What Is the Difference Between Assisted Living and Memory Care?
While assisted living facilities provide excellent care for seniors who
solely need additional care and support, if your loved one is suffering
from dementia or
Alzheimer's, memory care is a specialized facility that is able to care for these
disorders. Memory care works with each patient to address their memory
related illness as well as other factors that affect the illness, such
as nutrition, exercise, cognitive function, and more.
What Are The Symptoms Of Dementia?
Some of the most common signs and symptoms of dementia include:
- Memory loss
- Difficulty communicating or understanding language
- Disorientation and confusion
- Inability to recognize certain objects
- Mood swings
What Is the Difference Between Dementia and Alzheimer's?
It's not uncommon for people outside of the medical world to use dementia
and Alzheimer's interchangeably. While they share many of the same
symptoms, dementia and Alzheimer's are starkly different. The main
thing to recognize is that Alzheimer's is actually a disease whereas
dementia isn't. Instead, dementia refers to a series of symptoms that
have a large impact on memory, the ability to communicate effectively,
and the ability to perform daily activities. Therefore, Alzheimer's
is one of the most common causes of dementia.
Additionally, while Alzheimer's is a disease, dementia is often the
result of disease(s). For example, people with Huntington's disease
and Parkinson's disease commonly develop dementia following their
What Are the 7 Stages of Dementia?
- People with no dementia diagnosis and no mental or physical symptoms of
dementia are considered stage 1.
- There is normal forgetfulness that can be characterized as normal signs
of aging. You may notice some level of forgetfulness, but dementia symptoms
are still not highly apparent.
- Also known as mild cognitive impairment (MCI), stage 3 dementia will show
increased forgetfulness, decreased performance at work, speech difficulty,
and difficulty focusing on everyday tasks.
- Also known as moderate cognitive decline, this stage usually lasts around
2 years. The cognitive issues can be detected during an exam. Individuals
in stage 4 have difficulty concentrating, can forget recent events, have
difficulty managing finances and difficulty traveling alone. It is also
common in this stage to have difficulty socializing.
- This stage is where mid-stage dementia starts. The dementia symptoms will
become very easy to identify and the individual will need help completing
daily living activities. Short-term memory will be mostly lost and confusion
and forgetfulness will be more pronounced throughout activities of daily living.
- In stage 6, a person with dementia can start forgetting the names of family
and friends. They may also have little memory of recent events. Communication
is severely disabled and delusions, compulsions, anxiety, and agitation
- This is the last stage where very severe cognitive decline lasts an average
of 2.5 years. A person in this stage usually has no ability to speak or
communicate and requires assistance with most activities, including walking.
