for professional Alzheimer's services. An in home caregiver can provide the care and support your loved one needs, all while monitoring the progression of the disease and communicating it with the senior's loved ones. As professional caregivers understand the disease best, they can decipher when a senior has entered the middle stages of the disease, when to increase care and support in particular areas and more. Alzheimer's care during this time also helps families maximize the time they have left with their loved one while they are at their best.
- While a loved one is in the mid-stages of Alzheimer's, an in home caregiver can help your loved one with the daily living activities that have become increasingly hard to manage. As, during these stages, a senior's condition can take a quick turn, beginning to wander, forget the names of familiar faces and more, a professional caregiver can be crucial.
- By the late-stages of the disease, a senior will progress into a shell of their former self. This can be an extremely difficult time for family and friends. A professional caregiver is most often full-time during this challenging time, as one's personality has changed to feelings of anger and paranoia and symptoms such as an inability to feed themselves and/or loss of mobility is likely to occur. With professional care during this time, your loved one will receive the best care and support.
A few of the ways an Alzheimer's care specialist can help your loved one includes:
- Creating a safe environment (adding guard rails, lighting pathways, etc)
- Stimulating the senses (reminiscing on old photos, completing a favorite hobby, working on brain games, etc)
- Monitoring the progression of the disease
- Supporting family members during this challenging time
