Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia that begins very slowly, long before clinical symptoms emerge. It accounts for 60% to 80% of dementia cases, and your elderly loved one may be at risk if he or she manifests the following symptoms: forgetting recent conversations, one’s own address, and recent events. Everyone has some sort of temporary memory loss, such as forgetting where you parked or placed your keys. However, if your loved one starts to forget important dates such as birthdays and holidays, their memory loss could disrupt their daily function in life. A-1 Home Care in Altadena will be there for you whether you need a caregiver in the beginning, middle or advanced stages of Alzheimer’s for your loved ones.
Alzheimer’s Care Requires Professional Training
For the time being, you or your spouse and children may be able to help with chores or taking your parent to a doctor’s appointment. However, as Alzheimer’s progresses, the level of care also increases, which requires formal medical training in elder care. Taking care of your elderly loved one without the proper training may be detrimental not only to your parent or grandparent, but also to your own health as well. A-1 Home Care in Altadena has a diverse pool of caregivers from which you can choose to suit your elderly loved one’s comfort levels. Having a live-in caregiver helps a lot; it’s nice knowing that you have a highly seasoned and skilled certified nurse aide at home taking care of your elderly loved one while you are working to provide for your family.
