ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE AFFECTS NEARLY

5.4 MILLION PEOPLE

 

Alzheimer's Disease is the best known of an entire spectrum of diseases known as dementia.

 

At Always Best Care, we know that extra attention and tender compassionate care must accompany every service we provide. Our caregivers are trained using tools created by "In-The-Know," the Alzheimer's Association and the Department of Health.

 

Although the two terms are often used interchangeably, there is a difference between Alzheimer's and dementia. Think of dementia as an umbrella that covers all types of cognitive decline, and Alzheimer's disease as one of the many types of disorders that is under the umbrella. Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, and the Alzheimer's Foundation states that up to 64% of all dementias are due to Alzheimer's.

 

But Alzheimer's is often diagnosed after other types of dementia have been ruled out, as the disease can only be definitively diagnosed with a post-mortem

autopsy on the brain.

 

The Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) defines dementia as "an overall decline in intellectual

function, including difficulties with language, simple calculations, planning and judgment, and motor skills, as well

as loss of memory."
