Alzheimer’s Disease And Elderly Care

Alzheimer’s disease is devastating to the afflicted person but can be even worse for the family of an elderly person with Alzheimer’s.  Physiologically, Alzheimer’s is characterized by the breakdown of nerve cells and neural pathways in the brain which eventually lead to massive cell death.  The first areas of the brain to be effected by Alzheimer’s are the areas associated with memory.  Since Alzheimer’s is rarely diagnosed in the earliest stage, the deterioration of neural pathways continues until cognitive abilities, like recognition of familiar faces and things, and motor skills are seriously impaired.  Unfortunately, medical science has not yet discovered a way to prevent or treat Alzheimer’s so elderly people diagnosed with the disease have little choice but to deal with the disease.  As Alzheimer’s advances, the families and caregivers of people with the disease are often put into a position where personal care is no longer viable.  In such instances, the elderly person with Alzheimer’s actually has several options, including in-home care by a licensed nurse or admittance to a specialized elderly care facility.

Using Care Plan Information™ To Review Options For Alzheimer’s Patients

Care Plan Information™ provides helpful information about how to review the options available for elderly persons suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.  When a family is faced with the difficult decision about how to care for an elderly family with Alzheimer’s, Care Plan Information™ can help to ensure that the patient will receive the necessary care, thus alleviating stress from the family.  Whether the family chooses to have in-home care or put the elderly family member into a specialized care facility, Care Plan Information™ can help the family make the right decision.
