Alzheimer’s Disease vs. Dementia what are the Differences?
Dementia is a general term used to describe different types of brain damage. Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, strokes, head injuries, multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, etc., are common causes of dementia.
Dementia Symptoms vary depending upon which part of the brain has been damaged. In Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss is common, confusion, disorientation, and inability to perform everyday tasks. Other symptoms associated with dementia include depression, anxiety, aggression, hallucinations, delusions, personality changes, sleep disturbances, impaired judgment, poor coordination, difficulty swallowing, incontinence, and weight loss.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia. There are three forms of Alzheimer’s disease: early-onset (before 65 years old) and middle stages (on 65 years old) while late-stage Alzheimer’s occurs after age 65.
Alzheimer’s disease causes a progressive decline in memory and thinking skills in both cases. A person with memory loss often displays personality changes, including apathy, lack of interest in day activities, communication difficulties, emotional instability, agitation, and restlessness.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care for your Elderly Loved Ones.
You can’t ignore that your elderly parents, grandparents, siblings, and other relatives are getting older. They may no longer be able to live alone, may need assistance with daily activities, and may require more than just routine medical care. It’s time to think about where they’ll go if you don’t take action now.
The first step toward planning for the future is determining whether your family members are eligible for nursing homes that provide long-term care. This determination depends on several factors, including their health status, income level, assets, and living arrangements.
The next step in preparing for the future is to consider the options available to meet your family member’s needs in respite care, in-home care center, personal care, and other home care services. You’ll also want to discuss these options with your family member’s doctor, nurse practitioner, social worker, financial planner, attorney, accountant, clergyperson, and others who have experience caring for aging adults.
Our Alzheimer’s and Dementia, and other services will help you plan for the future. We offer comprehensive senior care services designed to provide peace of mind for families dealing with Alzheimer’s and related dementias.
