Answer by Connie b. Dellobuono:

It is like taking care of a toddler, you have to be watching the person every moment. At times they wake up wet, you have to change them constantly and even shower them. A 24/7 care is needed. In the bay area, you can hire a caregiver to tag team with you during the time that you are not available to take care of your mom/dad so you will be burned out. 408-854-1883 is the bay area caregivers with Motherhealth for 4-hr or 24/7 care. There are also care homes in the bay area (call for free referral), 6 clients with AD with 3 caregivers who can prepare their meals and care for them 24/7.
