At Compassionate Heart we know how important is to provide personalised centred care to all our clients particularly those suffering from cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer’s disease. Most people with this condition prefer to remain at the comfort of their own home rather than move to unfamiliar environment.
Alzheimer disease is the most common form of dementia and affects 1 in 3 over the age of 65yrs. It is not an inevitable consequence of aging. It is caused by a physical disease which progressively attacks the brain. The symptoms may include:
- • Memory loss
- • Difficulty with speech and understanding
- • Periods of mental confusion
- • Changes in behaviour and emotional responses
- • Problems with movement
- • Increased apathy
- • Loss of confidence
However, with the right care and support people with Alzheimer’s disease can continue to live well in their own homes, avoiding the need for residential or nursing home. We always to seek each client behaviour and support them to feel good about themselves.
