Alzheimer’s At Home Health Care
How Does Alzheimer’s Disease Affect Elderly Health Care?
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia: It is a group of disorders characterized mostly by memory loss. More than half of all dementia cases are classified as Alzheimer’s disease. While some memory loss is a normal part of the aging process, Alzheimer’s disease is not normal and it gets progressively worse over time. In addition to memory loss, Alzheimer’s causes a number of other cognitive issues. At home health care providers have seen that symptoms include:
- Short-term memory loss
- Suspicion or paranoia about other people (including family)
- Difficulty with communication or speaking
- Behavioral or mood changes
Because the disease does get worse over time, caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s will get increasingly more difficult. That is why we provide at home health care assistance from caregivers that can care for your elderly loved one with Alzheimer's. Our specialized elderly health care services are designed to help take some of the responsibility and stress off of your shoulders.
