Making the Right Choice
for a Person with

Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia

1. Keeping Your Loved One at Home.
You can choose to care for a loved one at home or hire someone else to care for them at home. This option is appropriate, provided that your loved one is in very early stages of the disease process and has never wandered away from home. Once an individual progresses to the point that they begin to wander, their personal safety risk increases dramatically. It is also important to remember that, while at-home care can be the best solution in early stages of Alzheimer's Disease and dementia, the demands on the caregiver can lead to both physical and emotional exhaustion.

2. Choosing a Nursing Home.
The nursing home option is designed for individuals who are confined to bed, require restraints to control behavior, or need more institutional care due to more serious health issues. Emphasis of the nursing home setting is more focused on the physical needs of the individual, rather than the total quality of life which involves a more complete focus on social, emotional, and physical well being.
