Because of the widespread reality of this difficult disease, so many of our elder home care clients in New York and New Jersey are Alzheimer’s patients.
Our nurses and administrators have expertise, compassion and insight in supervising their care at home. Family members may live close by, but often they live far from the elder home care client, and their worries can be overwhelming.
Our staff has extensive experience in helping family members cope with immediate care needs and changing requirements. Home health aides and visiting nurses who work with our Alzheimer’s clients are dedicated to providing the highest standard of care at home.
According to medical experts, common early signs of Alzheimer’s disease include: new symptoms of: memory loss; asking the same question repeatedly; difficulty finding words; personality changes; poor sense of direction; disorientation and confusion; and changes in hygiene. Having these symptoms does not necessarily mean your loved one has this disease. However, if you think your loved one is beginning with Alzheimer’s, it’s best to schedule visit with a family doctor or neurologist.
Alzheimer’s disease progresses very differently from person to person. No treatment so far stops Alzheimer’s. However, for some in the disease’s early and middle stages, certain drugs may be helpful. Ask your doctor for more details.
