Alzheimer’s Symptoms

A person with Alzheimers will forget things easily and need to be reminded what they were doing or what they were saying at any time. This memory loss is one of the most common signs and can result in forgetting names of their loved ones. Other signs include having trouble focusing on tasks like trying to pay your monthly bills. Later they may experience much trouble with the things they used to do routinely such as taking out the trash.

At the beginning onset of Alzheimer’s it may not be very noticeable that a person actually has Alzheimer’s until they are diagnosed by a doctor. Late in life as the Alzheimer progresses, which may be a few months or even years, an Alzheimer’s Caregiver may be needed if round the clock care is needed. The person that is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s may get to the point where they wander off, leave the stove on or the water running. These can all lead to a dangerous way of living for the person.

As a caregiver for someone with Alzheimer’s, you will have to be on top of their appointments and medical checkups. It is important to have organizational skills and the ability to keep yourself punctual to their schedules. This goes for life and death occasions when you have to give them their medicine on a daily basis. There are other important duties such as helping them with their bills and managing their finances.

An Alzheimer’s Caregiver job could be rewarding and the answer to helping others take care of their loved ones. When are you helping them with running errands, cleaning, bathing, exercise and even cooking, keep in mind, how much their lives have improved, even if they are sometimes unable to express that feeling due to their conditions. As with any caregiver job position, the level of trust between caregiver and cared one must be strong, because you are now part of their life.
