Alzheimer's Counseling

Alzheimer's Counseling
If you or a loved one is suffering from signs of dementia, it can be a challenging emotional journey. It is difficult to suddenly find your life turned upside down because of your inability to perform daily tasks that used to be so simple. You may be uncertain about what the future holds and unclear about what steps you need to take. Fortunately, help is just around the corner. Call the office of Rick McCarthy MFT for dementia and Alzheimer’s counseling in Long Beach.

No one means to develop dementia or Alzheimer’s. Some people are more genetically susceptible to it, and environmental factors can also increase the probability of the disease. Some of the best ways to avoid dementia are lifestyle changes: eating well, exercising, and in particular, maintaining an active life with plenty of social ties. Still, despite our best efforts, dementia sometimes happens. It can put strain on familial relationships, as older relatives require an increasing amount of daily care.

The afflicted person may experience feelings of frustration, depression, or helplessness. Counseling can be a great way to get these issues out in the open and move toward accepting the changes that come with dementia or Alzheimer’s.

Rick McCarthy MFT has years of experience working with Alzheimer’s patients and their loved ones. He exhibits compassion, and he understands how to implement coping strategies that work. Part of his therapy sessions will revolve around providing emotional support and helping everyone come to grips with the reality of dementia. It is also important to work through logistical issues, helping the afflicted person recognize when they need care and what tasks they need help with, and finding people to give them that help. Rick McCarthy will do his professional best to help everyone feel at ease and communicate well.

You are not alone, and your life is not over simply because of the onset of dementia or Alzheimer’s. You can cope, and individual and family counseling sessions will go a long way towards helping you to do just that. Give Rick a call to get started.
