We are senior care professionals because we have a passion for helping people. Home Instead Senior Care in the Mississauga ON area wants to help lighten the load that Alzheimer’s patients and their families must shoulder.
Here are three ways we offer to you – these ways can make a difference in the life of a family touched by Alzheimer’s.
1. Recommend Counseling – Alzheimer’s caregivers can significantly benefit from counseling and other support services. According to the results of a 20-year study published in the September 2007 issue of the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, caregivers that received regular counseling and support intervention reported less of a decline in physical health than caregivers that only received information and advice upon request.
2. Educate and Offer Resources – HelpForAlzheimersFamilies.com houses a whole host of helpful information and resources specifically designed to make Alzheimer’s care a little less overwhelming for family caregivers. Family members can take a free Alzheimer’s e-learning course, download a helpful Coping with Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Guide, or find tips for preserving their loved one’s memories.
We encourage patients and family members to take part in Remember for Alzheimer’s, a thriving Facebook community where over 145,000 people touched by Alzheimer’s disease talk about their experiences and give encouragement to one another.
3. Refer Services – More Alzheimer’s patients than ever are staying at home, particularly those in the early stages of the disease, and their family caregivers often make extra efforts to keep them at home for as long as possible. Research has shown that for people experiencing memory loss, remaining in the familiar surroundings of home can play an important role in managing the disease.
