What is the difference between Alzheimer's and dementia?

Alzheimer's is a degenerative brain disease caused by changes in the brain and cell damage. Over time the symptoms gradually worsen. The early sign to look for in Alzheimer's is memory loss. Being able to remember new information will become difficult. Other signs of Alzheimer's include disorientation, confusion, and changes in behavior.


Alzheimer's is the most common cause of dementia and may result from a unique global brain injury. Dementia is defined as a decline in mental ability that interferes with activities of daily living (ADLs). Thinking, memory, and reasoning are affected by dementia. Memory loss, trouble with speaking and writing, trouble planning or solving problems, being confused about the time or where you are, changes in mood and personality are signs of dementia. Memory loss is the most common indicator of dementia.

Stages of dementia

  • Memory loss: misplacing items and forgetting recently learned information, conversations, names, etc.

  • Disorientation to time: difficulty remembering the day of the week

  • Speech impairments: trouble finding words

  • Impaired sense of direction: difficulty holding directional capabilities and "being lost" in a familiar place or location

  • Decision-making impairment: difficulties with typical decision-making, use of poor judgment, or even typical organizational skill impairment

Memory Care

Caring for seniors with Alzheimer's or dementia is one of the most significant health care issues we face today, and many families aren't sure whom to turn to when faced with this dilemma. This can be a lot for family members who take on the caregiver role. Home care allows seniors with Alzheimer's or dementia to stay in the comfort and familiarity of their home and stick to their routine.

Memory Care Dressing Assistance

Home Care 4 Seniors strives to make our clients' lives with Alzheimer's and dementia as close to their regular daily routines as possible. To make this goal a reality, our caregivers spend time learning about our client's hygiene schedule, favorite foods, favorite TV shows, and hobbies. Learning about our clients means we can help them recall the things they like to do around the house and how they are used to doing those activities. Many seniors face the troubles of memory loss and can still live comfortably in their own homes.
