Alzheimer’s and dementia care

It’s common for people to use “Alzheimer’s disease” and “dementia” interchangeably, though these terms have different meanings. Dementia encompasses a variety of conditions that adversely affect memory and cognitive skills. Specifically, Alzheimer’s is a distinct type of dementia, representing 60 to 80 percent of cases and notably being a leading cause of death in the U.S. Initially, all forms of dementia have mild symptoms that intensify with time, eventually hindering long-term memory and the overall cognitive function.

Identifying early dementia signs is crucial as they can closely mimic typical signs of aging. Keep an eye out for these indicators in your loved ones for timely care intervention:

  • Short-term memory issues
  • Challenges with engaging in conversations
  • Unexplained mood shifts and behaviors
  • Compromised reasoning abilities
  • Decline in visual and spatial awareness
