Asking for Help

The balance between “too soon” and “too late” may be stimulation and resources.

Getting older isn’t easy for anyone, including the family members watching it happen. When we see our loved ones going through changes, it’s often difficult to accept. It’s also difficult to tell the difference between the normal symptoms of aging and something else being wrong.

Many of the early signs of Alzheimer’s and dementia too often get mistaken for normal things that come with age. Confusion, withdrawal, forgetfulness, and difficulty performing familiar tasks are signs that can easily go ignored, or worse: justified. When we excuse these things as “normal,” we miss out on the opportunity to help our loved ones when they need us most.

Rather than justifying or ignoring what they are going through, it is best to acknowledge the problems and reach out to find the solutions. Family Connect Memory Care in Torrance, CA hopes to be a part of your family’s solution.

We provide custom care to your loved one to satisfy their medical, personal, and emotional needs. We are a support system for the whole family, not just the individual. Most of all, we are here to make asking for help a bit easier.
