Alzheimer’s and Dementia: What’s the difference?

These terms are often used interchangeably, but they actually have different meanings. Dementia is not a specific disease. It’s an umbrella term that describes a wide range of symptoms. These symptoms affect people’s ability to perform everyday activities on their own. Common symptoms of dementia include

  • A decline in memory
  • Changes in thinking skills
  • Poor judgment and reasoning skills
  • Decreased focus and attention
  • Changes in language
  • Changes in behavior

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia, but it’s not the only one. There are many different types and causes of dementia, including:

  • Lewy body dementia
  • Frontotemporal dementia
  • Vascular dementia
  • Limbic-predominant age-related TDP-43 encephalopathy
  • Chronic traumatic encephalopathy
  • Parkinson’s disease dementia
  • Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease
  • Huntington’s disease
  • Mixed dementia

While dementia is a general term, Alzheimer’s disease is a specific brain disease. It is marked by symptoms of dementia that gradually get worse over time. Alzheimer’s disease first affects the part of the brain associated with learning, so early symptoms often include changes in memory, thinking and reasoning skills. As the disease progresses, symptoms become more severe and include confusion, changes in behavior and other challenges.

Symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease 

Depending on the cause of dementia ― and there are many ― some dementia symptoms are reversible. While dementia generally involves memory loss, this symptom alone doesn’t mean that a person has dementia. It’s important to note that some treatable medical conditions can cause dementia symptoms. On the other hand, Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disorder that causes brain cells to degenerate and die. It’s a continuous decline in thinking, and behavioral and social skills, that disrupts a person’s ability to function independently.

  • A decline in memory
  • Changes in thinking skills
  • Poor judgment and reasoning skills
  • Decreased focus and attention
  • Changes in language and communication skills

Treating dementia and Alzheimer’s disease

While there is no cure for most types of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, there are ways to manage symptoms. Medications can be used to manage memory symptoms and other cognitive changes. Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease can be unpredictable and move progressively, so it’s important that those with the diagnosis are prepared to deal with the condition. Exercising regularly, eating well and remaining active in social activities can help the well-being of someone with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Ready to Start Home Care with AccuAid

At AccuAid Care, we know how hard it can be to talk about Alzheimer’s care with family members. We also understand how hard it can be to find the right care provider. So, we’ll do everything we can to make this process as easy for you and your family as possible.
When you call us to ask about Alzheimer’s care for a family member at home, the first thing we do is set up a free consultation. This consultation gives us a chance to learn more about your loved one’s situation, including the symptoms they’re showing, where they live now, and where they need help the most. We will also learn about your loved one’s favorite routines and activities. We will also answer any questions you may have about our services and how we care for people.
After this meeting, we’ll make a personalized care plan and schedule for your loved one’s care that’s very specific. During the planning phase for care, we may talk to your loved one’s doctor to make sure that care is in line with medical directives. We’ll also work closely with your family to make a care schedule that fits the routine of your loved one and makes it easier for you to care for your loved one.
We will also find a compassionate & reliable caregiver for your loved one. Each of our caregivers has been carefully screened and chosen before being placed, and we work hard to make sure that each client has the right caregiver.
