Memory Care – Alzheimer’s Disease
Many of us may become absent minded or forgetful as we age, which is considered normal. However, absent mindedness or forgetfulness that interferes with a person’s daily life and normal activities of daily living is not considered normal and could be a sign that an individual has a form of dementia.
Here are some common signs of dementia:
- Memory Loss
- Impaired abstract thinking (inability to sequence events, for example)
- Decreased problem-solving ability
- Poor Judgment
- Language Disturbance
- Inability to care for self
- Personality and mood disturbances
- Loss of impulse control (lack of inhibition)
The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease. To help better explain Alzheimer’s disease we are providing this link to a fabulous source from the National Institute on Aging. Here is the link:
This link provides a fact sheet on Alzheimer’s Disease and all of its stages. It is a wonderful resource for this difficult disease we are facing in our communities.
