Imagine not being able to remember your daughter’s wedding day or the exciting stories your grandson tells you after school. Imagine forgetting who your spouse is or looking at a reflection in the mirror and not realizing it’s you. This is the insidiousness of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
As your loved one’s disease progresses, it’ll continue taking from them; inconsequential short-term memories at first, but then much more meaningful long-term memories until they are no longer who they used to be. It’s true that there is no cure for dementia. However, with the right memory care, your loved one can continue living with meaning and dignity.
Every 66 seconds, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s disease, and more than 5 million Americans currently live with this progressive condition. As bleak as this disease is, research has come a long way in determining what kinds of memory care best support the health and well-being of patients, like your loved one.
