Dementia: Signs, Symptoms, and How It Affects You

Dementia: Signs, Symptoms, and How It Affects You

Memory loss can be a tell-tale sign of dementia. Senior adults diagnosed with dementia would mostly require senior care services for them to receive maximized care and attention. 

Dementia is caused by abnormal brain changes that result in the decline of thinking skills and independent living. Other symptoms of this brain disorder include:

  • Cognitive changes such as problems in communication and handling complex tasks.
  • Psychological and personality changes including paranoia, agitation, and depression.
  • Poor nutrition because someone with progressive dementia would reduce or stop eating.
  • Inability to take care of oneself because this interferes with their daily tasks like bathing, medication, brushing, and other self-care activities.

Our home care in Birmingham, Alabama knows that these changes bring emotional, physical, and psychological stress to anyone, and we are here to help.

Through our specialty program, our elderly caregiver in Alabama can deliver proper Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care.
