Senior Homecare by Angels Explains Alzheimer’s Home Care for Seniors in Milton, Halton Hills, Georgetown, Mississauga, and Nearby Cities
If you are facing an Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis, you probably have questions about Alzheimer’s home care and what the future will bring. Living with Alzheimer’s can be a challenge for the entire family. According to MayoClinic.org, “Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia—a continuous decline in thinking, behavioral and social skills that affects a person's ability to function independently.” Senior Homecare by Angels Milton can help by providing a wide range of services and being by your side as the disease progresses.
What Is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia, a set of degenerative cognitive symptoms that can cause problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and become worse over time. Severe or advanced Alzheimer’s interferes with living.
How Is Alzheimer’s Different from Normal Aging?
Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging. While cognitive abilities may change or slow throughout the aging process, Alzheimer’s can make it hard to function daily and will interfere with daily living.
What Are the Common Symptoms of Alzheimer's?
A common early symptom of Alzheimer’s is difficulty remembering new information or adjusting to changes in daily life. This is because Alzheimer’s disease begins in the part of the brain that is dedicated to learning and processing new information. As the disease worsens, symptoms can include:
- Confusion about time and life events
- Feeling lost or confused
- Mood swings
- Changes in behavior and personality
- Difficulty speaking, walking, or swallowing
How Does Alzheimer’s Disease Develop?
Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease, meaning that it will worsen over time. In the early stages, memory loss may be minor, or not a primary symptom. In later stages, memory loss is significant and impacts one’s ability to concentrate, complete tasks, recognize others, and track life events.
