Why is Caring for Alzheimer’s Patients Stressful?

Why is Caring for Alzheimer’s Patients Stressful?

Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia where a person begins to lose memory and other important mental functions. Yes! It is a disease in which the cells of the brain gradually die and this makes the brain work less with the passage of time. The patients would eventually forget most of what has happened, making it difficult for people around them to handle their mood swings. 

It has been found that many caregivers are stressed out physically and emotionally when they have to care for Alzheimer’s patients on a regular or an extended basis. One of the reasons for this is because they need to be alert round the clock and keep an eye on their patients to ensure that they don’t harm themselves. 

The patient’s health and memory might decline with each passing day and they may not be able to even recognize their caregivers and some patients are known to attack the nurses out of mistrust or suspicion. 

Moreover, caregivers feel guilty if they tend to be rude or complain to others about their patients. They feel sad and it makes them miserable afterward. But, they do need to understand that talking to others might help them feel better and also reduces the stress of having to bear the burden alone the entire time. 

With more people facing the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s, the risk of more caregivers feeling stressful also increases. New ways have to be found to make sure that the caregivers can relax and unburden themselves from time to time. 

Family members who act as caregivers have it even tougher watching their loved ones not remember them or the memories they’ve made together. They need a break from the situation to care for themselves first.

Testimonials

We had hired a patient care attendant for my wife who was recuperating after a hip surgery and was completely bed ridden. Youcare carefully analyzed our requirement and understood the preferences and nature of my wife before attaching a caregiver to us. Our caregiver was very caring, punctual and always had a smile on her face. She not only attended to my wife`s needs but also encouraged her to become independent. Within 6 months my wife could actually start walking. I will really recommend YouCare to everyone in need of professional care services.

Their babysitter is now like a member of our family who we can trust and rely upon for taking care of each and every need of our 4 year old daughter. This is a professional organisation managed by well educated professionals wanting to do good work and provide exceptional services. Will certainly recommend to all working couples to reach out to them.
