Dementia can be an extremely difficult diagnosis, both for the person affected and their family members. It is important to understand dementia and its various types so you can best provide care and support for your loved one. Dementia is a broad term used to describe a number of different disorders that involve cognitive decline. The two main types of dementia are Alzheimer’s Disease and vascular dementia.
It is perfectly normal to feel a bit less sharp as you age, but this cognitive decline can also be due to Alzheimer’s and dementia.
- A noticeable change in their demeanor, such as increased anxiety, irritability, or aggression
- A decline in personal hygiene
- Rapid weight loss due to forgetting to eat
- The development of new habits like excessive messiness or hoarding
- Incidences of wandering or getting lost
- Frequently forgetting to take medications
These symptoms indicate that your loved one may need full-time care to keep them healthy and safe. Memory care programs can provide seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia around-the-clock monitoring and care in secure environments. This high level of care can help ease your mind about your loved one’s well-being.
Does Your Loved One Need Memory Care?
Your loved one’s care team and doctor can help you understand the underlying cause of their dementia. This is important, as it will determine the most effective care plan for them. Many times, this will include extensive care plans that involve 24/7 care that can be difficult to deliver by yourself and at home.
When your family needs help providing the best care for your loved one with dementia, you can turn to Westminster Place. Our memory care programs provide seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia the support and services they need in a safe, home-like setting.
