Dementia is a syndrome and health condition that is characterized by a declining memory, along with declining cognition, judgment and reasoning. Unlike other memory-related diseases like Alzheimer’s, which is degenerative, dementia is an umbrella term that includes several other memory and cognition related diseases and conditions that aren’t always degenerative in nature. Dementia, therefore, comes in many types and people can unfortunately suffer from different types of dementia at the same time. This is called mixed dementia.
Regardless of the type of dementia that one might have, most people have dementia in three stages: early, middle and late-stage dementia. In some cases, dementia can be treated very effectively. However, in cases where dementia escalates to Alzheimer’s, that, as well as other types of dementia-related illnesses, proves to be difficult to treat.
Care with Respect
Dementia patient care in the early stages of the disease is more effective due to the relatively mild effects of dementia on the daily functioning of an elderly loved one. In most cases, the early stages are the ones that last the longest, and can last anywhere from 2 to 10 years. In the middle stages, there’s significant deterioration and home care for dementia patients will not be as effective in terms of fighting against the symptoms. However, it’ll be more important at this stage since the more care your elderly loved one receives, the better their quality of life will be.
This is also true for the late stages, where the deterioration is rapid and any and all care is extremely important. This is usually the stage when we’re called in as caretakers and family members like yourselves need a little extra hand in taking care of the nitty-gritty details and professional help is necessary to better manage some of the issues that your elderly loved one faces.
