    Alzheimer care

    Alzheimer care

    If the person with Alzheimers or other dementia prefers a communnal living environment or needs more care than can be provided at home, a residential facility may be the best option. Different types of facilities provide different levels of care, depending on the persons needs.


    Types of residential care

    Different factors will determine which Alzheimers care options you pursue for a loved one. In the early stages of the disease, families often choose home care so that their loved one can remain in familiar surroundings and enjoy as much independence as possible.
    As the disease progresses, however, residential care may be necessary to provide your loved one with the total care he or she will need.


    Managing Personality and Behavior Changes in Alzheimers

    Get tips for coping with personality and behavior changes, such as pacing or feeling sad, that are common in people with Alzheimers disease. Alzheimers and Hallucinations, Delusions, and Paranoia Learn how to react and keep things calm when a person with Alzheimers experiences hallucinations, delusions, or paranoia. Reduce frustrations A person with Alzheimers disease might become agitated when once-simple tasks become difficult. To limit challenges and ease frustration: Schedule wisely. Establish a routine to make each day less agitating and confusing. People with Alzheimers disease can still learn and follow routines. Often it is best to schedule tasks, such as bathing or medical appointments, when the person is most alert and refreshed. Allow some flexibility within the routine for spontaneous activities. Take your time. Expect things to take longer than they used to. Allow the person with Alzheimers disease to have frequent breaks. Schedule more time for tasks so that you dont need to hurry him or her. Involve the person. Allow your loved one to do as much as possible with the least amount of assistance. For example, people with Alzheimers disease might be able to set the table with the help of visual cues or dress independently if you lay out clothes in the order they go on.
    Provide choices. Fewer options are better but give the person with Alzheimers disease choices every day. For example, provide two outfits to choose from, ask if he or she prefers a hot or cold beverage, or ask if he or she would rather go for a walk or see a movie.
    Provide simple instructions. People with Alzheimers disease best understand clear, one-step communication.
    Reduce distractions. Turn off the TV and minimize other distractions at mealtime and during conversations to make it easier for the person with Alzheimers disease to focus.
    Be flexible
    Over time, a person living with dementia will become more dependent. But theres a lot you can do to maximize the quality of your interactions and reduce frustration. Try to stay flexible and adapt your routine and expectations as needed.
    For example, if your loved one starts insisting on wearing the same outfit every day, consider buying a few identical outfits. If bathing is met with resistance, consider doing it less often. Relaxing your expectations can go a long way toward self-care and well-being.
