During the middle stages of Alzheimer's, damage to the brain can make it difficult to express thoughts and perform routine tasks. You may notice the person with Alzheimer's jumbling words, having trouble dressing, getting frustrated or angry, or acting in unexpected ways, such as refusing to bathe.

While these changes are difficult for everyone involved, resources are available to help both caregiver and the person with dementia as the disease progresses. There will be challenging days, but there also will be good days. As the caregiver's relationship with the person with dementia changes, it will find new ways to connect and deepen their bond.

Being a caregiver for someone in the middle stages of Alzheimer's requires flexibility and patience. As the abilities of the person with Alzheimer's change and functioning independently becomes more difficult, caregivers from Caring Spring Senior Care takes greater responsibility.
