Alzheimer’s care and dementia care are often treated as the same thing. But that’s not necessarily true. While Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia, it’s not the only one.
Other forms of dementia include conditions such as vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. These conditions share a number of symptoms to Alzheimer’s, but they also come with unique challenges. Each type of dementia has a different cause. This leads to varying symptoms and causes them to progress in differing ways.
According to research carried out by the Alzheimer’s Society, 1 in 6 people over the age of 80 have dementia in Spain and the figures are predicted to rise.
Dementia is commonly mistaken as a condition. However, it’s an umbrella term that is used to describe a common set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. A person with dementia may also experience mood or behavioural changes. These changes can be small initially but increasingly can affect daily life.
However, dementia doesn’t mean someone is unable to do things for themselves but rather they just need some extra support, to help them adapt and learn how to live with dementia.
