There are approximately 5 million seniors in the U.S. who are affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.  Dementia in all its forms is a degenerative cognitive condition in which general cognitive abilities, including memory, slowly decline.  The symptoms start out mild, such as issues with short-term memory, but over time, long-term memory becomes affected and there is a severe decline in cognitive abilities.  Those affected by dementia require consistent care to live safely and they benefit most from receiving care in a familiar environment such as their home.

Alzheimer’s Disease vs Dementia

The terms “Alzheimer’s disease” and “dementia” are often used interchangeably, but it’s crucial to distinguish between the two.  Dementia is a broad term for various conditions that impact cognitive abilities and memory, while Alzheimer’s disease is a specific type of dementia.  It’s worth noting that Alzheimer’s is the most prevalent form of dementia, accounting for 60 to 80 percent of all cases and ranking among the leading causes of death in the U.S.  At the onset, all forms of dementia have mild symptoms that progressively worsen over time, affecting long-term memory, cognitive abilities, and overall awareness.

It is easy to miss the initial symptoms of dementia because they resemble typical aging, but it is important to recognize the symptoms in your loved ones so they can receive care as soon as possible.  You should look out for the following early signs of dementia:

  • Problems with short-term memory
  • Difficulty holding conversations
  • Mood swings and irrational behavior
  • Impaired reasoning
  • Visual and spatial misjudgments

Dementia and Alzheimer’s Home Care

Our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care can provide effective memory care for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.  We can help dementia patients with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as eating, bathing, dressing, and transferring, and we will react to common behaviors with positive reinforcement.  Having our caregivers present will provide your loved ones with a familiar and trustworthy face, helping to minimize mood swings and agitation.

Home Care by Assisting Hands Home Care

We begin our memory care services by meeting with you and your loved ones to determine their care needs as well as their current condition.  We will then create a personalized care plan that can be adjusted as their condition progresses.  Our memory care includes personal care and assistance, medication reminders, transportation, and help with household tasks.

Our caregivers can also do the following to react to common behaviors of dementia patients and engage them in stimulating activities:

  • Accompany your loved ones when they start to wander to prevent them from falling or leaving the home
  • Respond to agitation and mood swings with positive reinforcement
  • Do craft projects and play simple games
  • Stimulate past memories by looking through family photo albums
  • Watch their favorite movies and TV shows, listen to music, and read books
  • Take them on fun, safe outings
