Stress and Alzheimer’s Care in Reseda
If you provide care to a parent or loved one with Alzheimer’s in the Reseda, CA area, it’s natural for you to experience a certain level of stress and concern. After all, your loved one deserves the best care available. Feeling like you have to provide this care all on your own, however, can increase your stress to an unhealthy level, putting your well-being at risk and leaving you unable to provide the care your loved one needs.
When you provide care to a loved one, it’s important you find the time to care for your own needs as well, whether that’s taking a quiet afternoon to yourself or going out with other family and friends. We all need a break and a helping hand sometimes, and the Alzheimer's care services we offer at Visiting Angels® Reseda are here for you. Our compassionate caregivers help seniors in San Fernando, Reseda, North Hollywood, San Fernando Valley, and the surrounding areas with compassionate companionship, helpful reminders, and assistance with day-to-day activities. We strive to care for our clients’ needs while providing family caregivers with a chance to rest and recharge.
Signs of Caregiver Stress
If you provide Alzheimer’s care to a loved one, just some of the signs you may need a helping hand from Visiting Angels Reseda include:
- Social Withdrawal. Oftentimes, caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's can seem all-consuming, making it difficult to participate in social events and activities you used to enjoy.
- Sleeplessness. Constantly worrying about your loved one and the care they need can keep you up at night, leading to exhaustion throughout the day and the inability to complete necessary daily tasks.
- Irritability. Providing Alzheimer's care to seniors in the Reseda area takes compassion and patience. If you find yourself becoming irritable with your loved one, it may be time to take a step back from your loved one's Alzheimer's care and call Visiting Angels Reseda for help to reenergize and recenter.
- An Increase in Health Problems. Studies have shown that stress and lack of sleep can exaggerate pre-existing health issues and conditions. If you have experienced an increase in health problems while providing Alzheimer's care for your loved one in the Reseda area, it may be time to rest and recuperate for the sake of your health and well-being. Let Visiting Angels Reseda help with compassionate Alzheimer's care.
