The Role of the Caregiver - In the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, people experience a gradual loss of memory along with a slow decline in cognitive and reasoning skills. At the outset, this can be frustrating and challenging, as forgetfulness increases and tasks that were once routine become harder to manage. But some simple coping tips and strategies can help with daily tasks and extend the opportunity to live an engaged and independent life. https://mailchi.mp/millenniummemorycare/the-role-of-the-caregiver-8880113

What Is A Residential Care Facility - As you endeavor to meet the growing needs of your elderly loved one, a struggle naturally arises between realistic expectations of care and the guilt resulting from conflicting priorities.

Respite Care For Caregivers - Being a caregiver to someone with dementia or Alzheimer’s can be extremely rewarding. It can also be incredibly stressful. But many caregivers hesitate to admit they need help. Often, caregivers of an elderly parent or spouse hide their depression, frustration, and feelings of being overwhelmed.

There’s no specific formula as to exactly when a loved one should be moved from assisted living to a memory care unit. The top reason for moving a relative to a memory care unit is to preserve their safety.

Before an individual is moved, an assessment is usually administered to examine physical, medical and cognitive abilities. The assessments are usually conducted by a staff member at the community, typically a nurse, to determine the best environment for the person to live in.

Early Onset Alzheimers - We typically view Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia as a condition affecting older people. This is generally true. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, of the over 5 million people in the United States affected by Alzheimer’s disease, about 95% are 65 years and older. But this means that nearly 5% of people with Alzheimer’s are diagnosed at a younger age, in their 50s, 40s and, sometimes, even in their 30s. https://mailchi.mp/millenniummemorycare/early-onset-alzheimers
