Suggestions to Consider When Caring for an Elderly Loved One with Alzheimer’s and Narcissism

hospice care diamond bar a-1 home careAlzheimer’s disease is already a difficult one to deal with when caring for an elderly loved one.  Even the most pleasant people can become aggressive and verbally abusive due to changes in the brain structure.  Add narcissism to the mix, and you’ve got yourself one heck of a situation.  Knowing your parent’s disposition, you probably have been dreading elder care for some time, but senior care is inevitable if your elderly loved one’s physical health has been steadily declining in recent years.

The Risks of Senior Care on Your Own

When caring for your parent, the last thing you want is false, unfair accusation of you taking advantage of your elderly loved one.  With narcissism, this is precisely what happens to responsible adult sons or daughters who take on elder care on their own.  Rumors circulate viciously among neighbors, cops show up at your house for suspicion of elder abuse, and your parent continues to be highly demanding and impossible to live with.  You’ve hired 24-hour caregivers from private ads around Diamond Bar and they have all quit on you because they can’t deal with your parent’s sociopathic behavior.

The Future of Alzheimer’s Care for the Baby Boomer Generation

????????????????????????????????????????Thanks to advances in medical technology, seniors are living well into their 80’s, 90’s and beyond.  Social and environmental conditions in the United States are improving, and the elderly are living large and well.  By the year 2030, the senior population numbers are projected to increase to 72 million, which will account for 20% of the United States’ population.  Although we are happy to report that more and more children will be able to meet their great-grandparents, this also means that the risk for Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia also increases.  This also means that home care will continue to be in great demand for the years to come because seniors would rather receive high quality care in the comfort of their own home than in a residential facility, and this is where A-1 Home Care in Diamond Bar comes in.
