What is Alzheimer’s disease?
and how does it work?
Alzheimer’s disease is a physical disease that affects the brain. The nerve cells are disrupted by ‘plaques’ and ‘tangles’ that build up inside the brain. The communication between the nerve cells changes and messages don’t travel around as well as they should. Eventually the cells die.
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive condition and symptoms develop over several years which can include confusion, problems with speech, personality changes and difficulty making decisions.
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia Care
There is a misconception that is still widely believed around the outcomes for someone diagnosed with dementia. Some believe that there are limited options and the only choice is inevitably residential care.
However, as our understanding of the condition has increased, so has the evidence that quality care at home can have a real impact on stabilising and even slowing the progression of the most common dementia symptoms.
Familiarity and regular routines are key to reducing distress, so receiving consistent support from our specially trained Care Givers in the familiar home environment is ideal wherever possible.
A healthy diet, suitable exercise and cognitive stimulation have all been shown to have a positive impact on dementia symptoms and we work with our Clients to ensure they are getting the best possible care whilst also meeting their personal choices and needs.
What is dementia?
and how does it work?
Dementia is caused by different diseases that affect the brain and Alzheimer’s disease is the most common of these. Dementia is not a disease in its own right and is actually the name for a group of symptoms that commonly include problems with memory, thinking, problem solving, language and perception.
