Caregiving for People with Alzheimer's Disease in Apopka
Caring for someone who has Alzheimer's disease can be overwhelming, exhausting and stressful...Whitsyms Nursing Service can help!
People experience Alzheimers disease in different ways so there's no one approach to caregiving. If you are providing care for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease then you know how difficult it can be. A person with Alzheimer's disease or another dementia can live in the comfort of their own home or caregiver's home provided that safety measures are in place to prevent wandering or driving. The abilities and needs of a person with dementia will change as Alzheimer's disease progresses. Our referred caregivers can adapt a daily routine to support these changes with some creativity and flexibility. That is why it is so important for our referred registered nurse to assess and evaluate the level of care given to the patient, and to report to the patient's physician.
Our referred caregivers make sure that your loved one feels supported and is living a full life. While at the same time they provide a much needed break for a family caregiver. It is important that family caregivers look after their own physical and mental health.
Whitsym's referred caregivers improve the quality of life for people with Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer's disease and related dementias can cause a person to act in different and unpredictable ways. Some individuals with Alzheimer's become anxious or aggressive while others repeat certain questions and gestures. Many misinterpret what they see or hear.These types of reactions can lead to misunderstanding, frustration and tension, particularly between the person with dementia and the caregiver. It is important to understand that the person is not acting that way on purpose. Whitsym's referred caregivers improve the quality of life not only for the people with Alzheimer's disease but also for their loved ones.
