Alzheimer's Care Services: Providing a Break for Family Caregivers

If you have a parent who is living with Alzheimer’s, you may have found yourself in the role of primary caregiver. Most family caregivers start out slowly, providing assistance a few times per week. As your loved one’s disease progresses, however, you may suddenly find yourself helping out on a daily basis, sometimes to the detriment of your work or personal life. Visiting Angels® Denver offers Alzheimer’s care services to take the strain off family caregivers and help you avoid burnout.

The Demands of Memory Care

If there is one thing you can count on when it comes to Alzheimer's disease, it is that things will change over time. Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that requires increasing amounts of care over time. Eventually, your loved one will require daily assistance if they wish to remain at home. It is good to establish your limits early on so you know when it is time to seek outside help, such as Alzheimer's care services from Visiting Angels Denver.

Finding Alzheimer’s Care Services Early Can Benefit Your Loved One

It is recommended to connect with an agency, such as Visiting Angels Denver, for Alzheimer’s care services as soon as possible after your loved one’s diagnosis. This will allow your loved one to begin forming a trusting bond with their caregiver, which will be important as your loved one's needs change. When your loved one’s caregiver knows them early on, they can later recognize changes in personality or behavior down the road.
