As people get older, their health can deteriorate. One possible outcome is a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s – a condition that can have a profound effect on family life and relationships. Getting the right help can reduce stress for a loved one with Alzheimer’s, as well as other members of the family.
Elderly care helps solve sibling disagreements
If one sibling shoulders more of the care responsibility for a parent with Alzheimer’s, this can lead to squabbles and disagreements over such things as finances, medical intervention and end-of-life-care.
In these cases, families should hold a meeting to decide what is best for their loved one, educating all siblings and other relatives about the nature of the situation. Responsibilities such as respite care, insurance, finances and home care can then be delegated – elderly care representatives can help with this.
