Alzheimer's and Dementia Care

It is common for seniors to show signs of memory loss but in some cases, the consequences of a fading memory can be quite severe. For family members and for the seniors themselves, the thought that this condition may mean the onset of dementia or Alzheimer's can be intimidating. How will they deal with it? How bad can it get? Is there a way to stop it from getting worse? Getting answers to these questions begins with first understanding the differences between dementia and Alzheimer's.

An individual diagnosed with dementia will suffer from symptoms showing declining mental ability that prevents them from being able to take care of themselves and performing daily routines independently. It's not uncommon to find that dementia is the outcome of Alzheimer's. However, Alzheimer's is a disease that causes the brain to progressively lose cognitive function and suffer memory loss.

Money Matters for Retirees

Whether we care to admit or not, money does make the world turn. We spend decades in careers or building businesses to earn money to care for our families, take vacations, make our homes, and do other things we want. Eventually, responsibilities evolve to that of retirement and how to care for you and your spouse when you reach that golden age. Many of us dream of spending our days on the golf course, traveling, or taking up long-abandoned hobbies. You may get to retirement age and discover you do not have adequate income to do all that you dream of, or you may not understand the nuances of living off a fixed income. Retirees and their caregivers benefit from knowing more about financial matters, making other important aspects of life, such as aging in place, much more accessible and manageable.

It starts with getting or remaining active and exercising within your abilities. By doing both, you boost your body’s ability to handle aging in place.
