Evaluating the Pros and Cons of Care for Alzheimer’s In Different Settings

Filed under: Alzheimer's — seniorlivingguide @ 12:24 pm

By Adinah East

If you are a senior caregiver, you probably enjoy being close to the person you care for and enjoy many aspects of caregiving. During difficult days, perhaps you wish there were some hard and fast rules about caring for someone with Alzheimer’s in the home or making a change to 24 hour Alzheimer care in a memory care facility.

Making decisions about living arrangements while caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease is a personal decision between the caregiver and senior. There aren’t any definitive rules to follow, but there are a few cues to suggest that one setting may be preferable over another .

The conversation about changing the setting for the individual with Alzheimer’s may come about because of the best interests of the patient, the caregiver, or both.

A senior who lives with symptoms of dementia may be too unsafe in the family home, even with 24 hour Alzheimer care.  When caring for someone with Alzheimer’s, it may be time to reconsider the care setting when the person needs constant medical attention. The senior may also benefit from the social structure in a memory care facility.

Caregivers often start out their duties with a joyful attitude. As the demands of caregiving mound, their health and well-being deteriorate. When the needs of the patient exceed the caregiver’s abilities or if they are neglecting their work and family life, it signals a time to reconsider continuing to give care at home.

 

Pros and Cons of Caring for Someone with Alzheimer’s at Home

A 2012 survey showed that 90% of seniors want to remain living in their homes . The benefits of keeping elders at home typically outweigh the benefits of admitting them to a nursing home or memory care center. 

Elderly people are happiest when they can wake up to familiar surroundings and enjoy their regular routines, surrounded by the people they love. Elderly people want to live according to their own rules and set their own pace for daily living. To learn more about how to deal with Alzheimer care read this post!

Despite the many benefits to keeping elderly people at home for as long as possible, the physical and emotional demands on the caregiver can become overwhelming. As the caregiver’s stress increases, the caregiver may begin to resent the duties and the toll it takes on his or her own life.

Pros and Cons of Care for Alzheimer’s in a Memory Care Facility

Moving to a memory care facility is almost never the Alzheimer’s patient’s first choice. When in-home care becomes impossible, there are benefits built-in to a residential memory care setting. Doctors are on-call around the clock. Many professions of caring staff provide personal care, social work, activities, meals, housekeeping, security and laundry.

Having these duties taken care of lets family members and friends focus on their relationship with the Alzheimer’s patient during the final stage of life. It can be a difficult adjustment as the Alzheimer’s patient may experience emotional outbursts caused by fear or paranoia. In time, most patients adjust to the new environment.

After weighing all the pros and cons, your best answer may be to try to acquire additional in-home care for Alzheimer’s. Getting a few days of respite also goes a long way towards preventing caregiver burnout. When none of that works, most senior facilities are happy to have you come and get a tour of their facility, see their programs, and get acquainted with staff. You may have a better comfort level with facility care after spending a little time there.
