Dementia Care for Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Forms of Dementia in Ocala, FL
Comfort Keepers helps families provide dementia care for loved ones
Every 67 seconds, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s disease, a form of dementia, and nearly 15 million people are providing care for loved ones with this disease. Add to that the 4 to 5 million adults in the U.S. who struggle with some other form of dementia and the impact on caregivers becomes significant. While these numbers are high, those who are caring for loved ones with dementia may feel like they are all alone in their journey. Comfort Keepers® dementia care can help relieve some of the stress associated with caregiving by providing families and their loved ones with the care and support they need.
What is dementia and Alzheimer’s care?
While most people understand that Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia cause gradual, cognitive decline, they may not realize that there is also a progressive decline in physical abilities, such as an inability to control movements and muscle rigidity. As the person’s symptoms worsen, he or she will require additional help with basic daily activities, like bathing, getting dressed, and preparing meals, requiring more time and help from the family caregiver.Schedule Your Free In-Home Consultation
