Dementia / Alzheimers

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive and degenerative brain disorder that affects memory, thinking, and behaviour. It is the most common cause of dementia, a general term for a decline in cognitive function severe enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's disease is characterised by the buildup of abnormal protein deposits in the brain, called plaques and tangles, that damage and eventually kill nerve cells. Symptoms of Alzheimer's disease can vary but typically include gradual memory loss, difficulty with language, disorientation, mood and behaviour changes, and loss of motivation. As the disease progresses, individuals with Alzheimer's may have difficulty with daily activities, such as eating, dressing, and communicating. At Patient Handling, we offer a range of products that can assist with a number of these conditions to enable independent living and the best quality care.

Dementia / Alzheimers

Dementia is the term for a group of specific symptoms, not one specific disease. These symptoms can affect an individual’s thought, behaviour and capacity to complete daily tasks. There are many forms of dementia, each caused by different disorders that affect the brain. In general, dementia is more common after 65 years of age, however, can affect anyone at any age and is not a normal part of the aging process.

Dementia is not commonly inherited however some causes of the disease may be.  Many aids are available to assist with the completion of daily tasks and enable the individual to remain independent for as long as possible. The support of families, friends and carers is invaluable and will also enable the individual to manage their dementia with an increased quality of life.
