Alzheimer’s disease, the most common cause of dementia, is caused by irregular protein deposits that form plaques and tangles. The damage leads to neuron death and impairs cognitive function, affecting memory, speech, behavior, and reasoning. Symptoms of early Alzheimer’s include confusion, forgetfulness, vision problems, poor judgment, and mood changes. More advanced cases might involve difficulty eating, walking, and communicating. Caregivers for people with Alzheimer’s can help with a daily routine to promote consistency, food preparation, exercise, transportation and create a secure area to prevent wandering, among other basic needs. It is important to set up an advanced directive early on to give your loved one the opportunity to choose an advocate.
