Learn About All of Your Home Care Options
Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia that can interfere with daily activities and cause memory loss that gets worse over time. This progressive brain disorder causes damage to the brain cells and eventually destroys them, which leads to changes in how the brain functions. BrightStar Care in Hot Springs Village offers in-home Alzheimer’s care services, and home caregivers assist with daily activities such as bathing, hygiene, dressing and eating. Our Alzheimer’s home care providers ensure that your loved one is always in good hands as they remain in a safe and familiar environment.
Early Signs and Symptoms
The most common symptom of Alzheimer’s disease is memory loss. Often an individual will begin to show signs of difficulty when they attempt to recall newly learned information. As the disease progresses, more severe symptoms begin to appear such as disorientation, changes in mood and behavior, confusion about life events and the current time, and difficulty speaking, swallowing or walking.
When to Ask for Help
Providing daily care for someone with Alzheimer’s is a task that impacts your entire life. Family caregivers should remember that it is okay to ask for help when things become difficult or too overwhelming -- or when safety becomes a concern.
