If your mother or father has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, you may wonder at what point you should seek professional care. The progression and severity of your loved one's illness will be a good indicator when it is necessary to seek assistance. One thing is for certain, it is never too early to begin services. If your loved one has been recently diagnosed, it's a great opportunity to work on building a relationship with a caregiver. If your family member's disorder is advanced, Alzheimer's care from Visiting Angels® Glendora CA can provide families throughout San Dimas with a much-needed respite for family members providing care.

Signs Your Loved One in San Dimas May Be Ready for Alzheimer's Care

The first sign your loved one may be ready for Alzheimer's care is a diagnosis. As your loved one's disorder progresses, some additional signs they may need professional assistance include:

  • Your loved one's prescriptions aren't lasting long enough, or they are lasting too long, indicating improper use.
  • You or other family caregivers are feeling the effects of caregiver burnout, such as physical and emotional fatigue.
  • Physical decline such as weight loss, unexplained bruises or injuries, and lack of personal hygiene.
  • If your loved one has begun to wander, either leaving the home unexpectedly or wandering in public.
  • If your loved one does not have family nearby to provide regular monitoring and support.
  • Your loved one has limited mobility, which could lead to an increased risk of falls and injuries.
