Elder Care Can Help Seniors with Alzheimer’s Cope with the Changes They’ll Experience

Elder Care Green Valley, NV: Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month
Elder Care Green Valley, NV: Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month and this disease can devastate individuals and families, especially when those people aren’t prepared for what’s to come. Elder care is often one of the best assets older men and women may rely on, especially when dealing with certain serious health issues, like Alzheimer’s. 

When a person is struggling with their memory, one of the first ‘worries’ they might have could be that this might be Alzheimer’s. No one would wish that upon themselves, but about 5.5 million Americans are diagnosed and living with Alzheimer’s right now. 

At the time of diagnosis, most seniors are only exhibiting the milder signs and symptoms and, as a result, they assume they can still care for themselves without too much trouble.  

At least for a while. 

Things are going to change. 

As a person deals with Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia for a longer period of time, they will experience an increase in symptoms. That will often start with increased memory loss. 

They might have trouble tracking conversations they just had. They may use the wrong word at times, even without realizing it. They may even have trouble recognizing the people they love the most. 

In many cases, some people with Alzheimer’s might exhibit some aggressive tendencies, but this is usually out of frustration due to the extreme confusion and feelings of loss they are having, not meant to be directed at those supporting them, family or friends included. 

That’s where elder care can come in. 

Elder care can be a buffer. 

A buffer is something that can soften the blows, so to speak. Elder care support services can help an aging senior with Alzheimer’s cope with the daily struggles of this disease. That can free up family, including a spouse, adult child, or others, to focus on their relationship, love, and emotional support for this senior. 

When a family member is the primary caregiver, they will endure not just an incredible amount of exhausting work — both physically and emotionally — they will also eventually deal with the aggressive nature that this disease can pose. 

Imagine helping your elderly mother and suddenly hearing an outburst from her laced with vile language, accusations, and what appears to be nothing but evil. It can be disconcerting, to say the least. 

Some people who have been on the receiving end of this from a person they love, whose nature was never like that, can’t seem to let go of those incidences, even though they say they understand it is the disease talking, not their loved one. 

Rely on elder care support services when a senior in your family has been diagnosed with some form of dementia, which includes Alzheimer’s. Elder care will likely have experience with this and can provide better resources and support that brings comfort and that much-needed buffer for family and friends who are still grappling with the changes they are experiencing in this aging loved one.
