Coping With Alzheimer’s Disease:
A Guide for Family, Friends, and Other Caregivers IS YOUR KEY TO LEARNING WHAT THE SYMPTOMS
AND PROGNOSIS OF ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE ARE, WHAT CHALLENGES YOU MUST FACE WHEN SOMEONE HAS THE DISEASE, AND HOW YOU CAN
HANDLE THE CHALLENGES, RESPONSIBILITIES, AND EMOTIONS THAT COME FROM BEING THE CAREGIVER OF A LOVED ONE WHO HAS ALZHEIMER’S
Dear Respected Caregiver, Discovering that your dear loved
one has a disease that can take that person from you a piece at a time is certainly very devastating news, especially when
there is no known cure for Alzheimer’s disease. You first realized that something may be wrong when
you’ve noticed that your loved one continues to forget things over a period of time that was known to that person as
well as the back of his/her hand for much of his/her life. Over time, this forgetfulness continued to increase,
making other family members, friends, and loved ones notice as well. You then find out what you didn’t want to hear: Your
loved one does have Alzheimer’s disease. You likely know that Alzheimer’s disease eventually prevents the afflicted
person’s mind from working as it once did, causing the person to become forgetful, to become less able to do common,
everyday tasks, and to even become emotionally unstable. However, what else is involved with Alzheimer’s
disease? How will it affect your afflicted loved one’s life from this moment forward?
And, how will it affect YOUR life as caregiver of your loved one from this moment forward?
With Alzheimer’s Disease: A Guide for Family, Friends, and Other Caregivers was written to help provide you with answers to these questions and to help you do the following:
Aid you in discovering what challenges lie ahead.
· How to best handle those challenges when they come about.
· How to handle your loved one’s emotional ups-and-downs.
How to handle your own emotional roller coaster.
Defining Alzheimer’s Disease
We define exactly what dementia is and what
exactly Alzheimer’s disease, a form of dementia, is. We give statistics from the Alzheimer’s Organization’s
official website, ALZ.org, that shows how prevalent Alzheimer’s disease is in the United States today. We show the symptoms and characteristics
of dementia. We show who is most at risk of contracting Alzheimer’s disease, including 6 specific factors that can increase
one’s risk of contracting the disease.
Early Symptoms, Evaluation, &
We discuss the early symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and why oftentimes these symptoms will not be
recognized as the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. We discuss how evaluation is the first step in the caregiving process of Alzheimer’s
disease and why it can be difficult to convince that loved one to go in for a medical evaluation. We show the best ways to convince
your loved one to go in for that medical evaluation (Hint: Arguing with your loved one is NOT the answer!)
We also show the best ways to convince the afflicted one’s spouse, parent, or guardian of his/her situation. We show what
is involved in the testing and diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. We discuss the differences between
early-onset Alzheimer’s disease and late-onset Alzheimer’s disease.
Dealing With The Diagnosis
We discuss exactly how you, the caregiver, should decide how and when to tell
your loved one that he/she has Alzheimer’s disease. We discuss the two main factors in determining whether and when you should tell
your loved one that he/she has Alzheimer’s disease. We examine the four main reactions your loved one will likely have to your mentioning
that he/she has Alzheimer’s disease, and how to respond to each reaction. We discuss the emotional trauma that accompanies the
Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis and how it affects not just the patient, but also the family and caregiver as well.
We discuss how the treatments available today have shown vast improvement in
slowing down Alzheimer’s disease. We discuss how medications do not prolong the life of the person with Alzheimer’s disease,
but that they do make life more bearable for the person who has Alzheimer’s. We discuss medications for cognitive symptoms,
behavioral symptoms, and sleeplessness. We discuss several complementary and alternative therapies, including behavioral approaches, physical
therapy, music therapy, art therapy, supplements, and herbs.
Preparing The Home
We discuss the importance of safety for
your loved one who is dealing with Alzheimer’s disease in his/her home and how you can enable him/her to live in his/her
home longer through mobility aids and safety equipment. We provide 26 different tips on what
to look for inside the home that could pose a potential safety hazard for your loved one and how to neutralize these potential
dangers. We show you ways on how you can secure your home to keep your loved one safe, especially to prevent him/her from wandering
off unexpectedly. We evaluate the MedicAlert® + Alzheimer’s Association Safe Return® program to see what benefits
it can provide for your peace of mind when it comes to the safety of your loved one. We evaluate different security systems to
see how they can aid your efforts to keep your loved one safe in his/her home.
We examine the various services provided by 5 different outside options to aid you in providing care to your
loved one who has Alzheimer’s disease:
· Home health aides
In-home nursing care
· Occupational therapists
Adult day care
· Respite care
Coping On A Daily Basis
We break down the 7 different stages of Alzheimer’s
disease in terms of the emotional and physical symptoms that are normally observed at each stage. We also examine exactly what the
caregiver should do for the patient at each stage of Alzheimer’s disease. We examine how to deal with typical problem behaviors
and emotional outbursts that people with Alzheimer’s disease typically display as the disease progresses through its
course. We explore in detail how to handle the following problems typically shown by Alzheimer’s patients:
· Eating difficulties
Problems caused by sundowning
· Sexually inappropriate behaviors
And Legal Issues
We discuss the importance of having the person put his/her financial and legal affairs in order
before Alzheimer’s prevents him/her from being able to be involved in his/her own affairs. We state the affairs that high-risk
persons for developing Alzheimer’s disease should plan for ahead of time to save their loved ones from having to deal
with the burden of them later on. We evaluate statistics from the Alzheimer Association’s 2010 Alzheimer’s Facts and
Figures report dealing with the cost of care and insurance for those who have Alzheimer’s disease. We examine
the features of Medicare, Medicaid, and long-term care insurance, as well as provide links for you to gather more information
about these potential options. We explore the different options you have when it comes to your loved one’s financial needs
and estate planning:
· Elder law attorney
· Power of attorney
· Health care proxy
The Care Of The Caregiver
We examine how the caregiver has a difficult road to travel when providing care
to a loved one who has Alzheimer’s disease and the physical and emotional toll it can take on the caregiver. We provide
advice from other caregivers, grief counselors, sociologists, and physicians on how the caregiver can stay physically and
emotionally equipped during the potentially long trail of the initial diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease to the death
of his/her loved one.
We provide a list of website links that will provide
you with more information on Alzheimer’s disease, how you can help your loved one deal with the disease, how you can
help yourself remain physically and emotionally grounded during the potentially long duration of the disease, and resources
to enlist help in caring for your loved one.
As you can see, we examine every angle of what is involved when your loved one is diagnosed
with Alzheimer’s disease, including making sure that you, the caregiver, also take care of yourself to ensure that you
remain strong for your loved one.
