Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, affects over 4 million of seniors in the U.S. It can be mainly characterized by memory loss, problems with speaking or writing, confusion with time and place, difficulty with problem solving, thinking and completing familiar tasks. Although Alzheimer’s disease is quite wide-spread among the elderly, it is not a natural part of aging and requires intense care in order to delay further development of this disease.
Despite the fact, that there is no known cure for Alzheimer’s disease, a caregiver can help a patient feel safer and less confused.
In early and middle stages of the disease, Alzheimer patients are encouraged to be cared for in their homes, surrounded by a familiar environment, which helps slow the progress of illness down. In nursing homes and other facilities, on the contrary, a person with such disease might suffer from extra negative emotions, which would aggravate the disease.
Leaving your loved one with Alzheimer’s disease at home attended by a Dynamic Home Health Care caregiver assures that he or she will be provided with all the necessary aid, will be assisted and accompanied in daily activities by a reliable and carrying person.
