WHAT IS ALZHEIMERS DISEASE?

Alzheimer’s disease, which is the most common form of dementia, is still today an incurable degenerative disease. Neurons in certain parts of the brain are destroyed which leads to deficits in cognitive functions, such as memory, language skills and behavior. Caring for people with Alzheimer’s is a service we offer.

Early Alzheimer’s Symptoms can include

  • Memory loss and difficulty remembering recent actions, conversions and events.
  • Repeating questions after just a short period of time
  • Misplacing items, or leaving them in strange places
  • Feelings of disorientation or getting lost
  • Depression, irritability and/or apathy

ALZHEIMER CARE HOME COSTS

Cost of Alzheimers Care in care facilities varies considerably, depending on what type of facility it is and the level of care required.

The cost would be different for Assisted Living (ALFs), Residential Care and Nursing Homes. Also, different companies having varying costs and fees.

Residents of nursing homes generally have high care needs and complex medical conditions that require routine skilled nursing services. Due to the constant care needs of its residents, nursing homes are required by federal law to have a licensed nurse on duty 24 hours a day.

The average cost of care for nursing home care ranges between $6000 and $10,000 per month. Cost is determined by the level of care needed, the setting where the care is provided, and the geographic location.

  • Schedule Things wisely. Establishing a routine to make each day less confusing. Often it’s better to schedule tasks, such as bathing or medical appointments.

  • Taking your time. Allow the person to have frequent breaks and allow more time for tasks so that you don’t hurry them.
