An Alzheimer’s diagnosis is difficult for an elderly patient as well as their family. If you provide care for an aging parent or loved one with Alzheimer’s, the daily responsibilities may eventually become too difficult to handle both physically and emotionally. For caregivers who feel overwhelmed by their care responsibilities, it may be in their best interest, as well as the best interest of their loved one, to seek professional assistance from a certified Albuquerque Alzheimer’s care provider.
Many families feel they cannot afford professional help and take the burden of providing care for their loved one upon themselves. However, there are many options available to help finance senior care including long-term care insurance, Medicaid and veterans assistance. With the proper research, families can learn more about the programs designed to help finance care for seniors with Alzheimer’s.
Home care in Albuquerque is often the preferred method of care for Alzheimer’s patients. With home care, seniors receive help with daily tasks such as cooking, cleaning, bathing, dressing and medication reminders from the comfort of their own home. Caregivers also provide elderly Alzheimer’s patients with companionship to enhance their mood and reduce depression. Careful supervision on behalf of the caregivers helps to decrease the risk of wandering and falls. In addition, because most Alzheimer’s patients become scared or anxious in new environments, a consistent in-home caregiver is the ideal care solution, providing the patient with stability and familiarity.
