Is Dementia Care At Home Right For My Loved One?
In the early stages of dementia, people can live independently at home, especially if they stay socially active, prioritise their mental and physical health, talk to familiar people regularly and stay in a routine.
However, as the illness progresses, you or your loved one may need help with basic day to day tasks, such as personal care, medication management, shopping, meal preparation and household chores. Help leaving the home to attend appointments and socialise may also be required.
It is usually best for someone living with dementia to receive this help in their own home. This is because a change of environment and routine can be extremely difficult for someone living with dementia.
Dementia is a broad term that covers a wide range of medical conditions recognised for affecting the way our brain works. Alzheimer’s Disease is the main cause of dementia, however, there are other causes, such as chronic depression, medication side effects, thyroid problems and vitamin deficiencies. Dementia can also be the result of a stroke or a series of mini-strokes.
Alzheimer’s Disease is the leading type of dementia, and Vascular Dementia is the second most common type of dementia. Mixed dementia, is a combination of the two.
Symptoms of dementia vary from person to person.
