Dementia, a progressive brain condition which leads to a gradual decrease in the ability to perform daily functions, is one of the conditions MAS Home Care specializes in. Dementia affects a person’s memory, thinking, and reasoning capabilities. Alzheimer’s disease is the most well-known type of dementia. This condition generally affects elderly people over the age of 65 and it is suspected that nearly fifty percent of individuals in their 80s have some form of dementia.
Dementia affects the person with the condition as well as the people who care for them. Patients with dementia may experience altered personality, behavior, and mood. This can often be frustrating or confusing to see a family member act out of character, making it harder to know what steps are needed to provide proper care for them. A major concern may be the safety of this person since dementia can limit the ability to do simple tasks. A person with dementia may require full time care, which can be provided by the sensitive team of MAS Home Care.
