Home Care for Loved Ones with Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s home care is financially and emotionally draining; not only does the family of the person afflicted see them suffer and decline over time, the cost of 24-hour supervision can wipe out a lifetime of careful money management and saving.  The burden of care can be overwhelming because a person with Alzheimer’s cannot be left unsupervised for even a few minutes; constant monitoring is required because he or she can be a danger to him or herself and everyone else in the household.

Comprehensive Home Care’s caregivers undergo extensive training specifically for those who suffer with Alzheimer’s and Dementia. If your family needs assistance, please contact us at  704-333-5214 for a free home assessment.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia.  Thinking abilities worsen over time, memory loss becomes permanent, and behavior can be affected with the patient suffering from wild mood swings to violent episodes.  Confusion becomes permanent, and eventually the patient will lose control over bodily functions and will die, unable to think, walk, eat or drink on their own.

The care required for an Alzheimer’s patient is intense as they have the tendency to wander off and become hopelessly lost; they also become completely helpless and dependent on others to simply survive.  They need help eating, getting to bed, waking up, bathing, going to the toilet and getting dressed; furthermore, all of their paperwork and official affairs must be taken care of.  In many cases, when a family cannot afford to send their loved one who is in the final stages of Alzheimer’s to a care facility, a member must quit his or her job to become the primary caregiver.   Respite care for a weekend to catch up on sleep or rest might be an unforeseeable luxury.

However, there is help for caregivers; there is professional Alzheimer’s home care available by specialists who can help. Comprehensive Home Care provides expert care for those who suffer with Alzheimer’s and can help bring relief to your family. Call us today at 704-333-5214 for more information.
