Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Care
Most patients with Alzheimer’s disease have a primary caregiver—often a family member—who is crucial to ensuring appropriate care for your family with dementia. … Many caregivers report elevated levels of stress, which can contribute to illness. Nearly 40 percent suffer from depression. Sovereign Ease Caregiver & Nursing Care is understood all the family’s situations. Sovereign Ease is there for you.

First, let’s be clear on these few points:
As with most chronic conditions, the development of dementia can’t be neatly broken down into categories and discrete points. This means one may not personally experience some of the sign and symptoms. Dementia is a unique disorder and affects everyone differently. There is no set pattern to anticipate. The signs and symptoms outlined within this guide as early (mild), middle (moderate), and late (severe) stage dementia are not absolute indicators of that stage. Here is an illustration, if a diagnosis is early dementia but symptoms relate to those listed as middle stage, this does not mean the condition has progressed. Be sure to discuss with your health care provider if you have questions or concerns about a diagnosis. Let your physician know about any changes; simple medication or lifestyle adjustments can make a significant difference.
