Having a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease can feel stressful and scary. Millions of families across the U.S. find themselves caring for someone with dementia. Right Aid, your local home care agency in the Philadelphia area, offers these families assistance with compassionate in-home care.
Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s; only treatment and strategies to manage some of the symptoms of the disease. Quality of care is often what makes the biggest difference in the patient’s life.
Caring for someone with dementia 24/7 can be an exhausting, thankless job. After a period of months and years, the caregiver will usually find themselves feeling burnout. Many caregivers report exhaustion, depression, and loneliness.
Sometimes, an adult child may juggle caregiving while also managing a home, children, and a career.
There is hope, however. Finding good help is essential to avoid burnout. Right Aid Home Care Agency, your local home care agency in the Philadelphia area, will provide quality care right in your own home.
Caring for the Caregiver
Family members caring for an Alzheimer’s patient must make time for self-care. If you do not prioritize this, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and neglect your own needs. Here are a few tips to help you manage your mental and physical health.

Care with Compassion
But when and how do you decide when to begin with the services of senior medical care? Usually, you as a caregiver or a family member are just coming to terms with the fact that you yourself are finding it difficult to take care of your elderly loved one and are unable or unwilling to send them to a nursing home. Displacing a senior from their home, a familiar and safe space that has been carefully tended to for years, can be troubling for them and can even be a traumatic experience that can impact them deeply. Research indicates that when seniors continue to live in a familiar place like a home or a neighborhood, their quality of life, from a psychological viewpoint, improves massively. A senior’s mental health is of the utmost importance, not only for you as a caregiver or a family member but for us as the professionals as well. In the long run, home care assistance for the elderly can be a better option and a home health aide can prove to be both a companion and confidante for your elderly loved one when visits from either end prove to be difficult.
