Dementia refers to a person’s impaired ability to make decisions, remember, and think. It can interfere with all kinds of everyday activities. The most common cause is Alzheimer’s. Sadly both are progressive conditions, so the symptoms worsen with time. As a result, anyone with either condition will need special care. Starting this early can be very helpful.
Seniors in the early dementia stage can handle some elements of daily life solo. If you add the proper care tailored to their needs as well, they can still enjoy their lives while living in cognitive decline. They can live with enjoyment, some independence, and dignity at home. By introducing support as soon as possible, you can make things easier. Let’s discuss the advantages of early care.
Firstly, and most importantly, you can establish a routine. It can aid with the obstacles of losing short term memory. Routines are typically linked to procedural and long term memory. Alzheimer’s tends to go after short term memory first. As such, creating a consistent daily routine early after a diagnosis can help massively. People may remember it well into the condition’s middle stages. This could alleviate feelings of anxiety, frustration, and confusion. It also reduces the risk of issues like wandering.
Secondly, you can enact safety precautions. It is common for dementia sufferers to get lost or wander off somewhere. This can put their wellbeing in jeopardy. Introducing safety modifications and preventive measures early can help stop incidents from occurring. Your care team will help you determine what measures are necessary.
Lastly, care services can give family caregivers a break. Caring for someone with dementia is a marathon rather than a sprint. It can drain people mentally and physically. Having professional carers come in can enable primary caregivers to care for themselves and recharge. This is better for everyone.
