Alzheimer’s Disease And Elderly Care
Alzheimer’s disease is devastating to the afflicted person but can be even
worse for the family of an elderly person with Alzheimer’s.
Physiologically, Alzheimer’s is characterized by the breakdown of nerve cells
and neural pathways in the brain which eventually lead to massive cell death.
The first areas of the brain to be effected by Alzheimer’s are the areas
associated with memory. Since Alzheimer’s is rarely diagnosed in the
earliest stage, the deterioration of neural pathways continues until cognitive
abilities, like recognition of familiar faces and things, and motor skills are
seriously impaired. Unfortunately, medical science has not yet discovered
a way to prevent or treat Alzheimer’s so elderly people diagnosed with the
disease have little choice but to deal with the disease. As Alzheimer’s
advances, the families and caregivers of people with the disease are often put
into a position where personal care is no longer viable. In such
instances, the elderly person with Alzheimer’s actually has several options,
including in-home care by a licensed nurse or admittance to a specialized
elderly care facility.
