How to deal with Alzheimer Patients

texto-febrero-alzehimer-paloma

Alzheimer’s is an illness that is caused by a reduction in the size of the brain. It is degenerative, gradual, irreversible and disrupts the patient’s daily activities. It is linked to changes in mood, behaviour and psychotic disorders.


About 44 million people in the world suffer from some type of dementia, between 60 and 80% of which are related to Alzheimer. In Spain, around 820,000 people have Alzheimer’s.


Below we have outlined some useful advice for the care of this type of patient:

• Make theirliving space safe so that they can carry out their daily routine without having accidents

• Create a peaceful environment (avoid arguments, shouting, look into their eyes when talking to them with simple words and expressions and give them time to think before responding), it is also best if the space is recognisable to them; byputting a sign with a picture on the door of each room it will be easier for them to identify which one it is.

• Take certain security measures:

  • Close doors and windows
  • Remove any latches from doors
  • Limit access to stairs, the kitchen etc.
  • Put anti-slip bathmats and handrails in the shower
  • They should have personal identification on them with their name and telephone number in case they get lost when they go out.

• Provide them with a daily routine:

  • For when they have a bath/shower
  • Always place their personal items in the same place and keep them to a minimum
  • Establish a routine for activities (walks, moderate exercise, bedtime....)

• Encourage them to participate in family activities so that they feel part of the household.

• As long as it is possible, let them choose their clothes. Replace buttons with Velcro or elastic bands, shoes should have soles with a good grip but no laces.

• Practice memory and concentration exercises

• Pay attention to their diet: give them a varied and balanced diet, be aware of any weight loss, avoid food that they could choke on and make sure they remain hydrated.
