Alzheimer’s disorder is a type of dementia that leads to the development of problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. Symptoms of Alzheimer’s develop gradually and get worse over time, eventually becoming so severe that it interferes with daily life. Contrary to what some may believe, this disease is not a normal part of the aging process. While there is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s there are treatments available that will help to manage and temporarily slow the worsening of symptoms to improve overall quality of life.

Helping a Loved One

Helping a loved one or family member get treatment for Alzheimer's disease

If you have a loved one who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, knowing what to expect and preparing for the challenge can help people with Alzheimer’s get the care they need. Many caregivers find their job to be difficult at times, but also rewarding. While every individual’s situation is unique, having good information can help you be ready for any difficulties when they arise. Some helpful tips to keep in mind may include:

  • Communicate as simply as possible
  • Understand the progression of the disease
  • Keep your own emotions in check
  • Have a general daily routine
  • Consider long-term care
  • Plan fun activities
  • Don’t blame yourself

Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia can seem overwhelming at times, but the more information and support you have, the better you can navigate the demanding road ahead and determine the long-term care options that are best suited to you and your loved one.

Why Consider Treatment

Why consider treatment for Alzheimer's disease at StoneCrest Center in Detroit, MI

Alzheimer’s is a brain disorder that occurs gradually over a long period of time. As the disease progresses, brain tissue deteriorates causing problems with memory and other mental abilities. Individuals with Alzheimer’s will eventually be unable to remember anything, may be unable to read or write, and may have trouble recognizing their surroundings. Additionally, over time an individual may lose their ability to make sensible decisions or forget complete routine tasks, such as bathing or brushing ones teeth. Changes in personality are also common throughout the progression of this disease and may include depression, anxiety, paranoia, stubbornness, or aggressiveness. If not properly managed symptoms may only get worse and harder to control.

If you or a loved one has just been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or are going through a crisis period, an inpatient program may be one of the most beneficial options. Just like other forms of dementia, a major part of the treatment process for patients with Alzheimer’s comes from the support given by healthcare workers who provide quality of life care, which becomes more important because needs increase with declining independence. Additionally, an inpatient program can provide effective management of any conditions occurring alongside Alzheimer’s, provide activities or programs of adult day care, and provide support groups as well as various types of therapy.

Types of Treatment

Types of Alzheimer's disease treatment offered at StoneCrest Center

At StoneCrest we use a multidisciplinary approach to treatment, which is implemented by a fully qualified staff who enhance each patients person-centered planning. Each patient case manager will serve as their advocate and help guide them through the treatment process while also establishing a therapeutic relationship as they work with the patient toward identified treatment goals. For our older patients, our Generations program is specifically designed to help patients deal with emotional problems or stressors they may be experiencing in life. Some treatment techniques we use in this program may include:

Medication management: Medication is often used in the treatment of Alzheimer’s to help reduce symptoms and improve quality of life. All patients are seen by a doctor on a regular basis and are seen by a psychiatrist on a daily basis.

Individual therapy: Individual therapy is a time where each patient meets one-on-one with a counselor to discuss any issues that may be of particular concern.

Group therapy: Group therapy is a large part of the treatment process at StoneCrest and multiple groups are held on a regular basis. Some of the common group topics include social skills, support systems, and daily living activities.

Family therapy: Family involvement is extremely important to the well-being of the patient, which is why our Generations program is partially geared towards educating the patient’s family to help them understand what their loved one is experiencing and how to cope with certain emotional difficulties in the future.

Continuing Care
