Owner of Home Instead Senior Care Edmonton, CPCA
Sue’s mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s several years ago. Since then, Sue has watched her vibrant, loving mother revert into a pressure cooker spouting off steam in angry rages. These behaviours are foreign for a woman who welcomed everyone into her home with poise and grace. Additionally, she was extremely patient with anyone she came into contact with. However, Sue noticed that the aggressive outbursts came with higher frequency, and she was at a loss for why this was happening.
Alzheimer’s disease is a health crisis for North America. Families receiving the devastating news may be at a loss at how to proceed. At Home Instead Senior Care Edmonton, we understand the toll this disease takes on Canadian families. Our compassionate staff is highly-trained in Alzheimer’s care. We assist you and your loved ones through this trying season of life.

The most important thing you can do when dealing with a senior faced with Alzheimer’s is to ask for help. Join a support group and get much-needed relief with respite care from a personal support worker. It would be best for all parties if you had time to recharge so you can be the caregiver your senior deserves. Our compassionate staff is eager to assist you or your loved one with Alzheimer’s care and any of our other senior care services.
