Owner of Home Instead Senior Care Edmonton, CPCA
Being diagnosed with any illness is upsetting and scary, but learning that you or a loved one has Alzheimer’s, or another form of dementia, can be an overwhelming blow to the family. The patient has to face years of losing their ability to reason and care for themselves. The family has to watch it all and feel helpless. The best line of defense you can have is to research the disease and reach out for support.
Take control of what appears to be an uncontrollable situation when you educate yourself and enlist the help of an Alzheimer’s caregiver from Home Instead Senior Care. Our trained personal support workers (PSW) are ready to assist you and your family so that everyone can stop worrying and gain some peace of mind.
The rate at which the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease worsen differs with each patient. In this article, we give you a general overview of how you or your senior’s abilities will change as the disease progresses. (Keep in mind that the stages may overlap.):
Each patient is different and needs personalized support. We are here to help by encouraging your senior to do as much as possible on their own and maintain a routine to lessen outbursts. As a caregiver, you will benefit from our respite care services to give you a break and help you be a better daughter, son, or spouse.
Give you and your family the support you all deserve when you enlist the services of a compassionate caregiver from Home Instead Senior Care Edmonton.
