Preparing for Alzheimer’s – Facing the Challenges of a Hereditary Disease

Alzheimer’s runs in the family; and many have tried to prevent a life of dementia and Alzheimer’s. However, facing challenges now instead of later down the road will not only help prepare your family, but also your loved one.
Seniors ages 65 and older are at a higher risk for developing Alzheimer’s and it increases twofold, every five years! The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that approximately 50% of people ages 85 and above deal with some sort of symptom of Alzheimer’s or some other variation of dementia. There are major components that one can practice now for facing the plethora of daily life challenges living with Alzheimer’s – however it can be a fulfilling life.
It’s beneficial to keep a daily routine that includes leisure activities, exercise, meal prepping/cooking, medication administration, keeping up with hygiene (bathing/showering, brushing teeth, and hair) and toileting. With everyday routines in place, try to complete them daily. Our agency can assist with the everyday tasks with a great staff of nursing professionals and caretakers. We care for your loved ones can give adult children of Alzheimer’s seniors a peace of mind, including 24 hour around the clock care if desired. This will give Alzheimer’s loved ones a sense security and reliability, that the needs of their loved one’s everyday lives are at the optimal best; in clean, positive environments and so they can be at ease to enjoy more years to come.
Taking care of a loved one with Alzheimer’s is a continual process of trial and error.
