Memory Care

 

The Difference Between Alzheimer’s & Dementia

Dementia is the overarching term for memory loss. All memory loss is classified in terms of stages. Most families have to deal with those in the early stages:

  • lowered attention span,
  • recurrent visual hallucinations,
  • varying periods of being able to think clearly
  • varying periods of confusion

 

Over time, as more parts of the brain will become affected,  memory loss increases.  It is because of this that the differences from one cause of dementia to another are subtle.

 

Under the term of Dementia you will find Alzheimer's Disease. Alzheimer's accounts for a large percentage of dementia cases. It is classified when cognitive abilities are reduced enough to interfere with daily life.

 

As Alzheimer's disease or dementia progresses, the level of care and assistance a person requires increases. While many families prefer to keep their loved one home for as long as possible, a person who suffers from dementia and Alzheimer's will eventually require 24-hour supervised care.

 

Exceptional Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care

Axis Home Care Services uses the revolutionary Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM) for those with dementia. This method of care was designed specifically to promote mental acuity and brain health for seniors at all levels of cognition.

 

An Axis Home Care Services caregiver is specifically trained in how to provide CTM activities with his or her clients on a one-to-one basis.  At the same time our caregivers will also provide assistance with daily activities and support which varies through each stage of dementia.

 

With live in home Alzheimer’s and Dementia care from Axis Home Care Services, your loved one can age safely in the comfort of home with dignity and respect.

 

Flexible Memory Care Home Solutions by Axis

Seniors in the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s or Dementia can benefit from part-time hourly care designed to help with day-to-day activities like: grocery shopping, light housework, and personal care. Our part-time program also ensures that your loved one takes necessary medications on time, eats regular meals throughout the day, and receives reminders for other basic activities he or she might forget about.

 

As Alzheimer’s or Dementia progresses, your loved one will benefit from our specialized live-in Alzheimer's care. Compassionate Alzheimer’s caregivers provide around-the-clock safety monitoring to decrease the risk of wandering and ease the symptoms of sundowning. It is important to understand that consistent companionship can further reduce depression, anxiety, and confusion for those with Alzheimer's or Dementia.
