Provider of Alzheimer's care in Sioux Falls with elderly patient

If you've been caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's or dementia, chances are that there have been times when you've felt overwhelmed by the demands of their care. Just keeping track of their appointments and medications can feel like a full-time job, not to mention the dozens of other tasks and challenges that can arise on any given day. Having the support of a professional Alzheimer's care provider like those at Visiting Angels® Sioux Falls can help to make things easier for both you and your loved one by ensuring that help is always there when you need it. 

Safeguarding Your Loved One in Sioux Falls: When is it Time to Get Help?

Whether your loved one's diagnosis is fresh, or long-standing, coping with memory loss never really gets easier, not without help. As their symptoms develop, their needs will change, and so will yours. 

It's time to start thinking about Alzheimer's care from Visiting Angels Sioux Falls if your loved one is having trouble with any of the following:

Medication Management - Incorrectly taken medication is a serious problem for seniors with memory loss and can even be fatal. Careful management is key in order to help them stay on track, which is why Visiting Angels Sioux Falls offers medication reminders and monitoring as part of our Alzheimer's care services.

Dressing and Grooming - Dementia and Alzheimer's can impact a senior's quality of life and their dignity by making everyday tasks like bathing and dressing too difficult to manage. A companion caregiver can help them maintain good grooming and hygiene so that your loved one in Sioux Falls can look and feel their best. 

Mobility - For many seniors, loss of mobility often means loss of independence, but it doesn't have to. Alzheimer's care services can include helping seniors move safely around their homes and run errands outside of it so that they can continue to live with dignity in Sioux Falls. 

Wandering - If your loved one has begun wandering inside or outside of the home, then increased monitoring may be necessary to prevent accidents. Having an Alzheimer's care provider from Visiting Angels Sioux Falls in their homes means that someone is always there to prevent them from straying too far. 

Don't wait to get help. Free consultations are available in Sioux Falls, Brookings, Mitchell, Brandon, Dell Rapids, Madison and the surrounding areas.
