If your family member is suffering from Alzheimer's, there are certain things you have to know. For instance, it might not be so bad if you would bring with you a list of queries you want to ask your loved one's medical doctor. Seeing that you have thought to bring them home and care for their Alzheimer's condition by yourself, you are going to have your hand hands full now. The very least you can do is know what to be prepared for.

You need to have an idea of the amount of attention that your loved one or your friend needs when they are being treated for Alzheimer's. That will help map out how you will be caring for them. It will inform you on what you need to get and what you need to let go of. It is the only way you may be successful at caring for them from home with you.

If necessary, you do need to have access to information regarding the care of Alzheimer's patients, especially if your friend or loved one suffers from it and stays in your home. In the case of an emergency, that is what you may fall back on so that you don't mess things up for you and for them.

Alzheimer's disease is more than a disease, it has become a way of life for the person suffering it, and the person caring for them. You become inexorably involved if the sufferer is going to be living with you, and now you have to be their caregiver. That means that you are the one answerable for all that happens to the patient. It is a life or responsibility, and I hope you are happy being that way; because you need to be.

If you have any construction and aesthetic elements in your home, you might not want to be having someone suffering from Alzheimer's around as well. Well, you could make an exception if the designs will cater to the unique needs of your patient-friend. It is a bit tough, but you can handle it. I know I do.
