Dementia is not a disease but a syndrome or set of symptoms that affect memory and other mental cognitive tasks like reasoning. Alzheimer’s, on the other hand, is a type of dementia that mostly affects the part of the brain that controls memory, thinking, and language skills.
If you are currently caring for a loved one with any form of dementia, chances are that you have noticed your tasks are increasing by the day. This is because most types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s, are progressive, meaning your loved one will continue to need more of your support as the condition progresses.
Caring for a family member or any other loved one with any form of dementia is not easy, especially if you don’t have formal training. It is, therefore, important to know when to ask for help, not only for your own benefit but for the wellbeing of your loved one as well.
At ACIS Home Care, we have caregivers who have been specially trained in memory care and cognitive impairment. They will work with you, your loved one’s health care provider, and other family members to establish a safe and comfortable environment for your loved one while providing a wide range of specialized services that will allow your loved one to remain at home for as long as possible.
