If your loved one is experiencing early-onset Alzheimer’s, here are some telltale signs and symptoms that will occur and that A To Z Home Care can help with.
Probably the most common and known effect of Alzheimer’s is the loss of memory. A To Z Home Care can help with in-home care for Alzheimer’s patients suffering from memory loss by helping your loved one remember important aspects and memories through cognitive exercises. Our caregivers work with your loved ones to help strengthen their mental health to slow down the disease. This can be done through brain-stimulating games.
Hard Time Doing Tasks
Certain tasks that your loved one used to do daily may become harder to do as they may lose concentration. A To Z Home Care can help your loved one with daily tasks, such as putting the dishes in the dishwasher or bathing.
Loss of Vision
As Alzheimer’s affects one’s cognitive health, it can also affect one’s vision. This can make reading more difficult. Our caregivers can read the news, books, magazines, crossword puzzles, etc. to help keep your loved one’s quality of life good.
Common Misplacement of Items
This goes hand-in-hand with memory loss as they may forget seconds or minutes later where they put an item, such as their medicines or remote control. A To Z Home Care can help with this by reminding your loved one of where they put something and perhaps having them recite out loud where they put the item to help them remember.
Personality and Mood Changes
As your loved one experiences this new change in life, they may begin to experience confusion, depression, anxiety and even fearfulness. Our in-home care for Alzheimer’s patients allows caregivers to help your loved one with these emotions and feelings by reassuring them they are ok. They can also help your loved one with exercise and mobility, which will help with their mood. They also provide companionship, which will help them feel less depressed and anxious as our caregivers are with them throughout the day or night.
The Right Alzheimer’s Home Care For Your Loved One
In-home care for Alzheimer’s patients is something we take very seriously at A To Z Home Care. We make sure the caregiver assigned to your loved one is an ideal match and will become a second family to you. Your loved one’s safety and well-being are of the utmost importance to us.
The significant aspect of A To Z Home Care is that your loved one does not need to be put into a nursing home. We come to them and help them in the comfort of their own home. This is incredibly helpful if your loved one is living with you and you can not tend to them while you are at work or running errands.
Early-onset Alzheimer’s is a hard thing for you and your family to grasp and is especially devastating to your loved one. A To Z Home Care wants to help make this scary time a little bit better by providing your loved one with the guidance and care they need while you are away. We want you to know your loved one is in safe hands and will significantly benefit from our caregivers’ care. We also encourage you to speak to your loved one about what aspects of life they are noticing has become complicated since their diagnosis. Their input, as well as your observations, will help us figure out which care is needed for your loved one.
The critical thing to remember is that Alzheimer’s is a scary disease. Simply having a caregiver to go through that process and not only be there for your loved one but also for you helps make the new transition a bit easier.
