Alzheimer’s Home Care – Caregiving for People with Alzheimer’s Disease
Caring for someone who has Alzheimer’s disease or another Dementia can be overwhelming, exhausting and stressful…Whitsyms Nursing Service can help with all of your Elder and Alzheimer’s Home Care needs!
People experience Alzheimer’s 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 care providers 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.
Unfortunately, dealing with dementia has become a big part of elder care in the United States.
Our referred care providers 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.

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.
