Most people would prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home as they age. However, people who have a loved one that has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia have a hard time believing that could be possible. The fact is that these conditions do require specialized care but caregiving companies like Golden Heart Senior Care make it affordable and accessible to everyone. With Alzheimer’s care and dementia care, we can help your loved one fulfill their dream and avoid having to move to an assisted living facility or a nursing home while staying safe and comfortable.
If your loved one has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, you may not know much about it. This condition, thought to be hereditary, has a negative impact on parts of the human brain responsible for thought, memory, and language. At the onset, symptoms are very mild and include things like forgetting names or what happened yesterday. However, over time, your loved one may start developing anxiety and aggressive behavior. They may even forget how to do basic things like brush their hair, go to the bathroom or eat. In most people, other parts of the brain start degenerating and they will experience vascular and other issues.
