- Look for a senior day center. The staff will be well trained in dementia care and they’ll know the right ways to interact with your loved one;
- Have your early-onset diagnosed loved one volunteer in a senior day center like the type I mentioned above. This will ensure that they are in a safe environment while also giving them a sense of confidence; and
- Talk to local nursing facilities. Some facilities have day care or memory units that may fit your loved one’s needs.
Alzheimer’s has been termed “The Long Goodbye” due to its devastating effects that last for many years. When our loved ones have Alzheimer’s, it doesn’t only affects them, it affects us.
However, there is still hope: hope in learning how to cope with Alzheimer’s. As of today, there is no official cure for the disease, but by taking the simple steps many Alzheimer’s caregivers are using to cope, we can regain some peace of mind.
By visiting the website below, you will gain access to the Indispensable Alzheimer’s Resource Kit. This is a helpful tool that will assist you in providing stress-free care for both you and your loved one, as well as ways to pay for Alzheimer’s care without going broke.
I also encourage you to visit www.AlzheimersHope.com, which is an internet community that will give you the opportunity to connect with Alzheimer’s caregivers from around the world.
You are not alone in your journey through Alzheimer’s, and the above websites will assure you that there are many others experiencing the same thing as you.
