Dementia is a chronic or persistent disorder of the mental processes caused by brain disease or injury and marked by memory disorders, personality changes, and impaired reasoning.
The term ‘Dementia’ is used to cover many different conditions that affect the brain. The Alzheimer’s Society estimate there are over 100 different conditions that fall under the dementia umbrella.
Dementia can have strong effects on the following abilities:
Memory, Thinking, Orientation, Reasoning, Communication etc.
As dementia can affect day-to-day memory and orientation, having a routine is so important. This is why, here at Clarity Homecare we strongly believe that seeing a friendly and familiar face on every visit is essential.
