Start with contacting SYNERGY HomeCare, the top home care agency choice for local families. Managing the health and well-being of a senior parent with Alzheimer’s disease is an enormous burden to endure. Frequently, family caregivers of Alzheimer's patients are often forced to give up their work, hobbies and responsibilities in order to care for a family member with the disease.
Are you a caregiver for your senior parent struggling with Alzheimer’s disease? Or, has your senior parent recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease? If so, you know that it’s a demanding job, and you’re most likely overwhelmed. If you're caring for a loved one who has Alzheimer's disease, understand the stress you're facing – and know how to ask for help.
As your loved one’s progression worsens, their need for consistent, professional in-home care increases, and it often requires 24 hour care. If you’re acting as your parent’s only source of care, the quality of the care you provide can diminish as your stress and depression increase. If you’re shouldering the caregiver load and getting burned out, ask for help.
Contact SYNERGY HomeCare of Anaheim Hills. Our home health caregivers are trained to provide your elderly loved one with top-notch care, and offer a wide variety of home care services to ensure that your senior parent is comfortable, healthy and safe. Our services include the following:
A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease doesn’t just affect those with the disease, it affects everyone who loves and cares about them. Alzheimer’s disease forces family caregivers to tread new and unfamiliar roles when caring for senior parents.
Has your senior parent developed Alzheimer’s disease? Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time.
In 2013, as many as 5 million Americans were living with Alzheimer’s disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. By 2050, this number is projected to rise to 14 million Americans.
If your senior parent was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, you most likely feel lost and discouraged. What is Alzheimer’s disease? How will it affect my parent’s health, lifestyle and independence?
