When an aging loved one’s health starts to change, families are often first in line to help with tasks around the home or daily needs. An Alzheimer’s diagnosis often scares families into thinking that a senior loved one cannot remain at home, or that their loved one will be forced to change their lifestyle unwillingly. Alzheimer’s could impact daily habits, socializing, and even personality traits, but it does not mean that your loved one cannot stay safe, healthy, and comfortable in their own home. Visiting Angels of Lancaster offers essential in-home Alzheimer’s services that can help your loved one stay safe, healthy, and comfortable.

The Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease

You might have started to notice warning signs of Alzheimer’s; it is important that if you notice these signs, you report them to your loved one’s doctor. Your loved one’s medical care team can give you more information about your loved one’s unique health needs, and even make recommendations for daily care that can help. Early signs of Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other cognitive diseases include:

  • An increase in anxiety, changes in temperament, or mood swings
  • Changes in your loved one’s ability to remember recent events
  • Inability to keep a schedule or complete a task
  • Trouble with speech, or trouble articulating complex ideas
  • Decreased interest in socializing or spending time with people
