What is Dementia?
Dementia is not a single disorder, but a group of disorders that have similar symptoms. Dementia is characterized by a steady decline in one’s mental abilities—typically related to old age. Memory loss is the most common sign of dementia, but there are other indications or warning signs. Some of the more common indicators of dementia include:
- Impaired vision and perception
- Impaired communication or language skills
- An inability to focus or pay attention
- Misplacing items more frequently
Because dementia gets worse over time, someone with the disorder will need more and more assistance as it progresses. If your loved one is living with dementia, it can be emotionally draining to watch their decline on a daily basis. Our dementia care services can help take some of the responsibility and stress away from you.
What is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia—a group of disorders characterized mostly by memory loss. More than half of all dementia cases are classified as Alzheimer’s disease. While some memory loss is a normal part of the aging process, Alzheimer’s disease is not normal and gets progressively worse over time. In addition to memory loss, Alzheimer’s causes a number of other cognitive issues. Some other noticeable symptoms may include:
- Short-term memory loss
- Suspicion or paranoia about other people (including family)
- Difficulty with communication or speaking
- Behavioral or mood changes
Because the disease does get worse over time, caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s will get increasingly more difficult. We offer specialized Alzheimer’s home care services to help take away some of the stress and responsibility that you may be feeling.
