WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DEMENTIA AND ALZHEIMER’S?

It’s easy to consider the Alzheimer’s and Dementia as the same condition but actually, Dementia is not a specific disease. Dementia is a group of conditions characterized by impairment of at least two brain functions, such as memory loss and judgment. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, “Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that affects memory, thinking and behavior.

Symptoms eventually grow severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.” As you can imagine, this makes Alzheimer’s the most common cause of the dementia condition, accounting for between 60-80% of dementia cases.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF DEMENTIA AND ALZHEIMER’S?

One of the most common early symptoms of Alzheimer’s and Dementia is having difficulty remembering newly learned information. In later stages, Alzheimer’s and Dementia symptoms can also include mood and behavioral changes, disorientation, deepening confusion about events, time and place; more serious memory loss and behavior changes; unfounded suspicions about family, friends and professional caregivers; and difficulty speaking, swallowing and walking.

TIPS FOR CARING FOR SOMEONE WITH DEMENTIA

Providing home care for a loved one with dementia can be a significant challenge. However, establishing a structured and supportive environment can significantly improve their quality of life.

Here are some key strategies to consider:

  • Implement a Consistent Routine: Create a regular schedule for daily activities, including meals, bathing, and medication administration. This predictability reduces confusion and anxiety for the patient.
  • Utilize Visual Aids: Employ calendars and to-do lists prominently displayed to enhance organization and memory function for you and your loved one. These visual cues can be invaluable for appointments and daily tasks.
  • Effective Medication Management: Develop a reliable system to ensure timely medication adherence. Consider pill organizers or medication reminder alarms to promote consistent medication intake.
  • Incorporate Assistive Devices: Explore using medical and mobility aids like shower chairs to improve safety and independence during daily activities.
  • Plan Meaningful Activities: Engage your loved one in activities they find enjoyable, such as listening to music or engaging in gentle walks. Regularly scheduling these activities provides comfort and structure.
  • Prioritize Easy Clothing: To simplify dressing and undressing, opt for loose-fitting clothing with elastic waistbands and fabric closures (instead of laces, buttons, or buckles).
  • Maintain Consistent Meals: Establish regular mealtimes and offer familiar, easy-to-eat foods. This consistency promotes a sense of normalcy and reduces potential mealtime stress.
  • Practice Patience and Respect. Approach each interaction with empathy and understanding. Clearly explain your actions and involve them in the process whenever possible.

Providing care for a loved one with dementia demands significant patience, compassion, and a commitment to understanding their changing needs. By implementing these strategies and establishing routines, you can create a supportive home environment that enhances their well-being.
