The words “Dementia” and “Alzheimer’s” are used interchangeably but in reality, they are not synonymous with each other. Dementia refers to a group of symptoms related to cognitive impairment and is not necessarily connected with age. Alzheimer’s, on the other hand, generally sets in during the golden years and is commonly associated with memory loss. You may have heard about elderly ladies wandering out of the house in the middle of the night or Grandpa forgetting how to brush his teeth. These are symptoms of Alzheimer’s; although seemingly innocent and funny at times, symptoms of Alzheimer’s can lead to disastrous results if not monitored properly.
If you or a loved one is experiencing early symptoms of Alzheimer’s, it is best to get treated by a doctor before symptoms get worse. Though there is no known cure, treatment for Alzheimer’s is available. Doctors strongly recommend the presence of a caregiver in the home, especially as in-home health care has become the widespread trend across America.
