When a senior is struck by Alzheimer's or dementia, it is their loved ones who are suddenly responsible for making big decisions about the future and care. You may feel the pressure of having to honor promises made years before, under different circumstances, but the realities of memory loss are often very different from what we imagine. Having Alzheimer's care from a trusted provider like Visiting Angels® Beaumont can help. By engaging the services of a professional caregiver, you can help ensure that your loved one in Beaumont enjoys a consistently high quality of life without sacrificing your own. 

When Should You Start Thinking About Alzheimer's Care for a Loved One in Beaumont?

As rule of thumb, it's always better to be proactive when it comes to degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and dementia. So just when is it time to start seriously considering getting professional Alzheimer's care for your loved one in Beaumont? 

Some early indicators that it's time to get Alzheimer's care for your Beaumont area loved one include:

  • Changes in behavior - When a relative with memory loss begins to behave aggressively without provocation or isolate themselves by withdrawing from family or friends, it may mean that their condition is getting worse.  
  • Changes in appearance - If your loved one in Beaumont has lost a significant amount of weight, or begun to neglect their grooming habits, it's a strong sign they are in need of Alzheimer's care to help maintain good nutrition and hygiene. 
  • Signs inside their home - A build-up of clutter or trash can mean that your loved one is struggling with everyday tasks at home and could use the extra support that professional care can provide.
  • Increasing accidents - Staircases, stovetops, driveways, and appliances can all pose a threat to seniors with memory loss, especially if they live alone. If you notice bumps or bruises on your loved one, it may be time for Alzheimer's care from Visiting Angels Beaumont.
  • Caregiver Stress - If you're feeling run-down, overwhelmed, or have noticed that other areas of your life are beginning to suffer as a result of having too little time or energy, then it's time to get help for both you and your loved one.
