Alzheime’rs is a progressive disease that affects the brain and is the most common cause of dementia. Due to its progressive nature more parts of the brain are damaged over time; making the symptoms more severe.
Alzheimer’s disease affects people differently, but one of the most frequent symptoms is memory loss which can cause the sufferer confusion and mood swings, resulting in a loss of confidence.
As the disease progresses, people with Alzheimers may need help with their daily activities. However, due to the memory loss symptom it is important that the sufferer is in comfortable surroundings to help put them at ease, which is why a regular carer would be most helpful to them.
Our carers can help you on a one-to-one basis with all domestic duties that may have become more difficult, as well as providing personal care.
A House of Care Services carer will also be a companion to support you emotionally as well as physically.
