My aunt is 80 years old and has Alzheimer's dimentia. The disease is getting worse. She can still get around but she's starting to fall, because she's getting more unsteady on her feet. I can't keep her from getting up at random times during the night. I'm looking into what Medicare will help cover and also in home help on the two days a week that I work.
If anyone who has been through the process, it would be helpful to get as much information as possible to keep my aunt safe and at home as long as possible. I live in Michigan and I'm her full legal guardian. Conservators handle her finances. I live in her home with her. I've been with her since 2008. She started showing signs of Alzheimer's in 2011 and was diagnosed by her dr in 2012 with Alzheimer's dimentia.
