Tips For Caring For Your Loved One

Providing dementia care for a family member can be a constantly shifting role. For family caregivers in Annandale, Visiting Angels┬« Springfield VA can help to offset daily responsibilities and tasks. We offer compassionate and comprehensive support services to seniors living alone or with family. 

If your loved one was diagnosed recently with dementia, you may not know where to start. Let's take a quick look at what to do next. 

How To Look After A Family Member With Dementia 

If your loved one is still in the early stages of dementia, you may not know what to expect. It's important to prepare yourself, stay informed, and to make sure you have support for yourself as well: 

  • Learn as much as possible. It can be hard to know where to start after a dementia diagnosis. But your loved one's health team can help you learn a lot about the diagnosis. Ask them for recommended resources. There are books and workshops that can help you understand what to expect with this condition. 
  • Keep your loved one involved. It's very easy for seniors with dementia to feel powerless. Make sure your family member is always involved in big decisions. Ask them for help with day-to-day tasks, too. You want them to feel involved on a daily basis, and to feel like they can help you, too. 
  • Have a plan for the future. It's tough to acknowledge that things might get worse. But having a plan in place can make all the difference. Where will your loved one live if they need more intensive support? Do you already have dementia care set up in Annandale? Thinking ahead can prevent a lot of future stress. 
  • Create your own support system. Being a family caregiver is no easy task. Make sure you have a support system in place for yourself, whether this includes family, friends, or even mental health professionals. Try to carve a little time just for yourself every week, where you can spend time away from the home.
