A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is devastating for any family. Though the illness can take months or even years to advance, it’s natural to consider what your situation might be like in the future. You and your loved ones will have many questions and concerns, chief among them being, “How well can I live with Alzheimer’s disease?” You may also be wondering, “What will it be like caring for someone with dementia?”
From safety and health concerns to personal care and housekeeping worries, the stress can be overwhelming. You can lessen the impact of Alzheimer’s and dementia on your life by creating a solid plan for how you will deal with the challenges ahead.
