Alzheimer’s Disease

The caregivers at Girling Health Care of New York are uniquely qualified to care for patients with Alzheimer’s disease.  Alzheimer’s is a form of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and worsen over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks. This is where a caregiver from Girling Health Care can help.  With late-stage Alzheimer’s, individuals lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment.

By improving your ability to carry out everyday activities and adhere to the treatment regimen recommended by your doctor, you can enhance your quality of life.

You or your loved one may have trouble remembering how to do routine actions that used to come easy, like handling finances, cooking, or cleaning. You or your loved one might find it hard to make simple decisions. Confusion, feelings of anger, depression, or frustration are common. Whatever the specific symptoms are, managing the disorder is vital to reducing the risk of complications, like depression, illness, falls, and other life threatening injuries.

Unfortunately there is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s. There are a number of ways a skilled caregiver can help manage obstacles associated with Alzheimer’s Disease.

A comprehensive plan from Girling Health Care can include:

  • Teaching patients how to take the proper medication to slow down the progression of the disorder, that can help with behavior, mood, nervousness, and problems with sleep.
  • Assisting you or a loved one in your daily activities.
  • Focusing on ways to reduce stress levels, as elevated stress levels can worsen many symptoms.
  • Maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise.
