Owner of Home Instead Senior Care Edmonton, CPCA
There is no cure for Alzheimer’s, yet. However, that doesn’t mean that life must end when you or a loved one receive this diagnosis. It’s possible to stay active throughout this devastating disease. As things progress, many activities can be modified to match your loved one’s abilities. Not only will you help them enhance their life, but you may also find that they are less agitated or their wandering tendencies are reduced.
The trick to making the most of activities is to engage your senior mentally without overwhelming them. Adding physical movements is even better for your loved one. Sometimes you cannot be present for your mom or dad. How do you keep them engaged when you are gone? The assistance from a personal support worker (PSW) experienced in Alzheimer’s care may be the answer. Our compassionate staff is well trained and can help you and your loved ones through this difficult season of life.
Here are some different activities you or your PSW can plan for your elderly family member:
