For many of us whose parents are in their “Third Age” or golden years of adulthood, the mere mention of Alzheimer’s disease can be frightening.  There are symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia such as “sun downing” or “late-day confusion” that can often be confused with delirium resulting from another condition such as a urinary tract infection (UTI). 

How can we know for certain whether our loved one’s symptoms are signs of Alzheimer’s or another condition, or just typical age-related changes? Families caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s, a type of dementia, need specialized support and assistance. Fortunately, there are many great resources in our community ready to help you to understand more about Alzheimer’s disease and memory related disorders or provide you and your loved one with the help you need. 

United HomeCare holds weekly Caregiver Support Groups led by a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Home Health Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Trainer who assists Alzheimer’s patients and family caregivers, offering guidance and individual and group counseling for the family caregiver.

UHC collaborates with experts to provide you with specialized care to alleviate symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s dementia, and works hand-in-hand with organizations such as The Alliance for Aging, The Mayor’s Initiative on Aging, and two State of Florida designated Memory Disorder Clinics—The Mt. Sinai Wien Center for Alzheimer’s and University of Miami Center for Cognitive Neuroscience and Aging—to assist Alzheimer’s patients and family caregivers.  Creating an environment that facilitates early diagnosis and promotes active treatment through proper education and training, and working together to educate and raise awareness of Alzheimer’s and memory related disorders will eventually improve the health of our community and bring you much needed “peace of mind.”

For more information about how United HomeCare can help you or your loved one, please call 305.716.0710.
