Providing Healthcare using the Latest Best Practices

Dementia / Alzheimers Attendant Care

DementiaIt care be terrifying and stressful to imagine a loved one losing one of the things most important to them, their memories. As scary as Dementia is, it’s a possibility that caregivers should consider. It is estimated that 25 percent of caregivers for adults over the age of 50 are providing care for an individual suffering from a cognitive impairment or dementia. This statistic is alarming, but it encourages caregivers to look for early signs of illness and help give their loved the best chance of a high quality of life.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of Dementia. It presents itself is roughly 2 in 3 cases of Dementia. It’s direct cause is still unknown. The disease typically presents itself in the memory and reasoning regions of the brain, it eventually moves towards the cerebral cortex (the area of the brain that controls thinking).

Dementia may also be caused due to another health aliment such as a stroke, liver disease, diabetes, or immune compromising diseases.
