MAGNOLIA INNOVATIVE SENIOR LIVING - Amanda ShieldsCaring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease can be incredibly physically and emotionally challenging. Alzheimer’s is an incurable and progressive disease which can span anywhere from 4-20 years. Although most of us desire to keep our loved ones at home with us, there will often come a time in the course of Alzheimer’s when an Alzheimer’s patient will require more care than your family is able to provide.

It is important early in the disease process to plan ahead – this can include truly understanding the options for different types of care, the financial burden this can bring, and the emotional toll it can take when you do need to look at other options for care.

The options for care can range from hiring private caregivers in your own home, to placing your loved one in a facility – either an Assisted Living Facility, a Memory Care Unit, or an Adult Foster Home. It is so important to understand the different levels of care these facilities can provide and the advantages and disadvantages each has to offer, as well as the cost of each facility.

It is never too early to plan ahead; talking with your loved one’s medical provider is also an important part – they can provide you with key information on what to expect as the disease progresses and can help guide you to support groups and information that will help with your planning.

Asking for the assistance of a professional who has a complete understanding of the disease process and care options available is an invaluable asset. Magnolia Innovative Senior Living and Amanda Shields can provide not only help with advance care planning, placement services, care management and health advocacy; she also has 2 wonderful adult care homes that specialize in the care of the patient with Alzheimer’s and all other forms of dementia.
