What is Alzheimer's? | Caring for someone with Dementia

Dementia is a disease that is characterized by loss of brain abilities, causing decreased cognitive function.

Caring for someone with Dementia in Glenn Dale, MD

Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, and affects the memory, thinking and behavior of an estimated 5.4 million Americans, according to the Alzheimer's Association.

Symptoms of Alzheimer's disease typically start to set in when the patient is over the age of 60. When symptoms such as forgetfulness or thinking problems develop before age 60, it is classified as early onset Alzheimer's disease.

There are many home healthcare services, but I highly recommend Interim of Bowie. Where should I begin? They are Heaven-sent to the Bowie area when it comes to home care for workers and homecare for our loved ones. For starters, their management staff is strong—informative, attentive, good listeners, people oriented, diverse, etc. The staff is competent, trained, and passionate—everyone here loves what they do and it shows in their actions, words, and work!

They treat their staff and clients’ wonderfully and they keep them motivated with activities, trainings, home enrichment programs, etc. I’ve never been happier with Interim of Bowie. .
