More than 5 million senior citizens in the U.S. are affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Conditions that fall under the “dementia” label are degenerative diseases that cause a decline in cognitive ability and memory. The symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia start mild but over time, memory lapses will turn into long-term memory loss and cognitive decline will make self-care impossible. It is important for seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia to receive consistent care in an environment that is comfortable and familiar to them.

What is Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia?
People tend to use the terms “Alzheimer’s disease” and “dementia” interchangeably, but they do not have the same meaning. Dementia is an umbrella term for a number of conditions that cause a decline in cognitive ability and memory and Alzheimer’s disease is a specific form of dementia. Alzheimer’s disease specifically accounts for 60 to 80 percent of all dementia cases and is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. People suffering from all forms of dementia experience gradual cognitive decline and memory loss that starts with short-term memory lapses and eventually affects long-term memory.
Identifying Alzheimer’s Symptoms
The early symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia can be difficult to identify because they could be dismissed as normal signs of aging. However, your loved ones are likely in the early stages of dementia if the following symptoms become consistent:
- Lapses in memory
- Impaired reasoning
- Difficulty holding a conversation
- Visual and spatial misjudgments
- Irrational behavior and mood swings
