It’s painful to watch a loved one display uncharacteristic behaviors. Unfortunately, difficult behavior is just one the challenges families face when dealing with Alzheimer’s disease. At LarLin HomeCare, we help families deal with the difficulty of Alzheimer’s care. Our thoughtful and effective caregivers step in when you need help.
What Is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. AD is a progressive and irreversible brain disorder. Although the actual cause of AD is unknown, it slowly damages a person’s memory, judgment, reasoning skills and personality often resulting in unexpected behavior.
LarLin HomeCare Alzheimer’s Care Manages Stress
Although the disease is irreversible, effective Alzheimer’s care can minimize the behavior challenges that often accompany the disease. For example, a patient’s environment has a profound impact on their actions. The sudden noise from the refrigerator motor or the evening sunlight unexpectedly peeking through a window can create undo stress. What seems insignificant to others may be frightening or stressful for someone with Alzheimer’s.
LarLin Alzheimer’s care specialists work to eliminate these potential problem areas. And when an outburst does occur, we identify the issue that causes the sudden behavior change, removing it when possible.
With over 1,000,000 hours of home care service, LarLin HomeCare knows how to provide:
- A calm and safe setting
- Thoughtful care
