If you have a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s, you would know that they can’t perform their regular activities as a part of their daily routine like us. Assured & Associates Personal Care was founded more than a decade ago to serve those people who have suffered catastrophic injuries and are recovering in their homes. One of our specialties is Alzheimer’s care where we offer our personalized service as we understand each patient is unique with different constraints. Alzheimer’s has a great impact on the behavioral, cognitive, and social skills of the patient eventually resulting in declined reasoning, delusions, and forgetfulness. The people of Atlanta, Alpharetta, Douglasville, DeKalb County, and Marietta GA trust us because we treat their loved ones with lots of patience and care.
Below we have mentioned 2 key guidelines of dealing with people with Alzheimer’s disease. Take a look.
- Establish consistent routines
For an Alzheimer’s patient going about the daily chores like getting washed, preparing food, and exercising can be quite a task. For them, we prepare a timetable which includes simple daily or routine habits like having a steak with family on the weekends, throwing the garbage out, or visit a close relative once a week. These are important because, with time as the disease progresses, it is these normal activities that seem more difficult to overcome.
- Be aware of the individual’s needs
Studies have shown that games work very well for Alzheimer’s patients. Games like a card game or those played with dice activate the sensory stimulation. Yet another factor is physical games; it keeps them playfully occupied while becoming physically more active. Also, always include the person in deciding what game to play, a certain game from their past might hold a special place, with lots of memories, in their heart. These games might stimulate certain memories in their brain.
