While it is not necessarily a specific disease on its own, dementia is an overall term that describes the grouping of symptoms that go with a decline in memory or thinking skills. They affect a person so much that they can no longer perform necessary everyday activities. Alzheimer"s disease is the cause of about 60-80% of all cases of dementia. People often group severe memory loss as a normality of the aging process, but this is not the case. Other areas affected by dementia can include the following:
Focus and attention span
Reason and judgment
Vision and spatial awareness
Short-term memory is usually the most significant portion of the mind that is affected first. Simple things like appointments, bills, and names are forgotten. When these things start to happen, it may be time to seek out support and help for your loved one and their living situation. A Place To Call Home is proud to be a full-service facility that offers experienced and professional dementia care services for the residents of Vancouver, WA, and the surrounding area.Dementia Care Vancouver WA
