For individuals suffering from Alzheimer's disease, dementia, or other cognitive impairments, a home setting is the optimal care situation. The sense of familiarity, comfort, and security that comes from being in one's own home and bedroom surrounded with memorable keepsakes and family pictures is very beneficial. A dementia patient who is removed from familiar surroundings will likely be more disoriented and confused, possibly complicating the condition and its treatment.
However, there are significant challenges in caring for Alzheimer’s/dementia patients at home.
Patients: Some challenges that are common among Alzheimer's and dementia patients include: wandering, incontinence, repetitions, ‘sun downing’, agitation, depression, and the increased risk of falls or accidents.
Family caregivers: Often called the invisible second patients, family caregivers are subject to a high incidence of burden and psychological morbidity, as well as social isolation, physical ill-health, and financial hardship.
