Due to the progressive nature of Alzheimer’s disease, families often have difficulty knowing when their loved one has reached the point of needing professional memory care. In addition, they often struggle with conflicting emotions of guilt and relief when thinking about letting go of their caregiver roles.
By the middle stages of the disease, 24-hour professional memory care, and supervision is usually necessary to allow a loved one with Alzheimer’s – and their family members – the best quality of life possible. Experts in memory care have created guidelines to help families know when the time is right to move to round-the-clock care. Here are some important questions experts suggest asking yourself to help you evaluate your situation:
It’s easy to feel a tinge of guilt when answering “yes” to any of these questions, but acknowledging that you’re unable to provide the best care for your loved one doesn’t mean you’ve failed. In fact, seeking ways to give them the best quality of life possible proves you have their best interests at heart.
