Understanding Dementia

One in three seniors in the U.S. will die with dementia or Alzheimer’s

Deaths from heart disease, breast and prostate cancer are all down yet deaths from Alzheimer’s have increased steadily over the last two decades.

We all know someone who is suffering from dementia or know someone who has a parent suffering from dementia. Many of us work as caregivers and see the effects of dementia and Alzheimer’s daily. Some of us are experienced with the challenges of taking care of someone with dementia and others of us are new to this, often times, confusing and frustrating disease.

For those of you new to the struggles of working with a patient or loved one with dementia we, at Barrington Behavioral Health and Wellness, have put together a handy reference guide to help educate you on what you can expect from, and how you may help, those suffering from dementia.
