Alzheimer’s Disease: Knowing the Symptoms and Managing the Condition.
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, neurological and incurable brain disorder that is characterized by the gradual and irreversible loss of cognitive functions.
It is the most common cause of dementia, a general term for a decline in cognitive ability that interferes with daily life. While it primarily affects older adults, it can occur in people as young as in their 40s and 50s.
Care Options for Alzheimer’s Disease
In-home care for Alzheimer’s patients offers the advantage of allowing the sufferer to remain in the familiar surroundings of their own homes while receiving essential support. Trained caregivers provide assistance with activities of daily living, medication management, and emotional support, enabling patients to maintain a sense of independence and continuity.
