If you have a loved one that is suffering from Alzheimer’s then it is important that they receive care. Tackling Alzheimer’s alone is a pretty impossible task and even if you live close enough to your loved one to help them. You may find it very difficult to deal with what the disease does to them.
Most of the time Alzheimer’s is first recognised in people when they start to lose their memory. They may start to misplace thing regularly or repeat themselves a lot. In most cases Alzheimer’s effects people over the age of 65 however there are over 40,000 people in the UK alone under 65 who suffer it.
There is no cure for Alzheimer’s and over time the disease causes other symptoms in people. Their communication skills suffer, delusions/ believing things are true, reasoning and a lot more. In some cases people with Alzheimer’s lash out, sometimes physically other times with words. They lash out simply because they are scared, they do not understand where they and perhaps who you are.
How to care for Alzheimer patients at home
Caring for an Alzheimer's patient can be difficult. The progressive nature of Alzheimer’s means that this behaviour will continue to happen. You may well find it harder and harder to deal with. In this case it is important that your loved one gets the care and support they need. We can help. We offer home health care for Alzheimer's patients throughout London.
The carers that we supply can give anyone suffering from Alzheimer’s the care they need. We can administer any medicine they may need. This is crucial because they may well forget they are on medication and could quite possibly get worse.
