Alzheimer’s Treatment

Alzheimer’s treatment

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss but other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. 

Symptoms of Alzheimer’s

The most common symptom of Alzheimer’s is difficult remembering newly learned information because Alzheimer’s changes begin in the part of the brain that is affecting the learning. As Alzheimer’s advances it leads to critical symptoms such as disorientation, mood and behaviour changes, deepening confusion about events, more serious memory loss, difficulty in walking and swallowing. 

Alzheimer’s Home Care Benefits:

Alzheimer’s Home care services can be made customised to meet patient needs, regardless of the stage they’re in. Having a respite care provider come into home helps ease stress on a loved one who prefers to age in place within their home.  Studies show that those with Alzheimer’s who view their environment in a positive way not only experiences less stress and anxiety but also have a greater sense of overall happiness.
