Alzheimer’s Care

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s can be emotionally challenging. It often requires dedication, patience, and understanding from the patient and their family or caretakers. Having a supportive network of friends and family is essential as it takes a toll on the patient and those caring for them. It is important to consider incorporating activities into the daily routine which will help stimulate cognitive functioning, such as puzzles, games, or conversations that focus on past events.

  1. Thank you for your thoughts and I agree that it is emotionally challenging. I think having a place to share frustrations and feelings is good to help deal with the stress and anxiety for me. Going for walks and to the store stimulates my loved one. Anything active helps. Passive entertainment doesn't help us much right now. Scott team member

    1. Right now, my mom is folding her laundry. I think she has folded two shirts in the last hour as we watch Hallmark together. I take that back, one and a half. And I think I refolded the first one. I just pointed it out. “I didn’t know I was supposed to do this.” “Do you think you’re just a pretty face?! You gotta do some work around here!” She’s laughing now and folding her sweatpants.
