Tell Tale Signs A Loved One Needs Help With Alzheimer's Care at Home
Our Approach to Memory Care in Union County, NJ
Alzheimer’s Disease is one of the most devastating conditions affecting seniors, and it’s absolutely necessary to get your loved one the Alzheimer’s care they need. Our caregivers at Amorycare of Union County are trained to recognize the signs of Alzheimer’s, treat seniors with individualized attention, and manage their symptoms so their quality of life remains unchanged. Our approach to memory care is designed to create a positive environment focused on your loved one’s strengths rather than their weaknesses.
Here are a few of the key symptoms of Alzheimer’s that you should look for. If your loved one is demonstrating several of these signs, our caregivers can help.
Difficulty completing familiar tasks
Seniors with Alzheimer’s generally find completing daily tasks difficult. This could include confusion while driving to a familiar location, paying bills, or remembering how to play a simple game they once enjoyed. While mere forgetfulness is normal with old age, forgetting an often-practiced routine can be cause for concern.
Confusion with time or place
Keeping track of dates, times, and even seasons can be difficult for people with Alzheimer’s. If something isn’t happening in the present moment they can have trouble understanding it. If your loved one is experiencing this problem it can be particularly worrying, especially if they’re failing to remember somewhere they visit often, like the supermarket.
People with Alzheimer’s often misplace things, or put objects where they have never put them before. Difficulty retracing their steps, or accusing others of theft, is also a sign that something isn’t quite right.
Those affected by Alzheimer’s can often have trouble regulating their moods, becoming confused, suspicious, depressed, fearful, or anxious. They might have difficulty handling minor disruptions to their routine and struggle to stabilize their emotions when they feel out of their comfort zone.
Amorycare is your solution for professional care for early, middle, and late-stage dementia care. Our mission is to provide your loved one living with Alzheimer’s the individualized care and support they need to:
Live with Dignity and Purpose safely and securely in their own home
