Questions to Ask About Your Relatives with Alzheimer's Disease

If you're unsure whether you should call a local Alzheimer's care provider to help look after your loved one in the San Angelo area, you can use these questions to help you make your decision:

  • Are you worried about your loved one remaining at home? 
  • If you're a family caregiver, are you comfortable with the level of care you provide, or do you worry it isn't enough?
  • Does your loved one seem healthy, well-fed, and happy?
  • Is your loved one maintaining the same level of personal hygiene as usual? 
  • Are they keeping up with everyday tasks including bill payments and cleaning?
  • Is your family member still active within their community or are they more withdrawn?
  • Have you noticed any changes in your loved one's appearance or behavior that could impact their health?
  • Is your loved one keeping up with their doctor's appointments and medical prescriptions?
  • Has your relative ever gotten lost or confused when they left their home?
