Providing Alzheimers Care in your Home can be Very Difficult
The amount of Alzheimers care you have to provide will depend on what stage of Alzheimer's your family member is in. The care varies with each stage. As Alzheimer's Disease progresses your family member will become more dependent on you.
Your role as a caregiver can be overwhelming at times and my goal is to help ease your burden. I want to help you avoid Caregiver Burnout if I can. Too often the caregiver tries to hide the exhausting demands of providing Alzheimer's care from friends and family and insists on doing it all themselves.
You can do that for awhile but eventually you WILL wear down.
I have broken the different areas of care down into sections. Each section will cover the tips for each stage of the disease. Keep in mind that every person with Alzheimer's Disease is different. I will provide as many tips as I can and I will continue to add to them as I find new information. If one tip doesn't work for you then try another. Our goal is to find the way to make your care giving as easy as possible.
Each subject area has it's own web page, please click on the button on the left side of this page or the web link at the bottom of this page to review your areas of interest. If you have a unique problem that is not listed please feel free to email me.
