As the person with Alzheimer's moves through the stages, he or she will need more care. The medicine used to treat Alzheimer's only controls the symptoms; it cannot cure the disease. Their symptoms will get worse over time. Due to this you (the caregiver) will need more help also. Asking for help does not show weakness or lack of caring; but just the opposite. Asking for help shows your strength. Know your limits, take time for you as well. Make sure you build a support system. Taking care of a person with Alzheimer's can be stressful for you as the caregiver.
Home health care servies send a home health aide to your home to help you care for a person with Alzheimer's. Some home health aides are better trained and supervised than others.
