Alzheimer's & Dementia Care
EUROCARE has available caregivers who have extensive experience in caring for adults with Alzheimer's and dementia. If you or your loved one have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia, there are caregivers available from EUROCARE ready to help you.
As the baby boomers generation ages, more and more people are now experiencing the devastating effects of dementia.This disease is projected to affect 20 million Americans by mid-century.
Illustrated by memory loss and a cognitive decline that impede one's daily life, dementia increasingly weakens a person's thought processing ability, eventually causing radical changes in mood, behavior and memory. Despite its pervasiveness, Alzheimer’s and related dementia are not a typical part of aging. Alzheimer's causes irreversible changes to the brain that result in problems communicating, thinking, and taking care of basic needs. Symptoms may vary as the disease affects each person differently, but individuals with Alzheimer's inevitably advance through increasingly debilitating stages, requiring progressively more intense levels of care.
Learning about some of Alzheimer's warning signs can help you identify if changes taking place in your loved one go beyond typical age-related symptoms and may be a sign of the brain disease. According to the Alzheimer's Association, occasionally misplacing items, momentarily getting confused, or forgetting someone's name but recalling it later are all typical age-related changes. Signs associated with Alzheimer's may be similar but more severe, including:
- Memory loss that disrupts daily life
- Challenges in planning or solving problems
- Poor judgment and decision making
- Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work or at leisure
- Confusion with time or place (Losing track of the date or the season)
- Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships
- New problems with words in speaking or writing
- Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps
- Withdrawal from work or social activities
- Changes in mood and personality
If you observe one or more of these warning signs of Alzheimer's in your loved one, you should talk to a medical professional.
