Hi all,
My grandmother is an Alzheimer's patient and she is showing odd behaviour at times. I really don’t know how to handle her, sometimes she is showing intense anger and once she had tried to attempt suicide. My friends advised me to seek the help of any professional caregivers for help. So I had contacted a company for a caregiver. They ensured 100% nursing care.but I'm not sure that she will co-operate with a stranger. What should I do? Any advice should be appreciable.

Thank you for the question. Since we are not in a position to endorse other companies we ask that links not be posted. Generally speaking your question is a common problem. It is difficult for elderly to cooperate with strangers. My mother in law was really uncomfortable with most of the staff in the nursing home she was in. Fortunately we had a close friend who worked there and stopped in to see her often and smooth things over. Since you fear that she will not respond well to a caregiver stranger I would make sure that you are permitted a trial period so that if it does not work out you can make other arrangements. One of the most important things is to keep your loved one as comfortable as possible. Be sure to offer a lot of gentle and positive reinforcement that a caregiver is there for her benefit and to help all of you.
