Around 5.5 million Americans over the age of 65 are affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Dementia is an umbrella term that describes degenerative cognitive diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, that affect memory and cognitive ability over time. The symptoms may start out mild in those affected, as they may forget a conversation they had earlier that day, but they become much more severe. Soon those affected will forget familiar faces and eventually lose the ability for basic self-care. Those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia need consistent care to live safely, and it is best for them to receive care at home in a familiar environment.
