Caring for a loved one who is suffering from Alzheimer’s is extremely challenging. In fact, research suggests that those who are inexperienced with caring for those suffering from this ailment may themselves develop burnout and stress. This is why it is so important to join an Alzheimer’s support group.
About Our Alzheimer’s Support Group
Aston Gardens At Parkland Commons employs professionally trained staff and nurses who are experienced in caring for residents who have Alzheimer’s. Utilizing the services of such professionals instead of trying to do everything yourself will help avoid the stress and frustration that comes from inadequate treatment.
Benefits of Having Alzheimer’s Support Group in Your Retirement Community
The primary benefit of joining an Alzheimer’s support group is that those suffering from this disease will have new ways of coping with it. While there is not yet a cure for this debilitating disease, our staff has developed a number of techniques and methods which can be used to help patients manage the condition, and this includes special brain games and other tools.
Additionally, those suffering from this disease will have the opportunity to socialize with others while our staff takes care of their daily needs. Having someone else take care of laundry, housecleaning, grocery shopping, bill payments and medication administering on their behalf gives them the time and energy to better focus on managing their condition.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?
Alzheimer’s disease caretakers often find themselves in situations where their own needs may be neglected, and this is testament to the seriousness of the condition. However, transferring your loved one to a community like Aston Gardens At Parkland Commons will benefit the both of you, because they will get the professional care they need while you will have time to focus on your own life and goals.
Taking care of someone who has Alzheimer’s is a major undertaking, one that many people can’t handle, especially those who aren’t trained. This results in nights and days which can be both mentally and physically exhausting. The Alzheimer’s support that we provide is the best way to help your loved one manage the disease in an environment where they will be safe and secure, and you will have the time to tend to your own affairs.
Why Choose Aston Gardens At Parkland Commons’s Retirement Community?
Aging in general comes with a host of challenges, but those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease require special needs. Due to the high cost of healthcare, many family members attempt to care for their loved ones without professional assistance, but the consequences of doing so can be debilitating both for the caretakers themselves as well as the person who is suffering from the condition. It is for this reason that we recommend our living community. Residents have access to 24 hour care from nurses and staff who are trained to provide it.
