How You Can Support Your Loved One Who Is Struggling

how-you-can-support-your-loved-one-who-is-struggling

When you hear the news that your loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, it is one that completely changes the course of life, and as their illness progresses over time, it is heartbreaking to see them struggling in their daily life. Helping Hands Hale is here to support your family in such a tough time through Dementia Alzheimer’s Care.

As a healthcare service provider in Hawaii, we know how difficult it can be to deal with a disease that affects a person’s behavior, thinking, and overall function. Taking care of a loved one who has Alzheimer’s requires a high level of effort, time, and patience. With that, we are giving you a few tips that can show support to your loved one:

  • Always show that you respect their wishes

    It is best to talk to your loved one about their plans for their future as early as possible, and you must honor it fully.

  • Remember that they will lose their short-term memory first

    The initial stages will often cause your loved one to lose their items or forget tasks, so keep that in mind and practice patience.

  • Keep them safe

    Due to their health condition, your loved one becomes vulnerable to life-threatening accidents, so get rid of any hazards at home.

To ensure your loved one’s health and safety at all times, you may need our help as we offer home care services. Under our care, we will ensure that your loved one will receive nothing short of excellence, how they deserve it.

If you are looking for a reliable home care service provider in Hawaii, we have a team of caregivers ready to be the one you can lean on. For inquiries, contact us today!

The state of Hawaii has determined that most caregivers are considered employees and in order to LEGALLY hire and pay your OWN caregiver, you must have a company established with State and Federal tax ID numbers. In addition to their hourly pay you must also pay for Workers Compensation Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance, General Liability Insurance, and if the caregiver works more than 20 hours per week you must also provide medical insurance for each caregiver. Therefore; choosing an established agency such as Helping Hands Hale is an affordable and easy solution that will save you time, money, and relief from being in violation of State and Federal Labor Laws.
