Caregivers therefore need to know and understand how to deal with critical situations. Here are some tips for caregivers to know how to care for someone with Alzheimer.

For example, if you ask them emotional questions like: Where would you like to go for a walk today? This problem will be difficult for them to deal with. It is recommended to change the question to Let’s go for a walk in the park today, okay? This is relatively simple, they just need to answer yes or no.
