Alzheimer's Care

Alzheimer's Care at Home

Receiving an Alzheimer's diagnosis for a loved one can be a daunting and anxious experience. Providing care for someone with any form of dementia presents a range of physical, emotional, and psychological challenges.

Understanding Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive degenerative brain disorder characterized by structural changes in the brain, resulting in the accumulation of specific proteins that affect brain cells. It stands as the leading cause of dementia, a gradual decline in memory, cognitive abilities, behavior, and social skills. These changes significantly impact a person's ability to function independently.

According to the Alzheimer's Society, there are over 850,000 individuals living with dementia in the U.K., with 75% of them diagnosed with Alzheimer's, making it a prevalent and increasing condition.While there is currently no cure for Alzheimer's, individuals can still lead fulfilling lives with the disease through appropriate care and support.

What is Alzheimer's Care at Home?

For those with loved ones living with Alzheimer's, the challenges and frustrations that come with the disease are all too familiar. Alzheimer's is a degenerative condition, but with the right care and support, there's no reason why someone affected by it cannot continue to live in their own home.

Alzheimer's care at home allows the ability to remain in the comfort and familiarity of one's own home. People with Alzheimer's grapple with memory loss and confusion, making the transition to a care home, away from their familiar surroundings, emotionally and psychologically challenging. Alzheimer's care at home provides a safe and comfortable living environment, nurturing the individual's emotional and psychological well-being.

Alzheimer's Support at Home

As Alzheimer's disease advances, it gradually impairs a person's cognitive abilities and communication skills. This progression presents unique challenges that can be overwhelming for families to manage without the assistance of experienced caregivers.

Individuals with Alzheimer's are at risk of wandering and may become disoriented if left unattended.

 

They are also susceptible to episodes of restlessness and aggression, which can escalate in the absence of a caregiver skilled in calming a distressed individual. As the disease advances, those affected cannot be left alone due to safety concerns.Our caregivers collaborate with the family and other professionals involved in your loved one's care to provide holistic support that minimizes disruption and fosters a stable routine.
