Part of getting higher in age is understanding that the risk for mental and physical issues will grow higher, too. One of the leading mental diseases seen in senior patients today is dementia, a brain disorder that can cause progressive cognitive problems in its hosts such as loss of memory and concentration.
At A-1 Home Care, our certified caregivers offer lasting dementia care services to our struggling seniors because we know how tough it is to have to go through such a scary time alone. In fact, even if dementia patients have significant care provided to them already by their loved ones, we’ll gladly help lighten the burden on them and their family by offering aid in any way that’s needed.
Dementia is not any one condition, but an umbrella term that oversees several specific mental diseases. In fact, did you know that there are 10 total mental diseases that are classified as being of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease?
Though each mental condition has distinct characteristics from one another, they share enough crucial similarities regarding cognition and overall mental function to be grouped together as precise types of dementia.
At A-1 Home Care, our expert dementia caregivers provide services to patients that include help with housekeeping duties, meal preparation, running errands, yard work and gardening, transportation to and from doctor appointments and other engagements, and even bathing/grooming care.
