Adjusting to a Loved One With Alzheimer's

- Friday, October 07, 2011

Alzheimer’s disease is a debilitating mental health disease for the patient and the family. There are ways to extend the quality of life for both the care taker and the victim, but that involves commitment and honesty on both sides of the disease.

Caregivers can extend the time that their loved ones are in their own homes by establishing routines and being committed. However, this takes a toll on the caregiver, often resulting in depression and decreased mental and physical health.

At the onset of Alzheimer’s, the most successful patients are those who have a supportive family that is involved in the process, understands the implications of what is happening, and who is cared for properly.
