Dementia stages

According to the Alzheimer?s Association, over 15 million Americans are caring for a loved one with dementia. There are several different kinds of dementia, but the one most commonly associated with old age is Alzheimer?s Disease (AD), which is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. A complex condition, AD cannot be successfully treated with any one drug or treatment, however it can be managed and slowed down. As the disease progresses, it becomes more difficult for loved ones to be cared for at home, and usually, assisted living that specialize in Alzheimer?s care is a better option.

Most assisted living residences provide 24-hour supervision, and three meals a day in a group dining room. In addition, a wide range of services are available at differing levels of independence for the senior.
