Pag-aalaga sa Bahay: Gabay para sa Community Resources (Caregiving at Home: A Guide to Community Resources)

Ang diagnosis ng dementia o sakit na nagdudulot ng disability ay simula ng isang bagong chapter sa iyong buhay at sa buhay ng pamilya mo. Kailangang magkaroon ng mahahalagang desisyon ukol sa pag-aalaga, at kasama nito ay ang uncertainty o kawalan ng katiyakan at anxiety o pagkabalisa. Ilan sa mga desisyong ito ay dapat isagawa agad-agad. Ang iba naman ay darating sa mga susunod na panahon.

暂时休息:您需要在提供看护之余休息一下 (Respite Tips: Taking a Break From Giving Care to Someone in Need)

怎么才能有休息时间

  • 请家人或朋友抽时间来帮忙
  • 雇佣专业(付费)居家护工
  • 求助于成人日间看护中心
  • 将被看护者暂时送去安养院
  • 退伍军人的看护者:登记在册的退伍军人每年可享受最多 30 天的暂托护理,具体天数由退伍军人的治疗团队决定。您可以与针对退伍军人的患者联盟护理团队 (Veteran's Patient Aligned Care Team,PACT) 的社工、病例管理人员或看护者支持协调员 (Caregiver Support Coordinator,CSC) 交流,以了解在您所在的地区,可通过哪些方式获得帮助,从而让您有更多的休息时间。

 

没有休息连续不断的看护,会让看护者感到倦怠

  • 倦怠的症状包括:疲惫、沮丧、不耐烦以及难以应付日常的看护任务。
  • 要照顾好自己,就一定要在感到倦怠之前进行休息。

 

雇用居家护理 (Hiring In-Home Help)

家人、朋友以及专业人员可能经常会建议您找别人分担您的家务和看护任务,这些建议可能也会让您心动。但是,找别人上门“分担”意味着什么呢?从哪里找这样的人?您能负担得起相关的费用吗?如果您的亲人不希望家里有“陌生人”,应该怎么办?本资料书将指导您完成家庭护工的雇佣。

* 注意:FCA 将无偿提供看护的家人、伙伴、朋友和家庭成员等称为看护者。这里需要说明的是,本资料书中的护工是指有偿雇佣的护理人员。本资料书中的家庭护理工、家庭护理人员、护理工和佣人等指的也是有偿雇佣的护理人员。

 

我需要护工的帮助吗?

远距离看护、兼顾全职工作以及全天候看护和/或护理会对看护者造成伤害。如果您有亲人需要个人护理而且不能被单独留在家中,您就必须时刻关注他/她的情况并且需要昼夜“值班”。长时间的护理和陪伴可能会让您几乎没有时间留给自己。如果您正在护理的亲人需要您的帮助才能上下床或者坐到轮椅或椅子上,那您的背部很有可能会受伤。如果您的亲人患有痴呆症,您可能还需要应对这类患者的异常行为、精神恍惚或者可能造成伤害/引发危险的行为(例如忘记关闭燃气开关)。如果您没有时间购物、办理银行业务、就医,那您可能会因为压力过大而患上某些疾病。您是否很难完成或者根本无法完成日常的家务和烹饪?

Caregiving at Home: A Guide to Community Resources

[This new fact sheet replaces Helping Families Make Everyday Care Choices and Community Care Options, 8/11/16]


The diagnosis of a dementing illness or disabling health condition marks a new stage in your life and your family’s life. Important decisions about care arise, along with uncertainty and anxiety. Some choices might need to be made right away. Others lie ahead.


Sculpting: An Expression of My Experience with Alzheimer’s

Art has fascinated me since childhood, but it was only later in adulthood that art became important as a personal form of expression. I discovered I could sculpt about the same time we discovered my husband, Don, had Alzheimer’s. Sculpting then, for me, became both an escape from his illness and a connection to him. Art, always our strong common bond, became, even in his illness, a welcoming doorway for us both into a wider world of art. It became a way to experience some moments of joy even as we plummeted, tethered together, into the black vortex of his disease.
