Caring for Someone with Alzheimer's or Dementia
Contrary to popular belief, memory loss is not a natural part of aging. Occasionally forgetting a name or misplacing the car keys is normal. But significant memory problems that disrupt daily life, such as getting lost on the way home from a familiar grocery store or developing an inability to keep track of bills, may be early symptoms of dementia.
While dementia affects each person differently, everyone tends to follow a general pattern of decline defined by stages. Understanding the different symptoms and stages of Alzheimer’s can help you know what to expect as the disease progresses. It can also help you plan accordingly for the additional care your loved one will likely need along the way.
With years of experience caring for people living with dementia and supporting their family caregivers, Home Instead Care Professionals understand how difficult and emotional it can be. Our relationship-centered approach enables our Care Professionals to provide care that supports not only the family member with the dementia diagnosis, but the family caregivers providing them essential care and support.
