Dementia Needs Change as Mental Abilities Decline
Mental decline starts slowly, but the decline is steady. Old age is the most common cause of decline, and memory loss is often the first symptom that people experience. The most common symptoms are:
- Impaired language skills
- Impaired vision and perception
- Difficulty paying attention or focusing
- Misplacing items
Our caregivers are trained to help your loved one deal with the stress of their mental decline. Caregivers have all been trained to meet the specific dementia care needs of dementia patients. We'll provide the care your loved one needs while allowing them to retain the skills that they still have available.
Through encouragement and the right dementia care plan, we’ll make sure that we offer assistance when it’s needed most and still allow for the independence that keeps a person’s dignity in place.
If caregivers notice the early signs of dementia, we’ll recommend an early screening to help detect Alzheimer’s or dementia. Early detection can help delay some of the symptoms so that your loved one can have an improved quality of life.
Long-term planning and medication may also be recommended to help keep a person’s mental abilities sharp and from immediate decline. Contact us online or give us a call today at (831) 886-0475 to discuss how our dementia care services can help your loved one with dementia.
