Communicating with your loved one who has Alzheimer’s is a difficult task. Acknowledging that this battle is not only hard on them, but hard on yourself as well is something that is difficult to convey to the person suffering from the disease, but it is something that can repair your relationship.
In this video below, a caregiver professional gives some tips on how to communicate better with a person who has Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s continues to grow costlier, and the prevalence of this tragic disease only continues to grow. Many American elders depend on Medicare for coverage of treatment they need during their golden years, but Medicare does not cover long-term care for Alzheimer’s leaving family and loved ones to shoulder a care burden currently estimated to be worth over $217 billion.
This cannot continue!
You can help America’s Alzheimer’s patients by signing our petition demanding Medicare step up and cover 100% of long-term care for any person with Alzheimer’s or other dementias whose doctor has recommended it.Whizzco
