Acknowledging signs of decline & when to seek supportive care
Part of our “Leading the Way for YOU” Educational Speaker Series
Are you caring for a loved one who has dementia? If so, you’re probably exhausted, stressed and used to the challenges that come along with caring for someone you love. But as you keep pushing forward, are you becoming blind to your loved one’s changing care needs? Every day Memory Outreach Specialist, Maureen Sirianni, works with families who have a loved one with dementia. Many people try to care for the loved one at home and, unfortunately, it takes a crisis involving a hospital or doctors to recognize the need for professional care. In your head you know what to do, but your heart tells you otherwise.
In this “Acknowledging Signs of Decline and When to Seek Supportive Care” video, Maureen guides families on topics like:
- Recognizing your loved one’s changing needs
- Concerns as your loved one’s physical and cognitive abilities decline
- How to manage your own emotions around your loved one’s needs
- The benefits of an organized senior living program
- Top questions among families and caregivers
