Understanding 3 Stages of Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease

While every patient is different, when a person is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, they usually have experienced minor memory loss or mild cognitive impairment (MCI) during the early stage. This disease often goes undiagnosed, and in some cases misdiagnosed, for years before the symptoms become evident.

Some stages overlap. The changes in the brain that occur during the preclinical stages of Alzheimer’s Disease may be present but undetected for years or even decades before any noticeable symptoms occur. Often, by the time these changes appear, and the impairment becomes noticeable, the disease has progressed to the middle stage. Many times, the initial stages are either ignored or mistaken for depression or another illness.

Memory Loss

While the hippocampus is the part of the brain responsible for forming new memories and learning new information, it is often damaged in Alzheimer’s. This means that people with Alzheimer’s disease have a hard time remembering recent events and often repeat conversations. While hippocampus activity is important for recent or present memory retrieval, it is less important for long-term memories. Therefore, in the initial stages of the disease, a person may remember a past event perfectly despite having a damaged hippocampus.

The first indicator of Alzheimer’s disease is often the semantic memory. A patient with the disease has a progressive decline in general knowledge that they once could recall easily. For instance, questions about celebrities and well-known logos are more difficult for them to answer. In later stages, they may also have difficulty identifying objects and animals. Some people with the disease can no longer identify familiar objects, but they may remember how they felt about an important event or relationship. Even if they don’t remember specific details, they may recognize certain objects or recall emotions from seeing a drawing or photograph.

Dementia

Dementia in Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disorder in which a person loses cognitive abilities. Researchers studied this condition and the effect of executive function on the severity of dementia. Some studies even show that age can influence cognitive function. However, the current state of our knowledge of dementia is still limited.

The Stroop task and the Stroop color-word tests have been considered the gold standard for assessing impairment specifically in the prefrontal cortices of the brain. Researchers have used the Stroop method to determine the effect of both age and dementia on brain performance since the 1930s. Other studies have examined the role of negative priming, where subjects with Alzheimer’s tend to have more difficulty with the tasks. Studies on the effect of aging and dementia and memory performance have revealed that different types of dementia affect different components of memory and attention. For example, age-related differences in inhibitory functioning are found in the Stroop tests, meaning healthy elderly participants were more likely to take their time to comprehend the questions and answer correctly. Older people with mild Alzheimer’s disease suffer worse performance in the task.

Nursing Care Resources

For people who are caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease, there are many nursing care resources for Alzheimer’s. Many of these resources will help the caregiver better understand the disease, teach them how to manage the disease, and provide additional support. In addition to providing information on specific conditions, they will provide practical information for long-term care communities. Take the time to learn about your local community resources and be well informed before you decide on a care facility or home nursing provider.

Medicaid is a state-funded program for the elderly and low-income families. Individuals with Alzheimer’s may qualify for Medicaid benefits, which will cover the cost of nursing home care. Each state administers Medicaid programs separately, and the benefits of caring for an individual with dementia may vary. This information can help you find out if Medicaid will cover the care your loved one needs.

Home Health Care – 3 Types of Angelic Help at Home

 

Home Health Care Services

Are you considering hiring a home health care aide?

Are you familiar with their duties and credentials? 

Learn more about home health aide services and the qualifications required for home care nursing.

Listed below are helpful resources and things to consider before hiring home health care. 

Home Health Care Aide Job Duties

Care services range from basic companionship to specialized medical and nursing services. For example, a patient who has recently been discharged from the hospital after an illness or surgery may require home visits from an RN (registered nurse), LPN (licensed practical nurse), or CNA (certified nurse aide). In some instances, a patient may need more specialized care such as physical therapy, speech therapy, pain and medication management, mental health counseling, or social services. Home health aides may help with other personal or medical needs, such as arranging to install safety and mobility equipment or checking medical devices to confirm they are working properly, or even helping to find a nutritious meal delivery service.

Three Types of Home Health Care

  1. Non-medical companionship and assistance
  2. Trained licensed nurses – (RN), LPN, or CNA
  3. Specialized medical professionals 

Whatever level of care is needed, the goal is to ensure that the client can stay in their own home and live as independently as possible. Non-medical home health aides help patients with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as eating, dressing, and bathing. Usually, the home health aide works at the client’s residence, but may also assist with trips outside the home. 

Non-Medical Home Health Aide Training and Certification

The role of a home health care aide is essential, although it does not require a medical degree or license. To work for a nurse registry, The Florida Agency of Healthcare Administration requires home health aides to complete an approved 40-hour HHA course. Once training is completed, the candidate registers with the state and takes the competency evaluation exam to obtain their certificate. To work for a Medicare agency, there is a 75-hour training program, exam, and certificate. 

Private Skilled Nursing Care at Home

Trained medical professionals provide personalized care to patients in the comfort of their own homes. 

Private Nursing Care At Home

Skilled medical care can range from short to long-term assistance. Long-term medical care might entail physical therapy or blood pressure monitoring. Short-term skilled nursing care is often intended to minimize the length of hospital stays following a major illness or surgery and may include wound care, or medication management. Most medical issues can be taken care of in-home.

Payment Options

Home health care services are often covered by Medicaid, private insurance plans, or long-term care insurance. Clients may choose to pay out-of-pocket for services that aren’t covered by their insurance. It is important to make sure that your provider accepts your coverage before hiring them. A home health agency may also accept payment from community organizations or government agencies. There are also government programs available such as VA benefits. Regardless of your funding source, Mazaltov Home Care can help you identify the best payment option for your care and may be able to recommend helpful resources.

How A Nurse Registry Can help

A nurse registry such as Mazaltov Home Care is an excellent way to find a qualified in-home caregiver. 

Home health aides, registered nurses, and other medical specialists are available to assist you with the care that is needed. Nurse registry services may include short or long-term assistance and respite care. 

A good nurse registry will take the time to fully understand your individual needs and match you with the best possible care providers. You can meet and interview prospective providers, and it is always the client’s choice who they feel comfortable hiring. 

The nurse registry staff has vast knowledge and expertise that may include resources with government and community agencies. Further, they may offer assistance and recommendations to help make the home safer and more convenient. 

A nurse registry can provide continuity of care, coordinating with your physician and other caregivers and family. They can also help with a transition between health care settings. 

The nurse registry team will monitor your condition closely and help determine how much support is needed from a caregiver. Using a nurse registry can help you avoid the hassle of having to go through the process alone. 

Once a care plan is agreed upon, the nurse registry will match you with a caregiver that will perfectly meet your family’s needs. You can be assured that the nurse registry has carefully checked caregiver credentials, conducted background checks, and evaluated their qualifications before introducing them to you or your loved one. These thorough assessments, make it much easier to find a competent, dependable, and skilled care provider. Further, they function as a go-between in case you have any complaints or concerns.

After a successful placement, you can begin to enjoy the benefits of having your care provider come to your home.

Sometimes, they just don’t think about these things, and other times, they are unsure of how to make a plan. You can help your elderly loved one plan for various emergency situations. Then, you or a home care services provider can help your elderly loved one to prepare or practice what to do in these situations.


Creating the Emergency Plans


One of the things that you are going to want to do first is to assist your elderly loved one in creating emergency plans.

Getting an Emergency Supply Kit


There are various companies that sell emergency supply kits. However, you or senior care providers could also help your elderly loved one to make their own kit. Some things that they should have in the emergency supply kit include:

  • Candles
  • Generator
  • Bandaids

Homecare: 4 Ways In-Home Care Helps People With Diabetes

Homecare: Over one-quarter of older U.S. adults have diabetes

It’s also estimated that over seven million adults don’t realize they have it. Your dad’s doctor diagnosed him with diabetes. For National Diabetes Month take time to learn more about this common chronic health condition and how home care aides can help your dad.

Help With Grocery Shopping

Presbyopia is a common eye condition that occurs sometime after the 40th birthday. It’s the reason magnifying glasses exist. It becomes hard to read small print without magnification. When your dad is trying to read food labels in a store, presbyopia can make it seem impossible.

With in-home care aides accompanying him on grocery shopping trips, your dad can let someone else read labels. He won’t accidentally purchase a salad dressing or sauce with added sugar. He’ll have someone there to read the labels on the juice to make sure it’s all juice and doesn’t have added sweeteners like corn syrup or honey.

Encouragement With Daily Exercise

When he’s diagnosed with diabetes, your dad’s doctor will recommend he loses weight and exercise regularly. He needs to go out every day for a walk or to engage in an activity he enjoys. If he has a caregiver to join him on walks, he won’t have to walk alone. That can encourage him to become and stay active.

Better Meals and Snacks

When you have diabetes, maintaining blood sugar levels is vital. Your dad should be eating smaller meals throughout the day to avoid big spikes with a large meal. With a caregiver’s help, he can have someone else available to cook meals for him and prepare snacks.

That caregiver can keep track of the time that’s passed between snacks and meals and make sure he’s regularly eating. Instead of a big breakfast and an afternoon of fasting before a large dinner, he could have that breakfast broken into three smaller morning meals. Your dad’s dinner could be spread out all afternoon and evening.

Homecare: Reminders to Check His Blood Sugar Levels

Caregivers can also remind your dad to check his blood sugar levels. If his levels are too low or too high, he has a caregiver there to ensure he takes steps to correct them. His home care aide can also remind him to keep track of the levels if his doctor asks him to keep a journal.

Homecare service providers can help your dad manage daily routines when he has diabetes. Learn more about the benefits of hiring caregivers for medication reminders, transportation, and meal preparation. Call an in-home care specialist to get started.

5 Signs That Your Dad Needs 24-Hour Home Care

Your dad’s need for home care services doesn’t meet a 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. world.

He has a chronic health condition or another reason that he shouldn’t be alone at any hour. Because of this, he needs home care at odd hours of the night and early morning. This is where caregivers come in.

Instead of having caregivers available during the day and being alone all night, your dad has caregivers with him all day and night. How do you know if this is right for him?

You Worry About Him Being Alone

Your dad has diabetes or another chronic health condition. You worry about him feeling ill in the middle of the night and having no one around. With caregivers available throughout the night, you don’t have to worry.

He Wanders

Your dad has dementia, and he’s starting to wander. He often wakes up in the middle of the night and tries to go outside for a walk. You have alarms set and wake up, but it’s leading to sleep deprivation. You’re exhausted and need sleep.

Hire caregivers and have them keep your dad inside. He’ll have caregivers working in shifts to ensure he doesn’t try to go outside.

He Takes Medications That Require Him to Wake Up and Take a Dose

Your dad takes several medications each day. One of his prescriptions requires him to take a dose in the middle of the night. The problem is that he often sleeps through an alarm.

He could have caregivers wake him up and make sure he takes the dose on time. When he’s done taking the pill and sipping some water, he goes back to sleep without having to get up.

He’s Weak and Prone to Falling

Your dad has a health issue that makes him weak. He’s fallen while trying to get to the bathroom at night. With caregivers in the house during the night, he has someone to lean on when he wakes up and needs to use the toilet.

Home Care: He Is Scared of Being Alone

Your dad may not have any specific reasons for home care services throughout the day and night. He may simply fear being alone during the night. If he would be more comfortable having companionship services at night because he doesn’t sleep well, arrange 24-hour home care.

Once you know what care services your dad needs, call a home care agency. Arrange 24-hour home care and know that he’s never alone, no matter what time it is.

Tips to Help Seniors Suffering From Psoriasis

If you have a senior struggling with Psoriasis, it can be challenging to deal with.

Even a parent with a senior home care provider may need extra help from the doctors. Psoriasis is common and can irritate the skin in various ways. National World Psoriasis Day on October 29th aims to highlight and show others how Psoriasis really affects someone. There is no cure for psoriasis, however, there are things that can help relieve the symptoms. It may be time to learn more about it. This knowledge will allow you to help the seniors in need.

In your local area, there may be specific events, but if not, there may be online events where you can learn about Psoriasis. Senior home care can help your parents live better and remind them to bathe, eat, sleep, and keep their routines healthy. A caregiver may help a senior go to and from doctor appointments for their Psoriasis and even help bathe the seniors if necessary. Having a senior home care provider should not be overlooked if your parent is struggling with Psoriasis.

As of right now, Psoriasis cannot be treated and can be really irritating for a senior to struggle with. There are more than three million US cases every year, making it a common problem to deal with. This disease can last for years or be a lifelong problem. There are some treatment methods, but it may be uncomfortable for a senior.


What Are Symptoms of Psoriasis?


Lab testing and imaging are usually never required when diagnosing Psoriasis. Most doctors can identify this disease based on a set of symptoms a senior has. It will be important for a senior home care provider to take note of these symptoms, and if they get worse, they should encourage the senior to see the doctor. Keep in mind, that these symptoms can vary by case.

  • Red areas of skin with silver scales
  • Small scaly spots
  • Dry or cracked skin
  • Dry skin that bleeds
  • Itching or soreness
  • Ridged nails
  • Swollen joints
  • Stiff Joints

If your parent has never had Psoriasis before, but you or the senior home care provider starts noticing these symptoms, it’s time to go to the doctor. Sometimes cases can clear up and get better; other times, it can be a lifelong disease. A caregiver can help provide transport to the doctor and even help a senior keep more hygienic, but they will not be allowed to touch any medication for the senior.


Home Care: How to Help With Psoriasis?


You can help relieve some of the pain, or a senior home care provider can assist with some basic activities that will greatly impact the comfort of the senior. Learning all you can about this disease will help you take care of a parent or recommend ideas for the senior home care provider.

Ensure the senior is taking baths daily and even adding a few drops of soothing tea tree oil during the shower can help with inflammation and itching scales. A home care provider can help the senior stay moisturized, which will help with dry skin, and lastly, maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help a senior fight Psoriasis.

Senior Care: Stroke Recovery

With the increase in the population of older adults, senior home care services must be prepared to assist with stroke recovery.

Although most strokes are not life-threatening, some can be so severe that they affect life significantly. Therefore, skilled senior care nurses who are trained in stroke recovery are essential. Proper treatment helps ensure that the patient can improve every day and lead a happy and productive life even after a stroke.

What Are Your Options for Senior Home Care?

Many options are available if you are looking for senior home care assistance for an elderly parent or an adult friend who has recently had a stroke. Senior home care agencies and medical caregivers will come to your home to provide elder care services. These services can include but are not limited to laundry, meal planning, and shopping for groceries. Senior home care is a good option because it helps to keep your loved one close to you. In addition, seniors can benefit from senior home care services for older adults by receiving around-the-clock assistance with daily activities like bathing, dressing, exercising, and eating.

Taking Care of Older Adults During Stroke Recovery

If you have an elderly who experienced a stroke, your top priority should be to seek qualified care from an approved senior home care assistance provider. One of the most challenging things for an older adult with a stroke is to hold a conversation. As a result, they often lose the ability to speak or to cope with simple tasks. Some older adults with a stroke may be bedridden, making it challenging to move around or engage in physical activity. They may struggle with getting out of bed or going to the bathroom, making it even more challenging to care for themselves.

Senior Home Care Services Can Help

You will want to hire a senior home care assistant from an agency that is specifically experienced with stroke recovery. The home care provider can give them the care and attention they need to lead a routine life. You will want to find a caregiver with both the experience and good nature to take care of an elderly patient who has had a stroke. Your agency can help you choose the right care provider so you can be confident that the staff is qualified to provide special physical and emotional support to the seniors during the stroke recovery process.

Getting the Support Your Senior Need

It can be very difficult for the elder to admit that they need help, especially if they have lived alone or with their family for a long time. As a result, many older adults can become isolated. Senior home care assistance is an excellent way for an older adult to get some social interaction and also help with daily tasks, such as cleaning and cooking. You would want your seniors to have such support around them, especially since they are more vulnerable to injuries after a stroke.

Senior Care: Stroke Recovery Conclusion

It’s important to be proactive when taking care of older adults who have had a stroke. Keep your elder’s medical record handy so that you can quickly go over it if anything changes. Have your caregiver go through the medical history of your senior so that you can be aware of any other issues they may have besides the cognitive problem in case of an emergency. Finally, don’t hesitate to enlist help from a professional whenever you need it.

Reach out to us today if you have any questions or want to learn more about the senior care assistance services for your seniors!

Swimming

Sports


There are many great sports that can help to improve concentration. Some of the best options include racquetball, squash, and tennis. Most of the time, these sports can be played indoors, so your elderly loved one can stay cool, as well.


The good thing about these sports is that they encourage friendly competition while allowing people to socialize. If your elderly loved one does these sports regularly, even once or twice a week, they should help to put their concentration back on track.


Exercises for Seniors – Conclusion
