End Stage Alzheimer's
Because Alzheimer's and other dementias progress slowly, families are often able to make advance arrangements for its end-stage, which requires round-the-clock care. Connecting with hospice services brings both practical and emotional help. Even in the earlier stages, it's a good idea to know about available services, since grief preceding death is a very real issue with Alzheimer's.
Each stage of Alzheimer's brings its own characteristic symptoms. Learn the symptoms and behaviors of each stage, and how to handle them.
