Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia. The word dementia describes a set of symptoms that can include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language.
These symptoms occur when the brain is damaged by certain diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease.
Some years ago the outcomes for someone with Dementia was limited and normally resulted in that person going into residential care. 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 will have Dementia and almost everybody will know somebody with Dementia.
Being diagnosed with Dementia/Alzheimer’s can be an extremely worrying and stressful time for the individual and their loved ones. Our experience can help families during this time and the years after this diagnosis. People can still live with a good quality of life after diagnosis and we can support people with dementia to continue living at home safely and make their lives easier, whilst supporting the families around them.
When a person with dementia finds that their mental abilities are declining, they often feel vulnerable and are in need of reassurance and support. The people closest to them – including their carers, friends and family – need to do everything they can to support the person to retain their sense of identity and feelings of self-worth. We train our care and support workers in caring and supporting individuals and families coping with dementia/Alzheimer.
