Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care
For family members or caretakers, caring for an individual that has Alzheimer’s disease or dementia can be an ongoing grief process as you see your loved one’s abilities and memories slowly fade away.The person afflicted with this disease begins to act in different and sometimes upsetting ways. Confusion, anger and sadness is common for both parties involved. Since this is a progressive disease, their needs will begin to increase, and your caregiving duties will become more challenging. This will happen concurrently as your loved ones lose their ability to verbalize appreciation for all of your hard work.
Taking care of people suffering with dementia or Alzheimer’s can feel like a thankless job. Sovereign Royal Care’s caregivers bond with our clients through patient care and companionship, they problem-solve, and encourage family and loved ones to attend support groups.
It is not uncommon for family members to presume that the spouse or nearest family member can continue caring for this person, but that’s not always the case. Care giving is a major responsibility that grows over time. People who are taking care of this person usually have their own health issues, jobs and other responsibilities. Allowing a Sovereign Royal Care professional to come in and help is essential to ensure that the needs of the Alzheimer’s patient are met, and that the family is supported and temporarily relieved of duties.

• Overwhelming emotions as your family members’ or loved one’s abilities decrease
