“I have been diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer’s disease. Even though my children are trying to be helpful they are doing things for me that I can do for myself. How do I tell them this without hurting their feelings?"
“Should I have mom move in with me? She just doesn’t seem to be doing well on her own.”
“I live out of state. I have received calls from the hospital emergency room three times this month about my Dad who lives in the East Bay. I can’t fly out to see him until next month. Can you help?”
“My husband just doesn't seem well. He's acting confused and exhausted. When I ask how I can help, he says he has everything under control and doesn’t need anyone’s help. What should I do?”
We understand it can be isolating and frightening to receive a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or Alzheimer’s disease. We are here to help you process your feelings and concerns around your diagnosis so that you can continue to live the best life possible.
As a family member or caregiver of someone with Alzheimer’s disease, a chronic health condition or disability, you may need information, direction and support. It is easy to become overwhelmed and feel hopeless. We can assess your loved one’s needs, develop an effective plan to meet those needs and support you during the process. Having a compassionate professional by your side is the key to turning despair into productive steps forward.
