Non-Medical Senior Care
Alzheimer’s is a brain disease that causes a slow decline in memory, thinking, and reasoning skills. Some of the symptoms may include memory loss that disrupts daily life, challenges in planning or solving common problems, difficulty in completing familiar tasks, confusion with time or place, forgetting the right word or name of a person, misplacing things, impaired judgment, withdrawal from social events, and a change in mood or personality.
While there’s currently no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, there is care and caring. The right nurturing care approach can help your loved one continue a high quality of life, even in the face of memory loss. Remaining in the familiar surroundings of their home can help keep seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia feeling loved and safe.
