An innovative dementia care program begins with an all-encompassing discussion between the patient and their family. This conversation can help ease the transition for both the patient and the caregiver by facilitating a relationship of comfort and security. The family also gets a better idea of what the patient needs from them, enabling them to understand what skills they need to acquire to provide care and support for their family member.
Alzheimer’s, the most common type of dementia, has been diagnosed in roughly 6 million Americans. Memory decline is the defining symptom of Alzheimer’s, and robs its sufferers of meaningful lives and relationships. Memory loss often affects other areas of cognition such as language and problem solving, making it difficult to remember even important details about a person’s life such as phone numbers and names.
At its most severe, Alzheimer’s can result in severe memory loss, even to the point of forgetting the way home. And while these symptoms may seem more common in older people, they can also appear in younger family members who carry a gene that predisposed them to develop it.
