Long-term care for a sufferer of Alzheimer’s or dementia is a necessity, being that it is an incurable disease that affects the afflicted senior’s cognitive, physical and functional abilities. The symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia worsen over time, eventually limiting the patient’s ability to carry out activities of daily living (ADLs) and requiring 24-hour memory care 

Help for Alzheimer’s and Dementia Families 

When the responsibility of caring for a family member with Alzheimer’s falls on your shoulders, having the right resources and support system in the Birmingham area can help you manage the symptoms of stress, depression and burnout. While it is an honor and a privilege to provide home  care for a cherished elder, family caregivers still need respite care for elderly loved ones with Alzheimer’s to maintain their own physical and mental health. Amada caregivers are trained on how to help with Alzheimer’s care, from assisting seniors in the early stages of memory loss into the late states of disease progression to help for Alzheimer’s families. 

Caregiver Support for Seniors with Alzheimer’s or Dementia

Amada prioritizes Alzheimer’s education for caregivers, whose training on managing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s can positively impact the senior’s quality of life and that of the family. As the disease advances, the in-home help for Alzheimer’s care provided by your Amada caregiver will deliver the specialized attention our senior client with Alzheimer’s requires along with the physical and emotional support for families. 

Amada Birmingham caregivers provide Alzheimer’s home care services to assist seniors with daily activities that they enjoy and to help with necessary personal care for your cherished elder with Alzheimer’sBecause of their training, Amada caregivers know that taking care of the Alzheimer’s client at home requires: 

  • Setting a positive mood for interaction through body language and tone of voice. 
  • Limiting distractions and easing frustration for someone with memory care needs. 
  • Redirecting the elderly client with Alzheimer’s who becomes upset and responding with warmth and reassurance to reduce anxiety or confusion. 
  • Creating an environment of safe home care for an Alzheimer’s client  that will limit wandering and reduce the dangers associated with this behavior. 

Alzheimer’s and Dementia Assisted Living Housing 

Our support services for families of Alzheimer’s patients include guidance for families throughout the decision-making process as well as creating a home care care plan for the elderly parent or other loved one as the senior progresses through the various stages of Alzheimer’s. Through our network of senior care professionals in Leeds, Pelham, Center Point and other Greater Birmingham communities, we can identify Alzheimer’s respite care options such as senior day care programs for adults with Alzheimer’s. 

Should the beloved senior needing 24-hour Alzheimer care begin to require more support than in-home help with basic ADLs, it may be time to consider transitioning to a private memory care home or Alzheimer’s assisted living community or other Alzheimer’s residential care homes. 

Financial Assistance for Families

Taking care of a senior loved one with Alzheimer’s at home can be a serious financial burden. Being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s dementia does not make a senior patient automatically eligible for Medicare assistance. The costs of private home care for an Alzheimer’s or dementia patient or that of memory care assisted living in Birmingham at first may seem intimidating to many families. 

 You can rely on the extensive home care experience of an Amada senior care advisor to provide guidance on financial help for Alzheimer’s families. We help our clients and their families make full use of all benefits available to them, including veterans’ benefits and Long-Term Care insurance benefits, and we’re pleased to offer our placement services in Birmingham AL free of charge. Let us help your family make financial decisions with confidence. Please contact call us today at 205-208-9466.
