Learn More about Dementia
Dementia does not relate to a specific disease. Rather it is an “umbrella” term used to describe a wide range of symptoms and diseases associated with a person’s memory, thought process, language, judgment and behavior. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia.
For those with dementia, performing everyday activities can be a challenge. For many who live with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, well-being and safety may be compromised. When this happens, those who suffer with dementia and their families need help.
As a friend or family member of a person impacted by dementia, your goal must be to find a senior care provider or a Memory Care community where your loved one can receive meaningful care, both emotionally and physically. It is critical for those living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia to live in a setting where their disease is understood and their day reflects their reality. The person with dementia must be able to thrive and feel like they belong. They should also have:
- Private space as well as opportunities for socialization.
- Meals with foods that are appealing and help available during mealtimes.
- Most importantly, the Memory Care community must foster an environment where residents are cherished for who they are and who they were.
