What is Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Care?
In general, dementia is a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks, serious enough to interfere with a person’s daily quality of life. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Our services help people with these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths, while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to perform.
According to the Alzheimer's Association, "1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another dementia. It kills more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined," making it a disease that should be treated right away if early-stage symptoms are noticed in one of your family members.
As of 2019, an estimated 5.8 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's dementia.
There's no one proven factor of what causes Alzheimer's disease in people. However, the National Institute on Aging states that late-onset Alzheimer's can arise from a series of brain changes over the span of decades which can probably include a combination of genetic factors, environmental factors, and lifestyle factors.
Dementia & Alzheimer's Disease Symptoms
Since dementia can vary person-by-person, it can be difficult identifying the symptoms in your loved one.
However, the Alzheimer's Association explains that in order for dementia to be diagnosed, at least two of the following core mental functions must be significantly impaired:
- Communication and language
- Ability to focus and pay attention
- Reasoning and judgment
- Visual perception
If you notice any of these communication difficulties or behavior problems, it's important for your loved one to see a dementia care provider right away. It's better to catch it early than in its late-stages or when your loved one starts showing aggressive behavior.
How Comfort Keepers Can Help Dementia Patients
When finding out that your loved one has been diagnosed with dementia, you may think that your only care option is to admit them into a nursing home - but that isn't true.
Comfort Keepers offers in-home care services that can help ensure your loved one's well-being by providing safety around the house, and even develop a daily routine that they will look forward to.
Our specially trained dementia-care Comfort Keepers® will:
- Help maintain a safe environment for the client.
- Engage the client in activities that can stimulate the senses, such as music.
- Provide meals and bathing assistance.
- Support the client and family through the changing behaviors often seen with dementia.
We customize our in-home care to meet each client’s special needs - including cognitive impairment, taking into consideration his or her health and ability. Depending on the client’s needs, Comfort Keepers can provide care for just a few hours a week or provide full-time, in-home care. Through our 24-hour senior care service, a team of Comfort Keepers coordinates caregiving responsibilities in shifts. This offers clients and their families’ full-time peace of mind.
