- Live Better with Alzheimer's Disease

Learning your mother or father has a cognitive disease such as Alzheimer’s or another dementia is a very scary and overwhelming situation.

You probably feel frustrated that things seem out of your control. You might feel that your own life is being taken from you. Maybe your relationship is suffering when it needs to be flourishing.

You don't need or deserve the guilt associated with these feelings.

Wouldn't you rather feel confident, in control, and have the peace of mind that you are doing the best for them?

You can, but the complexity of the disease should not be underestimated. Eliminating environmental triggers to reduce undesirable behaviors, will help them stay safe, happy, and engaged at home.

This may possibly slow the progression, and allow you to better enjoy your time together.

But it takes special planning and implementation.

Professionals have been kicking around the term aging in place for a couple of decades now, but never with an emphasis on helping our loved ones who have Alzheimer’s or other dementia.

It’s not about aging in place – it’s about living in an environment that meets your needs whether you’re perfectly healthy, have a mobility issue, or struggle with the complications of dementia.

Nobody instantly moves into a memory-care community upon diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or other dementia. In fact, estimates say that between 60 to 80% of all people with dementia are cared for in a private residence. Worldwide that’s somewhere around 26 to 35 million people.

If you’re over 40 then you’ve probably already realized that your home is not as “friendly” as it was when you were younger – the lighting is less adequate, the stairs are a pain to climb, and why do you keep tripping over that throw rug that has always been there?

Now imagine a person with Alzheimer’s, whose judgment, visual perception, coordination, and memory are waning, living in the same house. You should quickly realize that your home isn’t Alzheimer’s friendly either.

There are a lot of modifications that can be done to improve a home for a family living with someone who has Alzheimer's or another dementia.

Some are inexpensive or even free, while others can get quite costly. However, when compared to the average cost of a quality memory care facility (upwards of $100K annually), the expenses are small.

When possible, professionals should be involved. But it’s not easy finding and affording someone trained in making a home Alzheimer’s friendly. So you're left to learn on your own.

There are four primary elements, or aspects, of an Alzheimer's Friendly home that I want to help you with. By focusing on them, you can reduce, and often eliminate, the undesirable, and unhealthy, behaviors associated with dementia.

This may possibly slow the progression, and allow you to enjoy your time together.

These include:

  • Safety - does the home promote independence while while keeping everyone safe?
  • Function - does the home foster successful outcomes with activities of daily living?
  • Stimulation - are there provisions to keep the individual mentally and physically engaged?
  • Triggers - has the environment been improved to eliminate triggers which result in undesirable behaviors?
