Dementia is a category of diseases that affect the brain. A person affected will live through a progressive loss of cognitive functions that eventually will lead to a loss of memory, reasoning, and judgment. They will also endure personality and behavioral changes, loss of physical functions, and ultimately death. The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, but there are other varieties as well. No matter what causes the disease, the diagnosis may leave a family scrambling to care for their loved one as it progresses.
At Wesley Enhanced Living, our employees are the front line of support for our residents. We provide training to help our employees understand this disease and learn techniques to best support our residents with this disease. Remembering these key factors can help you successfully care for a person with dementia.
