In life, we are often faced with difficult decisions. When you or a loved one discovers that they are suffering from a memory disease, you must make decisions quickly about how their care should be handled.
What type of diseases are memory diseases?
Memory diseases are illnesses that attack the brain and affect the ability to store and recall memories. But, these illnesses do not just remove the happiest times of a person’s life. This removal and destruction of the brain can affect other areas such as their behaviour and reasoning skills. This is why it may start as forgetting familiar faces and becoming angry at nothing. However, these memory issues are not always brought on by disease, they can develop after a head injury or if the brain is starved of oxygen for too long. Signs that your loved one may be suffering from a memory problem include-
Problems with talking and communication
Being disoriented with the time and the place they are in
Having problems with abstract thoughts and thinking
Memory loss that affects their day to day life
Becoming angry and anxious for no apparent reason
Problems performing familiar tasks
These are some issues that may arise from memory issues but everyone is different and will react differently to their illness.
Diseases such as Alzheimer’s can be more unpredictable and we can never be sure what the timeline will be. Memory care in Springwells is tailored to your loved ones needs to help them during this time. We have a large facility and staff who have been trained to help assist with many different stages and types of memory care.
