More than six million Americans ages sixty-five and over are living with Alzheimer’s, a progressive disease and form of dementia that affects behavior, thinking and memory. Though Alzheimer’s ranks high on the list of causes for memory loss, not all cases are due to Alzheimer’s. The risk for cognitive decline increases with age, and other common causes include blood vessel disease, drug/alcohol abuse, and brain injury. Managing everyday tasks along with tending to daily personal care needs can be difficult for those living with memory loss. While Alzheimer’s disease, injury and other factors that interfere with memory can sometimes be managed with medications, support at home may still be necessary. Varying levels of care are often needed to ensure one’s safety and wellbeing throughout the day and night. When activities of daily living aren’t able to be met independently, in-home care can help.
Our team at Aqua Home Care is committed to referring caregivers who provide quality in-home care services. We see the benefits these services bring to the daily lives of in-home care recipients living with memory loss, as well as the peace of mind it brings to their families.
