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.

We used Accuaid Care Services for four weeks, five hours a day, five days a week, and it was the same person coming every time. Services include cleaning my sister, incontinence care, oral hygiene, showering, and feeding her because she's bedridden. It was just a little bit more money than we were hoping to spend.

We have hired Accuaid Care Services. They're doing very well. The person whothey send out is a super good fit. She takes my husband walking every day. If need be, she will run errands for him. She is very pleasant. One time I used her for a whole week, so it was a lot of hours but she was great. They're very helpful. Since I'm a psychotherapist and I have people changing appointments, it is great that I can call her at the last minute. In fact, this last Thursday, the caregiver came and I said, 'Could you stay an extra three hours because I have had some other people show up,' and she called me and stayed. They're very flexible. Accuaid Care Services is great. I'm very pleased.

Accuaid Care Services was able to find us a caregiver after a couple of days. The caregiver is pretty good, but there was a day when she was sick and they didn’t have a backup. They provide basic custodial help, getting up and going to the bathroom, feeding, preparing things and so on. The agency handles my requests efficiently, and the billing is good and easy.

Accuaide Services were brought in by Charitable Hospice to help me with my Mom. I met with [name removed] from Accuaide and she sent over [name removed] to help clean and do Moms laundry. We love having Martha. She is so personable and does an excellent job. I highly recommend using them. They have helped me immensely with her in taking off a lot of the load.

I am very impressed with the care and creativity of [name removed]. She goes above and beyond for her clients. [name removed] works with my brother, who is somewhat self sufficient with managing his health, wellbeing and finances. She is patient, kind and above all she cares about her performance and his needs. She is of the highest character; I trust her to let me know when additional attention is needed and that she is helping him life his live on his terms. She is God sent for me because I don't worry if he's hungry, cold or hurt. She diligently goes to his apartment and work and has even followed him on a bus. She is tenacious and gets the job done. I am so grateful to have her in our life; thank you [name removed] for suggesting her for the job. She is perfect for our needs.

I Highly Recommend!! Our mom had a stroke and our father has dementia but they both insist on remaining in their life long home. We were referred to accuaid In-home care by a friend and very glad we listened. Their management and all caregivers have gone above and beyond our expectations. They continued the physical therapy routine for mom right away, and they do memory games/tasks with dad. Both have higher spirits when we visit now. Very happy with their care.

By far the BEST agency we have hired. My father has Parkinson’s and it kept getting worse. Ever since I hired Accuaid Care, his Parkinson’s has gotten so much better. He is taking his meds on time, exercising every day, enjoying time with his caregivers and making it to every Doctor’s appointment. My family and I are so grateful for their help. Now when I go to Texas to visit my dad, he is HAPPY and I get to actually spend time with him instead of having to take him to the doctor and run a thousand errands.

I am so grateful for 24 hour service Accuaid care offers. They responded in minutes to my call on a Saturday afternoon. They had {name removed} on site within 4 hours. She rolled up her sleeves and got right to work creating order and comfort to my family in need. The supervisor was attentive to both family and client needs and went above and beyond with reassuring phone contact. {name removed}

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.
