Alzheimer’s is a disease of the brain that causes a decline in reasoning, thinking, and memory skills. Often, Alzheimer’s is fatal. Currently, as many as 5.1-million Americans are diagnosed with this disease according to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. This diagnosis is a major blow not only to the individual but also to their entire family, knowing that a loved one has been diagnosed with the disease is frightening; but it is not hopeless.

The 10 Warning Signs

You may know by now that Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease, which means that it will only get worse. Currently, there are therapies and treatment to slow or treat the symptoms but there is no known cure yet. If you suspect your loved one has Alzheimer’s here are warning signs to check:

  • Changes in their personality or mood like disinterest, mood swings, anxiety, and/or fearfulness in common activities

  • Withdrawal from social activities or work

  • Poor or decreased judgment

  • Unable to retrace their steps or misplace items constantly

  • Recent onset of speaking or writing issues

  • Difficulty with spatial relationships and visual images

  • Inability to track the passage of time and place

  • Problems with the completion of tasks that used to be familiar

  • Daily life disruption due to memory loss

If your loved one is displaying any or all of these signs, then the best solution is to speak with your loved one's health care professional and to take them in for an evaluation.

When Your Loved One is Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s

The best way to manage this disease is to be proactive with your loved one’s senior care plan. How, here are a few simple steps to get you started.

  • Have a support system in place – caring for someone with Alzheimer’s is no easy feat. Be prepared to be overwhelmed and stressed out. And most importantly, have someone you can turn to when you need vent.

  • Regular professional senior care – let’s face it, no matter how hard you try you can’t be a superman and handle everything yourself. In moments when you need to take a break, know that you can call someone to step in for you. And this is where Visiting Angels of Auburn's Alzheimer’s Care program is a deal made in heaven. 

  • Educate yourself about Alzheimer's disease –  the more you know about Alzheimer's disease, the better prepared you will be. Not sure where to start? Two great resources to utilize are The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and the Alzheimer’s Association.

  • Arrange for the financial and legal aspects for long-term care planning –  it is important to discuss future senior care and end of life care wishes and with your loved one.
