8 Tips for Daily Life with Alzheimer's

Start with a Daily Routine

Creating a daily routine has been shown to assist in the progression of Alzheimer's disease. Continuous efforts on the patients part are important, meaning that caregivers should keep up with activities that are manageable and assist in engaging the mind over a period of time. Writing, playing games, art, music, and other mentally stimulating activities could prove very beneficial. Never push activities that seem frustrating. Making changes slowly is important, something that is oftentimes not thought about. Starting a routine that could make things easier is suggested by many health professionals. Scheduling too much can be mentally and physically draining. A schedule could help in keeping track of meals and limit mistakes that might be made earlier in the diagnosis.
