Caring for Alzheimer’s Disease

Providing Alzheimer’s Care in Stamford, CT, with Home Care Right At Home

Alzheimer’s disease, a leading cause of dementia, primarily impacts older individuals. The disorder results in the degradation of nerve cells in the brain, causing memory loss and cognitive impairment. Given its progressive and chronic nature, at-home care eventually becomes essential for those with Alzheimer’s.

Recognizing the Symptoms

Recognizing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s is vital for effective at-home care. Common symptoms include:

Understanding the Disease Progression

To provide the best support for someone with Alzheimer’s, it is essential to identify their disease stage.

Initial Stage:

During this stage, the patient experiences cognitive disruptions but no noticeable physical symptoms. Family and friends can help by providing care at home. But if family members cannot help enough, a part-time caregiver may be required.

Intermediate Stage:

Loss of muscle coordination and other physical difficulties with daily tasks is the next stage of symptoms. With an increased risk of wandering and disorientation, patient safety becomes paramount. Care that can be provided round-the-clock is required. Caregivers at home helps maintain a daily routine that is essential for disease management and work to improve the patient's ability to communicate as their abilities deteriorate.

Final Stage:

Patients with Alzheimer's disease rarely make it past the intermediate stage. At this point, constant care is required because of the patient's deteriorating mental and physical capacities. Problems with eating, drinking, or breathing may develop, requiring skilled nursing care.
