Finding out that you or a loved one has Alzheimer's disease can be shocking news. Learning everything you can about the disease and what to expect in the future, including symptoms and long-term care needs, will help you feel empowered to face this life-changing diagnosis. It is natural to have a long list of questions when Alzheimer’s disease impacts your family. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
What Medications Can a Person With Alzheimer’s Take?
There are a number of different approaches doctors can take for medications for people with Alzheimer’s disease. Some medications slow down the progression of the disease in some patients, while other medications can be used to treat the most severe symptoms of Alzheimer’s, like hallucinations. There is not one, straightforward path for Alzheimer’s treatment. Instead, doctors will try different combinations of medications to see which offer the best results with the fewest side effects. Which medications can be used also depends on a person with Alzheimer’s overall health and the stage of the disease. Be sure to consult with the doctor before using over-the-counter medications.
How Can I Minimize Symptoms?
If you have a loved one with Alzheimer’s, you can help minimize his or her confusion and anxiety in a few different ways. Strive to stick to a regular schedule, so there are few disruptive changes. Remind him or her of the day and date periodically. Label things around the home. Above all else, remember to stay calm and patient. Your anxiousness will exacerbate your loved one’s feelings of panic.
What Kind of Care Is Required?
Eventually, all people with Alzheimer’s disease require around-the-clock care and assistance with all daily activities. An assisted living community with memory care services can help the family meet the care needs of their loved one with Alzheimer’s.

When someone you love has Alzheimer’s disease, making decisions about his or her care can be a challenge. Although family care may be enough initially, most families cannot offer the kind of continuous care their loved one eventually needs as the disease progresses. However, sending a person with Alzheimer’s to a large nursing facility is not always right, as the unfamiliar surroundings and lack of personal attention can trigger anxiety. With Avalon Memory Care, you have an alternative. Our facilities offer 24-hour compassionate care in small, personalized settings that feel like home. Learn about the memory care services we provide in this infographic, and please share this helpful information with family and friends facing similar choices.
