Alzheimer's care starts out innocently enough, but will demand more and more from you over time. Here's a short road map to help plan your best route. Are you already providing care for a parent or relative? This is an illness that will test your limits... it will stay one step ahead of you. Every time you think you finally have a problem behavior under control, the next dramatic change will knock you off balance. So take 15 minutes and I will give you the best overview of what to expect...and use it to make a back-up plan. I guarantee you will hear some stuff that is completely new.
Managing the diffcult dementia behaviors can be a 24/7 job without a break. It also can be a job that you feel like you're managing alone. What happens when the behaviors become too much? What can you do to ensure you and your caree stay safe?
