Alzheimer’s and Dementia and How We Care For It

Dementia is a medical condition confirmed by a group of symptoms that primarily affects short or long-term memory, thinking, and social abilities severely enough to interfere with your daily tasks and interactions. Dementia isn’t a specific disease, but many neurological conditions and diseases can cause dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia.

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurological condition that affects brain size, causing it to shrink and brain cells to die. This condition affects a person’s independence as it affects their behavioral and social skills, memory and it is a continuous declining process. In most cases, home or professional care is needed for people suffering from this condition.

Some of the early signs of Alzheimer’s are wandering, forgetting recent events conversations, or small details, and experiencing aggressions. As the disease progresses, a person with Alzheimer’s disease will develop severe memory deterioration and lose the ability to perform everyday tasks.
There are no known cures for Alzheimer’s but medication and cognitive exercises can help temporarily with memory symptoms and other cognitive changes. The most important treatment for a patient with dementia is support and care, as the disease progresses, It is more difficult on the patient and family, so emotional support is needed.

Signature’s skilled nurses can help with disease and medication education. Signature’s physical, occupational, and speech pathology therapists can help with balance, training, exercise programs, speech, and activities of daily living.

Also, Signature nurses and therapists can treat dementia and Alzheimer’s by developing custom care plans that include physical safety and wellbeing, emotional health, and socialization. Our goal is to help our patients have the best quality of life while maintaining their independence at home.
