DID YOU KNOW THAT ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE AFFECTS OVER SIX MILLION PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA?
And you might be among the 15 million family members who provide some level of Alzheimer’s or dementia care … if you are helping a loved one cope you are not alone.
Taking care of your loved one can be draining both physically and emotionally. At first the care might be minimal. Unfortunately as the disease progresses the care demands increase until the individual needs 24/7 safety monitoring and help with lifestyle and household activities. And sadly, the disease can also cause a change in personality, loss of precious memories, and for some, irritability – all taking a psychological toll on family members, especially those who are caregivers. Of those who are identified as family caregivers, 61% have experienced emotion stress and 43% have experienced physical stress.
If you are a caregiver and need help caring for your loved one – whether for 24/7 care or for respite care a few days a week, please download the Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Patient Guide at http://homecareassistance.com/alzheimers-awareness/
The Guide contains valuable information such as warning signs for caregivers that you may need help and the specific services we offer for Alzheimer’s and dementia clients. Please contact Ted at 480 499-4944 for at home care in the Scottsdale, AZ area.
