More than 26 million worldwide suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. That’s a staggering statistic to consider, but when one of those millions is someone you love, you’re more concerned with life at home.
Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia presents a dual challenge for a caregiver. First, you have to address your loved one’s daily physical needs, and then you must reconcile their slipping emotional state. As the disease destroys their brain, they’ll suffer symptoms including confusion, anger, mood swings a loss of language skills.
As their condition worsens, they’ll recognize you less and may even develop behavior abnormal to their personality—swearing, insulting you or even being physically violent. For a spouse or child of someone with Alzheimer’s, everyday care can be exhausting.
