Should Alzheimer’s Patients Receive Specialized Care?

Should Alzheimer's Patients Receive Specialized Care

Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common form of dementia. It can be completely debilitating in its later stages, though many seniors are high functioning during the early stages of the disease. The truth is Alzheimer’s Disease can be very difficult, painful, and sad. But that does not mean all is hopeless. There are many things one can do to alleviate the issues that come with Alzheimer’s Disease. It just takes some proactiveness and the right type of assisted living for Alzheimer’s patients.

Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disease that typically begins slowly and worsens as time progresses. Alzheimer’s patients comprise somewhere between 60% and 70% of the total number of people living with dementia. Often, the first symptom to be exhibited is short-term memory loss. As the disease advances, other symptoms include: problems with language, disorientation (including getting lost easily), mood swings, loss of motivation, not managing self care, and behavioural issues. The cause or causes of Alzheimer’s are not known, though some studies have shown a correlation with conditions such as obesity as well as some genetic markers.

In 2015, there were about 30 million people living with Alzheimer’s Disease globally. Nearly two million people died that same year due to or in conjunction with Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s affects about 6% of people over the age of 65. Alzheimer’s is clearly a huge issue for those who have the disease as well as society in general. If you have an elderly loved one who has the disease or has been recently diagnosed, what can you do?

Assisted Living for Alzheimer’s Patients

Assisted living can, has, and does improve the lives of countless seniors all across America and the world. Assisted living can help those seniors who need just a little help managing their lives as well as seniors who require a great deal of assistance and care. Alzheimer’s patients are no different in that they too can benefit from assisted living. But the needs of Alzheimer’s patients are obviously different from the needs of other patients.

Some assisted living communities can offer services from caregivers who are specially experienced and trained in helping those with Alzheimer’s Disease. But not all assisted living communities can offer these specialized services. That is why it is sometimes beneficial to hire the services of a third party caregiver. Healthcare agencies that offer the services of their caregivers in their clients’ homes can often also provide those services to seniors living in assisted living communities, nursing homes, and retirement communities. This can ensure that your elderly loved one is getting the specific care that they need to deal with their Alzheimer’s disease.

Executive Care

Executive Care is one such healthcare agency that offers the services of caregivers who specialize in caring for patients with Alzheimer’s Disease. Executive Care’s specialized caregivers can provide care in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, hospitals, and in the homes of clients. Apart from Alzheimer’s Disease, Executive Care also has a staff of caregivers who are specially skilled at treating those with Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, Parkinson’s Disease, developmental disabilities, as well as those who have suffered a stroke or brain or spinal injuries.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.
Cindi E
It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
