People with memory challenges, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), or more advanced dementia do better living in a familiar environment, even as their disease progresses. They’re happier, less agitated, and better able to maintain their quality of life in a place they know and love. But family caregivers can’t do it alone. Even the most devoted care partner needs respite care and time to rest and recharge. We’ve helped thousands of families living with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia get the support they need so their loved one can live safely at home.

Whether your loved one is experiencing memory problems, confusion, difficulty planning, managing their finances, or completing familiar tasks, our team will support them through these challenges and provide cognitive engagement to improve their quality of life. Before starting care, we’ll get to know them as a person, not just a patient, understanding who your loved one was before their cognitive decline and what they’re passionate about today. We’ll meet your loved one where they are on their journey and help them continue to be who they are—living safely in the home they love. And we’ll help you and other family members get the support and respite care you need to rest and recharge.

Understanding Dementia

Dementia is not merely forgetfulness. It is an overarching term that describes a group of symptoms linked to memory decline, cognitive impairment, and the inability to perform daily tasks. As one progresses through dementia’s stages, the challenges intensify, leaving both the individual and their families navigating a labyrinth of emotions, adjustments, and decisions.

The most well-known form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, but there are several other types, each with its unique set of symptoms and challenges. What remains consistent across the spectrum is the profound impact it has on the affected individual and their loved ones.

Dementia Unraveled

At its core, dementia isn’t a specific disease. Instead, it describes a group of symptoms affecting memory, cognitive functions, and social abilities severely enough to interfere with daily living. Dementia is more than just occasional forgetfulness; it’s a decline in thinking skills that impacts a person’s ability to perform everyday activities.

Recognizing the Signs

Memory Loss

The most commonly recognized sign. This isn’t just forgetting where one put their keys but forgetting important dates or asking for the same information repeatedly.

Difficulty in Task Completion

Struggling with familiar tasks at home or at work. For instance, they might forget how to tie their shoelaces or prepare their favorite meal.

Problem with Words

They may forget simple words or substitute inappropriate words, making their sentences difficult to understand. May also struggle with following or joining a conversation.

Disorientation with Time or Place

They might lose track of dates, seasons, or even years. They may forget where they are or how they got there.

Decreased Judgment

Dementia affects decision-making skills. For instance, they may use poor judgment when dealing with money, struggle with everyday choices such as dressing appropriately for the weather.

Misplacing Things

They might place things in unusual places, like putting a watch in the sugar jar, and not be able to trace their steps to find it. They may also forget the purpose of common items.

Mood and Personality Changes

They may become confused, suspicious, depressed, anxious, or fearful. They might also become easily upset at home, with friends, or in places where they are out of their comfort zone.

Withdrawal from Social Activities

They might withdraw from hobbies, social activities, or other engagements.

Dementia’s Causes and Risk Factors

The damaged brain cells cause dementia. The type of dementia depends on the affected region of the brain. For instance, Alzheimer’s disease damages the hippocampus, the part of the brain essential for learning.

Several factors increase the risk of developing dementia, including aging, family history, and genetics. However, many other determinants, like lifestyle and heart health, can influence vulnerability. Research has shown that regular exercise, a healthy diet, and mental stimulation can help lower the risk.
