Dementia is a degenerative brain disease that appears later in life, at more advanced ages. About 1 in 6 people over 80 experience dementia. Alzheimer’s is one well-known form of this devastating progression of memory loss, confusion, poor judgement, and irregular personality or mood changes.
The ramifications of dementia for the elderly and their families are extensive and challenging to manage. Although symptoms vary, memory loss is proven to be an initial symptom of this cognitive digression. Social withdrawal can also be an effect of these distressing life changes. As time goes on their ability to handle basic physical tasks like maintaining hygiene can also suffer.
Cornerstone Caregiving lessens potential loneliness and isolation with trained Caregivers that understand your loved one’s unique circumstances. They are well-informed in the specifics of Dementia and Alzheimers, and equipped to assist with these care needs. Our Caregivers provide a safe space for your loved one to adapt with dignity through these difficult times. This could look like medicine reminders, puzzles for cognitive exercise, or activities as simple as patiently listening to your loved one’s thoughts or memories.
Here are a few examples of how we help seniors dealing with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
“The compassion, love, care and concern you or your loved ones will be treated with from Cornerstone is such a blessing! They will treat you like family and are built on integrity, their faith and love, and desire to provide you the best possible care!”
