An Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis can be devastating …. and put a lot of stress on a family.
For the Alzheimer’s and dementia patient, s/he often can feel their capabilities diminishing and their cognition slip away. For the families, their hearts break as they see the loved one they knew slowly recede.
Situations arise among patients that are alarming for family members who feel helpless in the face of these new realities. Furthermore, having to make decisions about that loved one’s ongoing care can catapult the family into uncharted territory.
Brain injuries can be equally as overwhelming.
Did you know 1.5 million Americans sustain traumatic brain injuries every year? In addition, 5.3 million Americans live with permanent disabilities because of them.
While at first it may seem manageable, unsafe situations can occur. You may need outside help. We can provide a caring, compassionate home health aide to make sure your loved one is safe and comfortable in familiar surroundings.
