Quality In-Home Dementia Care

Dementia Care

Respectful & Devoted Service

Dementia is a serious and often misunderstood chronic condition that affects roughly 47 million people around the world. The word ‘dementia’ is actually the umbrella term to refer to life-altering symptoms like impaired judgment, memory loss, shifts in personality and behavior, and loss of physical abilities. It is most commonly caused by Alzheimer’s and Lewy body disease, but can also result from Parkinson’s disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, or Huntington’s disease. The underlying disease can determine how someone experiences dementia, and impact how symptoms change as the disease progresses.

If your loved one has been diagnosed with dementia, you might be stressed, wondering how you can best care for them. Allow the knowledgeable team at Homewatch CareGivers® to step in and provide in-home care services that will help your loved one maintain their independence and life live to the fullest.

The Roots of Compassion & Kindness Apply to Everything We Do Read Our Story

Alzheimer’s & Lewy Body Disease

Alzheimer’s disease affects over five million Americans and is the most common cause of dementia. People with Alzheimer’s tend to experience a gradual decline in memory and judgment as their brain cells degenerate and die. Physical deterioration is unlikely to occur until long after the disease has been diagnosed unless another disease is present.

Individuals with Lewy body disease may have symptoms similar to Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s in addition to hallucinations. Lewy body disease can also cause changes in behavior, depression, and tremors.
