Caring for Dementia and Assisted Living Care in Phoenix, AZ

01 Aug 2018

Across the country, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia have turned into a growing problem. As per the Alzheimer’s Association, one out of every eight baby boomers will develop the condition in the coming years. There are so many senior people living with the disease currently. All of this does not mean that dementia is always obvious as the symptoms can be subtle and those suffering from memory loss will sometimes make an effort to disguise the disease as the normal changes of old age.

If you have senior family members suffering from mobility issues or memory problems, they would require assisted living care and support for living a normal life. The best senior living option in this regard is going for an assisted living facility such as the award-winning Anthem Senior Living in the Phoenix region in Arizona. You can expect for your loved one to receive the best form of Anthem assisted living care and support.

It is important for family caregivers to never ignore a senior moment. They should look for signs that there may be a chronic condition developing. You should also look for a few signs like your dad refused to try a new card game, something he’s always loved to do in the past; a senior person may be having more and more trouble learning any new information. It may be time to take proactive steps if a senior is showing similar changes in behavior or mental health.

A few of the prominent signs of Alzheimer’s disease include:

  1. First and foremost, look for shifts in attitude. A parent who used to be outgoing and fun, but is starting to become withdrawn, may be developing dementia and would need Alzheimer’s care. Likewise, mood swings or irritability could be warning signs.
  2. You and the caregivers should also be concerned, if a loved one is having problems with decision making or completing tasks that used to be easy.
  • Difficulties with vision and language can also be symptoms of dementia. In such a scenario, families may want to or should consider transitioning an older adult to a senior living community, where he or she can stay active, engaged and safe.
