Alzheimer’s disease is a debilitating condition that causes the brain cells to die. As the brain shrinks, it leads to a decline in social, behavioral, and cognitive functioning, making it hard for individuals with Alzheimer’s to live independently. As the disease progresses, people with Alzheimer’s eventually suffer from severe memory loss and become unable to go about their everyday tasks. It can be difficult to care for a person with Alzheimer’s as they often suffer from changes in personality and behavior, such as mood swings and social withdrawal.
In the United States, many older adults suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. Although there is no available treatment that can cure Alzheimer’s, services and programs based on research have been created to help support Alzheimer’s patients.
At Aston Gardens At Pelican Marsh, we are one of the memory care providers who have gained national recognition for being excellent in memory care. Our highly skilled medical staff will ensure that residents with Alzheimer’s will be well taken care of.
