Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most prevalent forms of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior.
The symptoms develop over time, slowly, and get worse as you age. The symptoms can be so severe that they can prevent you from accomplishing daily tasks. This disease is a general term for memory loss and other intellectual abilities. It accounts for about 60-80 percent of dementia cases.
One of the most valuable principles to be learned when it comes to providing care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease is that accommodation is key. Your loved one will go through certain changes, all of which are irreversible, and so your role as a caregiver involves being prepared for these changes and coming up with sufficient and often creative ways to maintain a level of normalcy and comfort in spite of them.
