Caring for patients with Alzheimers and giving support to caregivers

August 28, 2018

The number of Americans living with Alzheimer's disease is growing — and growing fast. An estimated 5.5 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer's disease.

Of the estimated 5.5 million Americans living with Alzheimer's dementia in 2017, an estimated 5.3 million are age 65 and older and approximately 200,000 individuals are under age 65 and have younger-onset Alzheimer's.

 

Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases. 

 

We have trained caregivers experienced in helping families care for their loved ones with alzheimer’s disease. Thus means families get a rest and badly needed recuperation time knowing their responsibilities are handled by caregivers who can provide many different kinds of help to the patient and creative ideas for entertainment and improvement of mental acuity and happiness.

Our Caregivers can do the usual tasks in solving hygiene and nutritive meals - planning and execution even shopping.

The patients needs regarding medication, exercise will be handled with expertise. Caregivers are trained in carrying out doctors orders,  PT, and complex ambulatory and other care challenges of old age or infirmities.

Caregivers have good communication skills and can listen and respond to families concerns. caregivers are trained in emergency procedures as well. 

The family already knows the many challenges facing them daily in caring for their loved one and have had to face integrating proper care for him/her into their already complex life of work and caring for themselves - their other duties and personal needs.

all caregivers find their role difficult and rewarding. each person’s and family’s situation is unique, but having good information can help a caregiver be ready for the challenges each state may bring. Caring for someone with alzheimers could be the toughest job anyone can ever have. it’s important for caregivers to stay physically and emotionally healthy. So too do our caregivers have to take care of themselves while giving relief to the family. 

Our organization provides support for caregivers so they can be their for the folks that need them.
