Comfort Keepers Alzheimer’s and Dementia Informational Sources

Alzheimer’s and dementia present a number of challenges for both aging seniors and their families. Caregivers for Alzheimer’s and dementia afflicted seniors undergo extensive training in the proper care and treatment for seniors in every stage of their disease. Well-trained caregivers assist seniors with their condition and attend to them with dignity and grace, helping seniors navigate the common tasks of daily life with ease and consistency.

Below is a collection of articles and resources created by Comfort Keepers to provide information about Alzheimer’s and Dementia-related topics.

Our service is a great option for seniors who wish to live at home but need assistance with basic tasks; however, our Comfort Keepers are not medical professionals, and they cannot administer medication or medical advice.

Uncovering Pain in Seniors with Dementia

Many studies indicate that although dementia patients experience severe or chronic pain, they regularly receive fewer analgesics than healthy senior adults. This can primarily be attributed to the fact that while a healthy senior can verbalize pain and discomfort, dementia patients, especially those in the late stages, cannot. Pain reporting is dependent on memory and verbal capacity; dementia patients generally have difficulty with both and cannot report when they are experiencing pain.
