Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. Each year In the UK around 60% of diagnoses of dementia are Alzheimer’s. It can affect any age, but it is rare in anyone under the age of 65. At Cavendish Homecare we specialise in providing home care for those with Alzheimer’s who wish to remain in their own homes. We work to support the patient and their family with the appropriate level of private care to help improve comfort and quality of life.
What is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly affects parts of the brain concerned with memory and thinking skills. Eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks can become difficult. It is named after Alois Alzheimer, the doctor who first described it. Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease. This means that gradually over time more parts of the brain are damaged. As this happens more symptoms develop, and they also get worse. More than 520,000 people in the UK have dementia caused by Alzheimer’s disease.
