Dementia is not a single disorder, but a group of disorders that have similar symptoms. Dementia is characterized by a steady decline in one’s mental abilities—typically related to old age. Memory loss is the most common sign of dementia, but there are other indications or warning signs. According to the Mayo Clinic, some of the more common indicators of dementia include:
Difficulty communicating or finding the right words.
Difficulty reasoning or problem-solving.
Difficulty with communication or speaking.
Difficulty with planning and organizing.
Difficulty with coordination and motor functions.
Confusion and disorientation
Over time, as the dementia progresses, someone with the disorder will need more and more assistance. If your loved one is living with dementia, it can be emotionally draining to watch their decline on a daily basis. Our dementia care services can help take some of the responsibility and stress away from you.

What is Dementia Care?
In general, dementia is a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks, serious enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Our services help people with these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths, while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to perform.Contact Us
