Alzheimer’s: When the Most Loving Thing You Can Do May Feel Like the Most Difficult Decision

Posted on: June 12, 2017

There comes a point when reasoning with an aging parent becomes incredibly tough. If your loved one has Alzheimer’s disease, mild cognitive impairment, or other forms of memory loss, the gradual progression of these conditions requires increasing amounts of supervision and caretaking as time passes. In almost all cases, the patient in question will be unaware of how much their needs are affecting you as their adult child. Rationalizing with someone who isn’t completely mentally present can be painful.

Our Happy Clients
  • My grandmother lives at the Ventura Townehouse and I feel confident that she is in good hands. They get her to her appointments and provide any aftercare that she may need. Everyone there is friendly and like family. I feel like I’m at home when I go there to visit her and eat with her in the dining room.

  • Recently, I visited my Mom from Chicago. Each day I offered to take us out and about in Ventura. We found ourselves having such an enjoyable time at the Townehouse we didn’t leave. The dining room was so lovey to enjoy with her friends. Patios welcoming and the activities kept us busy. We laughed and had fun all day! Thank you everyone for making me feel at home and making my visit special. It’s always hard to leave my mom. But not as hard when I know she is so happy! Until my next visit!
