What Is Alzheimer’s?

While memory problems are associated with the aging process, it should be noted that Alzheimer’s is not a natural symptom of aging. Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that impacts memory, recognition, and behavior. Symptoms develop slowly over time. Severe cases of Alzheimer’s can result in the inability to function socially, communicate, or care for oneself.

How Do I Know if a Loved One has Alzheimer’s?

Because Alzheimer’s impacts memory and recognition, some recognizable symptoms include forgetting the season, year, or date, forgetting directions or losing spatial recognition, and new or worsening behavioral traits like anxiety or irritation. Usually, an Alzheimer’s diagnosis is triggered by your loved one’s memory problems interfering with everyday tasks, such as adhering to a schedule, remembering an appointment, or maintaining an orderly home. Your family member’s doctor will be able to provide a full diagnosis and offer treatments that can help mediate symptoms; in home care in Fairfield, Trumbull, Westport, Shelton, and the surrounding area can help you make sure that your doctor’s recommendations are followed every day by your loved one.
