Will there be a future? (Posted late on 08/22 from 08/21)

It is very important to convey to your clients that early detection is essential – especially for their future. When you think about it, it has to be devastating to realize that the life you knew could simply slip away from you! But if you explain that planning care decisions, transportation options, living options, financial and legal matters can help ease the burden, you will be showing your clients that you believe that With Age Comes Respect.

If you have not been assigned as the elderly caregiver, your knowledge on this information could turn the tables, but it you have been assigned as their caregiver, you can be an essential part of building the right care team and social support network that your clients need to help them now and down the road. In fact, the Alzheimer’s Association has an awesome Alzheimer’s Navigator that you and they can use to plan ahead when the future could otherwise not seem as bright.

As a caregiver, the care and support you offer to both your clients and their family members will make it easier for everyone involved to live a more fruitful life – even if your clients do have Alzheimer’s disease or Dementia!
