Does your family support system allow for the flexibility to assist you with physical, financial, and emotional needs? Is your loved one missing doctor’s appointments, not paying as much attention to their personal hygiene or misplacing medications? Those are a few of the signs that it may be time to start looking for some help.
Choosing a company or private caregiver to care for your loved one can be a daunting task. Once you have determined the kind of care that you need, do your homework and ask a lot of questions before you make that final decision.
Know what help is available in your community. The Alzheimer’s Association, Area on Aging or their primary physician can all be great resources for programs in your area.
