Fortunately, our care community at Rittenhouse Village At Northside is equipped to handle your loved ones and ensure that their quality of life improves.
Dementia is a medical condition that leads to the erosion of cognitive functions in a patient that they are unable to function normally and independently. These cognitive functions include memory, reasoning, and thinking. While dementia is not a normal part of aging, it gets progressively worse as the patients grow older. At its earliest stages, it does not affect the patient’s ability to function. However, it often becomes progressively worse until the patient cannot function without assistance. Dementia is not currently curable although there are many interventions that can be taken to help patients enjoy a higher quality of life.
Challenges of Managing Dementia at Home
As the condition becomes progressively worse, it may lead to symptoms such as confusion, trouble paying bills or handling money, inability to name familiar everyday objects, and so on. In some cases, affected victims may get lost in familiar neighborhoods, creating additional risks for the victim. This is why it is important for your loved ones to get the assistance that they need, to ensure that they are safe and that the condition does not impair their quality of life.
