Dealing with a loved one with Alzheimer’s or Dementia Symptoms- How to cope

senior living facilities

Alzheimer’s or Dementia patients often deal with are anger, sadness, and confusion. Even if you are aware of the medical diagnosis of your loved one, dealing with the mood swings, agitation, repetitive questions could get emotionally draining. It is common for older people with cognitive impairment to feel lost and leave their room or house. This can be fatal. We are here to discuss the ways to cope up with such situations. Confusion, agitation and elopement can be prevented by adapting to the new lifestyle.

While talking to a Dementia patient, you should make an eye contact. Use simple words or actions to deescalate intense situations. It is Also Important to stay calm and composed if a patient is struggling with some confusion. Simply dismissing their behaviour can make them more confused leading to further outbursts. Many families opt for senior living facilities when an individual has advanced stage of Dementia. AlfredHouse Elder Care Assisted Living is well-known for Dementia care, and it is an affordable senior housing. Such facilities can provide the appropriate care for those battling with various types of Dementia. Senior living facilities for the elderly are a wise option if you believe that you cannot provide the care that an Alzheimer’s patient needs. It offers 24/7 assistance and provides professional personalised care to each resident. They are staffed with professional nurses and caregivers trained to deal with combative behaviour and other outbursts of dementia patients.

With developed technology, GPS tracking systems in the form of bracelets are being used to prevent elopement. Some of these devices are being used in assisted living facilities.

In case you are physically and emotionally exhausted from caring for your loved one and still feel that you have not done enough, then it is time to look for an alternative. The best option is to search for an affordable senior housing (according to your budget) or an assisted living facility that specializes in Dementia Care and get your loved one the care that they need and deserve.

Visiting arrangements amid COVID-19

As the elderly are particularly vulnerable to the COVID-19 infection, the safety of our residents is of utmost priority. To reinforce protection, we have temporarily suspended all visits, including relatives and friends, unless there is an exceptional circumstance. We do not take this decision lightly; reducing visitors would mean reducing the possibility of infection and protecting the well-being of all our residents. We will continue to support our residents by keeping them in touch with loved ones via phone, video calls, letters and emails during this difficult time.

WE STAY APART BUT STAND TOGETHER. LET US ENSURE THAT WE SAIL THROUGH THESE TIMES TAKING ALL NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS AND MEASURES.
