Dementia – not just Alzheimers

Alzheimers and Dementia are greatly confused and misunderstood by people.  I have often been asked by families: What is the difference between Dementia and Alzheimers; What are the stages of Alzheimers; Is there a cure?  While I am not a doctor, nor do I intend to give medical advice – I do work with individuals who are diagnosed with these conditions – and more importantly, my interaction with the family members has given me a perspective to share.

Alzheimers is the likely diagnosis that people receive – and there are a number of stages as to the illness and effects.  In early stages it may appear to be just a mental lapse or forgotten details.  It is difficult as a family member to see these changes take place and when compounded with a potential health risk for someone living independently – the reality of a move is sometimes daunting. My personal experiences as an Occupational Therapist Assistant now combined with being a professional REALTOR, Senior Real Estate Specialist, all helps to ensure my compassionate service to assist you and your loved ones in making the right real estate and potential living arrangements.
