Family caregivers do so much for their loved ones that they sometimes neglect their own healthâ€”and that could put them at higher risk for Alzheimer's disease.
Americans who have just reached or are approaching their senior years are at highest risk of this potentially deadly disease.
Home care helps millions of seniors remain safe and independent in their own homes. Most families pay for home care themselves, but they should be aware of all their options.
While the rate continues to increase in some countries, studies suggest that Americans are making lifestyle choices that lower their risk.
I want you to know how much we have enjoyed [caregiver] and what a godsend she has been -- very calming, speaks softly, and doesn't let Mom get the best of her. I had to take Mom to the doctor on Monday and [caregiver] went with us. I couldn't have made it without her. Mom is harder to get along with these days which I know is common as health problems worsen but it was really beneficial to have [caregiver] "voice of reason". Mom really responded to her and that took the pressure off of me. Having [caregiver] is such a relief to me.
