Read on and click on the links below to learn more about how Amada caregivers can help with different conditions and disease states.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Did you know the Alzheimer’s Association estimates 6.5 million Americans were living with Alzheimer’s or dementia in 2022? These progressive diseases that destroy memory and other key mental functions not only impact sufferers but also their families. Family caregivers can anticipate they will need to do more to help their senior loved one manage the symptoms of Alzheimer’s or dementia. This is where Amada Pittsburgh comes in. Our compassionate caregivers are highly skilled and trained in assisting senior clients with activities of daily living (ADLs). Their care goes beyond everyday tasks; however, to extend to our senior clients’ special pursuits and activities that promote a sense of joy and accomplishment. Let a trained caregiver on the Amada Pittsburgh care team provide the support and knowledge needed to give family caregivers respite from the day-to-day challenges of Alzheimer’s and dementia so that they can recharge physically and spiritually.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Family caregivers of a loved one with MS have much in common with family caregivers of Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. There will be many emotionally and spiritually rewarding experiences in providing necessary care to a loved one. Since MS also can be unpredictable day-to-day, family caregivers on this journey with their loved one also will experience exhausting challenges. Multiple Sclerosis is a progressive disease that can start in one’s 20s, 30s, 40s or later and impacts the central nervous system. Adults who have been diagnosed with MS likely will need support to help manage symptoms, especially in later stages of the disease. Being the condition can be unpredictable makes it difficult to determine what assistance an MS patient will need from one week to next. Whatever the situation, know that the members of our Amada Pittsburgh care team can provide the skills, motivation and compassion to help our adult clients with MS carry out ADLs (activities of daily living) and maintain an excellent quality of life—something we are expert at providing.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
COPD is an inflammatory lung disease that affects 15.7 million Americans. Conditions under the COPD umbrella include emphysema, chronic bronchitis and refractory asthma. Adults and seniors diagnosed with COPD experience symptoms such as frequent coughing, breathlessness and severe wheezing, and they often battle chest infections. Being that COPD can greatly impact quality of life, many seniors with COPD can also experience anxiety and depression. Understandably, a family caregiver may also experience anxiety and depression from the difficulty of seeing a senior loved one challenged by breathing complications. There is no cure, but some senior COPD patients receive treatment or participate in physical therapy designed to improve breathing. When an elder you love needs assistance at home with managing COPD symptoms, count on Amada Pittsburgh to provide a trained and knowledgeable caregiver who can support your senior loved one’s efforts. An Amada Pittsburgh caregiver is adept at helping adults and seniors with COPD follow the care plan outlined by their doctor or other medical professional.
