Dementia Care Requires Sufficient Energy to be Provided at Home

By Rohit Sharma Subscribe to RSS | April 25th 2012 | Views:

Providing sufficient care for dementia patients may turn out to be quite challenging task that may badly affect the emotional condition of the care givers. It becomes quite worse for the patients who are the main bread earners of their families and have wife and children to be taken care of. Moreover, the stress may also adversely affect able-bodied members at home both physically and psychologically who spend a lot time behind the dementia patients. Each of the family members has his/her personal life. As a consequence of the cruel force of the disease, no one can escape its grasp. The family structure is badly hit thus turning the personal lives topsy-turvy. The children of the affected father or mother lose their smile and cheerful spirit. Professional caregiver can help in this matter to relieve the family members from depression. He/she possesses the desired training and certification to ensure comprehensive caring to the dementia patient.

Dementia care may prove to be quite uphill challenge for the family members to conquer. Due to ignorance regarding handling this disease and the affected patients, they themselves fall victims of several physical and mental ailments. Anxiety and depression become part of even the healthy family members. It is vital to maintain general fitness for the family caregivers as they need to undertake several activities beside the hired nurse or the care provider to ensure maximum support for the patients. Moreover, some members of the affected family need to take up jobs to ensure steady flow of income every month. Professional fields may be new avenues for them. It may add a mental hurdle to their agony. So, maintaining healthy lifestyle and sound mental condition hold the key to add value to dementia treatment regime at home.

Family members of dementia patient need to consult with a doctor for guidance about maintaining a ‘sound mind in sound body’. In case any of the family caregivers show signs of physical or mental ailment then there is an urgency to hire medical help and put the lifestyle on right path again. Professional caregivers may not be available round the clock. Moreover, middle-class families may find it tough to spend their hard-earned money behind hiring professionals in this field throughout the entire month or several months. Naturally, it becomes a responsibility for the able-bodied members at home to carry the task of care giving to their beloved one. Regular physical exercise and consuming healthy fruits in a timely and disciplined manner will help to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle. Yoga session will also help to control emotions and put down anxiety level.

There are several NGO communities and volunteer groups to maintain mental cool and strength. Moreover, the required help can be easily found on online community sites. It is suggested to mingle with society even for few hours per week to get in touch with the bigger and dynamic outside world. This interaction will help to inject fresh oxygen into troubled minds. It requires sufficient energy and resource to provide dementia care at home. The caregivers should be well-prepared to handle it.
