Dementia is a common condition among senior citizens as an estimated 5 million are affected by various forms throughout the U.S. These conditions are progressive diseases that start slow and will get much worse over time. Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia will impair cognitive abilities including memory and make it practically impossible for those affected to live safely without some type of care.
Memory Home Care
Seniors affected by Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia feel more comfortable in familiar environments which is why they should receive care in their homes. Those who remain at home will generally experience less intense mood swings and agitation. It takes specialized care for those with these conditions to live safely at home which is why it is best for families to get help from trained Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers.
