Alzheimer is a primary progressive dementia. It is the most common
form of dementia; and it is incurable and progressive. It is most often
diagnosed in people older than 65 years old, but early-onset can occur.
the fact that the presentation of dementia is different in each
individual, there are common symptoms, such as early observable
"age-related" concerns such as difficulties in making new memories as
well as recalling recently participated/observed events.
Alzheimer progresses, one can note symptoms such as confusion,
aggression, mood swings, communication problems, long term and short
term memory loss, as well as a progressive withdrawal of participation
as their senses decline. Individual prognosis are difficult to assess
and determined, and it can progress undetected for years.
exactly causes it and it to progress or regress are not totally
understood by the medical community. Because it cannot be cured and is
degenerative in nature, the management of the disease and patients are
very important. The role of the main caregiver is often undertaken by
the spouse of a close family member; the burden is often very great on
caregivers and families, impacting on social, psychological, economic
and physical stress on them.
The role of
physiotherapy in this disease, is to maintain or improve the level of
mobility and function of the patient's physical abilities. The role of
the occupational therapist is to maintain and/or improve the mental
ability, capacity and awareness, to participate in daily activities such
as socialization, self care and others.
We do take
care of several nursing homes (the rehabilitative aspect), and we can
help plan or provide respite care for you or your family should you
require any help. Patients who have dementia can be managed well with
good education and training.
