Care of Patients with Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia
There are few diseases that have as profound an impact on the families of patients as Alzheimer's disease.
IF you have a family member with Alzheimer's, we encourage you to seek help and support. You really can not do this alone. According to a Swedish study from 2007² people who tried to go it alone showed "significantly higher values of worry, overload and role captivity, and a higher level of depression" than people seeking help. You have arrived at VIDA SERENA, so you are on the right track! Contact us for more information about our memory care services for Alzheimer's and dementia.
Talk about it
Living with Alzheimer's can be difficult. There are a number of support groups for patients with Alzheimer's disease and their families. You may find yourself frustrated, angry or very tired and finding a support group or other people to talk to about the impact of Alzheimer's disease can help. (See Alzheimer's Association below.)
