If Alzheimer’s is changing your life …
It can be terrifying if someone you love has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The feeling of helplessness, of being out of control and the pain of seeing someone you love slowly disappearing can leave you wondering how you will cope – and whether you are up to it.
Reg was my father and he had Alzheimer’s. I learned the hard way – but discovered some very effective strategies to improve the quality of life of my father and everyone who loved him. I can’t change the destination for you, but I can make the journey better for you.
A positive approach
When you’re faced with a future with someone who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease it can be frightening. It can be hard to imagine what life will be like as your loved one gradually forgets everything about you and your shared life.
You won’t forget your love for them – but they won’t be able to respond and yet will be more and more reliant on your support. It’s a tough future to accept – and it’s up to you to decide whether to become a victim of circumstances or to take charge of what happens next.
There are a number of strategies that the medical profession rarely suggest and which will make a significant difference to your quality of life and that of your loved one#
What can you do about it?
If you’re ready to take positive action you can learn how to:
- Ask the right questions of medical experts and health care professionals.
- Understand what works and what doesn’t
- Take action at each stage so you manage things better – for all of you.
- How to be proactive so the outcomes make life richer for you and your family
You don’t have to be at the mercy of this disease; you can learn how to cope – not just struggle to get through every day. You can use the strategies that I found made a big difference to me and to Reg.
