Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
Forgetfulness is something all try to hide and blame on old age. As we begin to age, certain changes occur that we tend to brush off. What if these changes are coupled with other symptoms such as confusion, difficulty completing familiar tasks, difficulty holding a conversation, or changes in personality? There are many factors and symptoms that could just be old age, but many of them, especially together, could be the start of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia affect the mind, stealing away dreams, memories, and the abilities to plan, deliberate, reflect, and decide. The process is slow but inexorable. Your loved one will soon need help at home. Every dementia sufferer is at great risk for falls and for wandering off. Homes can become cluttered and dirty as cleaning is forgotten. As these diseases progress, more and more daily tasks will be harder to complete or they will be completely forgotten about.
Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease is particularly stressful – not just on you, but on your family and your work as well. Your loved one may not understand why you are trying to help them as they aren’t realizing they are losing their independence. Harbor Care Associates understands these diseases and their progression.
