One of the most difficult aspects of aging is suffering from memory loss. It occurs within millions of Americans across the country and can do a great deal of damage to minds and bodies alike. At Assisting Hands, we provide Alzheimer’s and dementia care services for senior citizens and adults with disabilities in Niles, IL.
We take care of day-to-day tasks that may be impossible for affected individuals to complete on their own. We also work with our clients to stimulate greater brain activity. This latter component of our services can do wonders in preserving memory functions.
More on Memory Loss
While Alzheimer’s disease is simply one form of dementia, it is shown to affect roughly 10% of U.S. citizens 65 years of age or older. This means that millions more are affected by other forms of dementia and memory loss, as well. Short-term memories are often the first to go and can progress until individuals are unable to hold conversations or take care of themselves.
If you or a loved one is approaching this age bracket, it is important to be aware of common signs and symptoms of memory loss. Among them include:
- Pervasive forgetfulness when it comes to completing day-to-day tasks
- Short-term memory loss and difficulty holding conversations
- Aimlessly wandering around the home
- Agitation due to forgetting things
If you notice these or similar behaviors from a loved one, they may be in need of memory care. Being proactive can slow their rate of memory loss and help them remain mentally aware.
