Understanding Dementia as Part Senior Care in Advance, MO
Unless you have been caring for an elderly loved one who is suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's disease, you can't possibly understand just how much hard work providing this level of care can be. At Comfort Keepers, we offer a range of senior care services specifically designed to help you care for your loved one so that they can remain at home rather than spending the rest of their lives in an assisted living facility or nursing home where they might not get the best possible care. Our goal is to create a care plan that provides only the care you need without being intrusive.
In order to fully understand what providing senior care for someone who is suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's disease entails, it is important for you to understand this form of mental illness. Dementia is best described as the slow but steady loss of a person's memory and/or ability to perform routine tasks they are familiar with. In time this loss of ability can significantly impact the person's ability to function and take care of themselves. Alzheimer's disease is considered to be one of the worst forms of dementia and affects 50 to 80 percent of all who are diagnosed with dementia.
