Ultimately, understanding how to best engage with an Alzheimer’s patient is the key to providing excellent care. Keep in mind that each patient is different, and many patients are more active at certain times of the day.
These activities may also differ depending on the level of progression in the particular patient; the majority of people living with Alzheimer’s are over the age of 65, but about 200,000 Americans under 65 have early-onset Alzheimer’s. Always be patient, trusting, and confident in your abilities to provide care.
