  • Staying Active

    It’s important to stay active when living with early Alzheimer’s Disease. Continuing to do all the things a person living with Alzheimer’s Disease enjoys, such as spending time with family, socialising with friends and keeping up with hobbies are all encouraged. Many people also take up new activities which they find very rewarding. Whether it’s going to an art class, learning to sing or taking up fishing, there’s something to suit everyone. People may often discover a creative side that they never knew they had before.

  • Importance of Communication

    When living with Alzheimer’s Disease maintaining everyday communication is really important for both the person living with Alzheimer’s Disease and the people around them. In the early stages forgetting words, misplacing things or having difficulty understanding instructions can be frustrating. However learning about the condition and what to expect can greatly improve communication.

  • Daily living with Alzheimer’s Disease

    In the early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease most people can continue to do all the things they have always done. Activities such as reading or playing a musical instrument are not always affected and can be continued. Many people find it useful to have daily routines or planned activities throughout the day. Simple daily routines can also provide an opportunity for both the person living with Alzheimer’s Disease and the people that care about them, to enjoy spending time together.

  • Caring for Carers

    Caring for someone living with Alzheimer’s Disease is a life-changing experience. In the early days you may have lots of questions or concerns and wish to understand more about the condition or what to expect. Many carers often put aside their own needs in order to care for the person they love. Everyone is different but it is common for carers to experience a range of emotions from sadness and frustration to hope. Some carers may also have other responsibilities such as a family or job which also require their time and energy. For all of these reasons it is essential that a carer makes the time to care for themselves too.
