3 EVERY 67 SECONDS someone in the United States develops Alzheimer s or a related dementia. Just about everyone I meet knows someone who s been affected. With more than 5 million people in our country living with the disease, that s not really surprising. Alzheimer s crosses all boundaries age, race, culture, socioeconomic status, and gender; and although awareness and acceptance are increasing, we still have a long way to go in finding the cause, a treatment, or a cure. Alzheimer s is the plague of our generation and women are at its epicenter. Not only are women more likely to be diagnosed, they are more likely to be a primary caregiver. Women over the age of 60 are also more likely to develop Alzheimer s than they are to develop Breast Cancer! If you ve picked up this Resource Guide it s probably because you or someone important in your life is now living with the disease. Chances are you re feeling overwhelmed and a little concerned about doing the right thing. Please know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. We are here to help in any way we can, and we hope you won t hesitate to give us a call, day or night, through our 24/7 Helpline ( ). The information included in this Guide can help you navigate the complex service delivery world that exists for those with Alzheimer s and their families take an extra minute to look on the next page to see the numerous programs and services we offer throughout Los Angeles County. We have Service Centers in the Mid- Wilshire, Canoga Park, and East Los Angeles communities.

5 Your memory often changes as you grow older. But memory loss that disrupts daily life is not a typical part of aging. It may be a symptom of dementia. Dementia is a slow decline in memory, thinking, and reasoning skills. The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer s (AHLZ-high-merz) disease, a fatal disorder that results in the loss of brain cells and function. This list can help you recognize the warning signs of Alzheimer s: Memory changes that disrupt daily life Challenges in planning or solving problems Difficulty completing familiar tasks Confusion with time or place Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships New problems with words in speaking or writing Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps Decreased or poor judgment Withdrawal from work or social activities Changes in mood and personality Signs of Alzheimer s/dementia Poor judgment and decision making Inability to manage a budget Losing track of the date or the season Difficulty having a conversation Misplacing things and being unable to retrace steps to find them Typical Age-Related Changes Making a bad decision once in a while Missing a monthly payment Forgetting which day it is and remembering later Sometimes forgetting a word Losing things from time to time

8 ADULT DAY SERVICES Adult Day Services are programs designed to provide stimulation in a safe environment during the day for adults with physical and mental functional impairment, including individuals with Alzheimer s disease and related disorders. These programs offer an opportunity for social interaction, promote health maintenance, foster independence, provide much-needed respite for family caregivers, or offer family members a safe place for their loved one to stay while they work. There are three basic models of Adult Day Services: Adult Day Programs (ADP) Adult Day Programs provide non-medical care to persons who require personal care services, protective care, or assistance in activities of daily living. These social day centers are recreational in nature and accept persons with dementia, but they may or may not accept someone who has problems with wandering, incontinence, or aggressive behaviors. Services are on a private pay basis (a sliding fee schedule may be available). These centers are licensed by the Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. Community Based Adult Services Program (CBAS) Formerly known as Adult Day Health Care, these centers specialize in providing medical, rehabilitative, and social services for adults who are physically or mentally impaired. Social activities are also available. ADHC services are provided by nurses, therapists (physical, speech, and occupational), as well as social workers and other medical personnel. Costs of services are covered by Medi-Cal or private pay. These centers are licensed by the Department of Health Care Services. Alzheimer s Day Care Resource Centers (ADCRC) Originally designated by the California Department of Aging to provide specialized services and support to persons with moderate to severe Alzheimer s disease or related dementias, many of these centers continue to focus on dementia care services despite no longer receiving state funds. The centers are usually equipped to handle people who may wander, are incontinent, and demonstrate challenging behaviors related to dementia. 8 ADULT DAY SERVICES

9 Steps to Selecting Adult Day Services Find Adult Day Services Near You Alzheimer s Association Helpline (800) Visit our website: Call for information Contact several adult day centers and ask for a brochure, a monthly activity calendar, menu, fee schedule, and enrollment information.

10 ASSISTED LIVING FACILITIES When to consider care outside the home One of the most difficult experiences for family caregivers of a person with Alzheimer s disease or a related disorder is deciding when to consider placement outside the home. Caregivers should ask themselves the following questions to evaluate their situation: 1. Is the person with memory loss becoming unsafe in their home? 2. Is constant care required beyond my physical capability? 3. Am I becoming impatient or irritable toward the person for whom I am caring? 4. Would structured activities and increased social interaction benefit the person I care for? 5. Am I neglecting my family, my job, or myself in order to provide care? 6. Would placement outside the home result in more enjoyable visits and outings with the person I care for? Your answers to those questions can help you determine if placement outside the home is the best decision. Questions to ask when visiting care facilities ENVIRONMENT: 1. License: Ask to see the facility s valid California State License, issued by the State of California, Department of Social Services Community Care Licensing Division 2. Atmosphere: When you walk in do you feel the nurturing, loving, and supportive environment your loved one needs and deserves? 3. Living space: Is there indoor and outdoor space? Are there safe walking paths or secured access to fresh air and outdoor activities? 4. Visiting hours: Does the visitation policy meet your needs? Visit at different times to see the interaction of staff with residents and visit unannounced. 5. Structure: Is the facility designed and constructed with the abilities, comfort, and freedom of the resident in mind? 10 ASSISTED LIVING FACILITIES

11 PEOPLE: 1. Staff: Has the staff been screened and properly trained? Residents with memory loss present unique challenges to staff, requiring ongoing training. 2. Administrator: Does the Administrator seem knowledgeable about dementia and the special care required? 3. Physical contact: Is there positive physical contact between staff and residents a warm touch, an arm around the shoulders? 4. Humor: Do staff and residents interact joyfully and set a tone of lightheartedness? 5. Verbal cues: How do staff redirect a resident? Do they command or encourage? RESIDENTS: 1. Personal care: Is care (bathing, toileting, etc.) done with respect and dignity for the resident? 2. Resident behavior: Are some residents sitting quietly or sleeping? Are some residents moving around freely? These are normal behaviors and should be allowed in a safe environment. 3. Personal belongings: Are residents allowed to bring in furniture, bedding, and photos that are familiar to them? This helps them to feel at home and gives them a sense of belonging and not being lost. 4. Level of function: Ask what happens when the person needs a higher level of care. Can the facility accommodate residents with a wide range of abilities? ACTIVITIES: 1. Home life: Can the residents participate in meaningful activities such as setting the table, washing dishes, folding the laundry, etc.? 2. Programming: What does the structured activity program look like? Are projects interesting and success-oriented? Are activities planned with the dementia resident in mind?

13 AUTOPSY An autopsy is an examination of a person s body after death. A brain autopsy may provide information researchers can use to better understand the disease. It is important to make arrangements for an autopsy in advance in order to prepare the necessary documentation. Some programs are grant funded and require advance enrollment. The best way to ensure that autopsy will occur is to enroll in a research study while the person with Alzheimer s or a related dementia is still alive (see Research & Clinical Trials section). Most research centers will pay for the autopsy in order to advance the science. The decision to have an autopsy performed is a personal agreement among family members and should be arranged prior to death.

14 CARE MANAGEMENT Care management helps older adults and their families determine their needs and find the best available resources to meet those needs. A care manager ensures that the person with dementia is receiving the proper care by conducting a needs assessment of the person with dementia and arranging for the appropriate services. There are different types of care management services available, including government and private services. Please be sure to ask about the fees for care management services. Alzheimer s Association Care Consultation The staff at the Alzheimer s Association is dedicated to helping people navigate through the difficult decisions people with Alzheimer s and their families face at every stage of the disease. We provide care consultation services by telephone, or in person. These include: assessment of needs, help with planning and problem solving, and caregiver training.
