Alzheimer's Help & Services
for the Elderly in San Francisco

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's can be rewarding, but it can be a challenge, requiring patience and understanding. It is also hard watching a loved one lose their ability to live independently, but there are ways to cope so that they may live their lives happily.

Keep to a Routine

Your loved one will experience frustration and confusion since their memory isn't as reliable as it once was. The best way to help prevent any unknowns is to practice a routine through the day. Those with Alzheimer's need activities that provide a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Make a point of ensuring your loved one eats balanced meals, has daily exercise, and spends time socializing each day.

Practice Memory Sharpening Exercises

The harder your loved one works to keep their memory sharp, the easier it will be for them to live a normal life with Alzheimer's. While their memory will never be the same, studies have shown that memory sharpening games and activities helps those with Alzheimer's retain their memory longer.

Be Patient and Kind

No matter what you do to help your loved one, it will take a considerable amount of patience to be there for day-to-day care. When things get tough, always take a step back and try to consider what your loved one is going through. As frustrating as it can be for you, it is a much harder ordeal for them to cope with. A little bit of kindness and a lot of patience will help you a long way.

Hire a Helping Hand

With other responsibilities to take care of like your other family members, work, and outside relationships, you need to take care of yourself as well. You may want to consider hiring a professional when you need a hand. Our caregivers at Irish Help at Home have experience assisting the elderly with special needs, including those with Alzheimer's.
