Understanding Memory Care vs. Assisted Living

While assisted living facilities provide excellent care for seniors who solely need additional care and support, if your loved one is suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's, memory care is a specialized facility that is able to care for these disorders. Memory care works with each patient to address their memory related illness as well as other factors that affect the illness, such as nutrition, exercise, cognitive function, and more.

Recognizing the Signs of Dementia

Some of the most common signs and symptoms of dementia include:

  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty communicating or understanding language
  • Disorientation and confusion
  • Inability to recognize certain objects
  • Mood swings

Distinguishing Dementia from Alzheimer's Disease

It's not uncommon for people outside of the medical world to use dementia and Alzheimer's interchangeably. While they share many of the same symptoms, dementia and Alzheimer's are starkly different. The main thing to recognize is that Alzheimer's is actually a disease whereas dementia isn't. Instead, dementia refers to a series of symptoms that have a large impact on memory, the ability to communicate effectively, and the ability to perform daily activities. Therefore, Alzheimer's is one of the most common causes of dementia.

Additionally, while Alzheimer's is a disease, dementia is often the result of disease(s). For example, people with Huntington's disease and Parkinson's disease commonly develop dementia following their inititial diagnoses.

The Progressive Stages of Dementia Explained

  1. Stage 1: People with no dementia diagnosis and no mental or physical symptoms of dementia are considered stage 1.
  2. Stage 2: There is normal forgetfulness that can be characterized as normal signs of aging. You may notice some level of forgetfulness, but dementia symptoms are still not highly apparent.
  3. Stage 3: Also known as mild cognitive impairment (MCI), stage 3 dementia will show increased forgetfulness, decreased performance at work, speech difficulty, and difficulty focusing on everyday tasks.
  4. Stage 4: Also known as moderate cognitive decline, this stage usually lasts around 2 years. The cognitive issues can be detected during an exam. Individuals in stage 4 have difficulty concentrating, can forget recent events, have difficulty managing finances and difficulty traveling alone. It is also common in this stage to have difficulty socializing.
  5. Stage 5: This stage is where mid-stage dementia starts. The dementia symptoms will become very easy to identify and the individual will need help completing daily living activities. Short-term memory will be mostly lost and confusion and forgetfulness will be more pronounced throughout activities of daily living.
  6. Stage 6: In stage 6, a person with dementia can start forgetting the names of family and friends. They may also have little memory of recent events. Communication is severely disabled and delusions, compulsions, anxiety, and agitation may occur.
  7. Stage 7: This is the last stage where very severe cognitive decline lasts an average of 2.5 years. A person in this stage usually has no ability to speak or communicate and requires assistance with most activities, including walking.
