Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care

content imageWhat exactly is Alzheimer’s disease? Is it different from dementia, or are they related? Merrriam Webster’s dictionary affectively provides the following definition of Alzheimer’s disease, which sheds light on its relation to dementia:

“Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative brain disease of unknown cause that is the most common form of dementia, that usually starts in late middle age or in old age, that results in progressive memory loss, impaired thinking, disorientation, and changes in personality and mood, and that is marked histologically by the degeneration of brain neurons especially in the cerebral cortex and by the presence of neurofibrillary tangles and plaques containing beta-amyloid.”

Considering the impact of impaired thinking, loss of memory, and disorientation encountered by dementia and Alzheimer’s patients, personal, consistent care becomes of vital importance. Many clients with loved ones who are dementia or Alzheimer’s patients tend to prefer live-in care or full time services to respond to the immense care giving needs.
