Alzheimers Home Care in Bridgeport, WV and the Surrounding Area

Do you or someone you love suffer from Alzheimer’s? It’s vital to remember that you’re not alone. As many as 5.7 million Americans deal with this disease every year. At the moment, there isn’t a cure for Alzheimer’s. But there are treatments available and Alzheimer's home care to better the lives of those who suffer from it and slow the worsening of the disease. It’s important to be aware of recognizing symptoms, so you or someone you love can start treatment as soon as possible.

Here are the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s:

  1. Memory loss that disrupts everyday life
  2. Challenges in planning or solving problems
  3. Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home or at work
  4. Confusion about time or place
  5. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships
  6. Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps
  7. Withdrawal from work or social activities
  8. Changes in mood or personality
  9. New problems with words in speaking or writing
  10. Decreased or poor judgment when making decisions

Are the above warning signs familiar to you? Be sure to get in contact with a physician and get screened for Alzheimer’s as soon as possible. Many of these symptoms can be mistaken for normal parts of the aging process. It’s important to know the differences between the normal aging process and Alzheimer’s. With Alzheimer’s, these symptoms gradually increase and get worse with time. During normal aging, a person may experience one or more of these symptoms in different degrees.

When receiving an Alzheimer’s diagnosis, it’s important to be proactive in your decision to provide Alzheimer's home care. If you or someone you love is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, follow these basic steps:

  1. Educate yourself about the disease
  2. Encourage cognitive stimulation
  3. Take care of financial, legal, and long-term care planning issues
  4. Arrange respite and/or regular Alzheimer's home care 
  5. Build a strong support system
