Alzheimer’s is a neurological disease that generally occurs in older adults, and it can cause memory loss and impairment, mood swings, disorientation and other serious problems. Alzheimer’s is an issue that seriously affects not only the person who has been diagnosed with the disorder, but also that person’s loved ones & caregivers. Someone with mid-to-late stage Alzheimer’s requires continuous care and monitoring.
Those in the early stages of Alzheimer ’s disease may suffer from:
Symptoms of mid and late stage Alzheimer’s include:
- Difficulty performing simple tasks progressing to being completely unable to perform tasks
- Speech, and reading & writing skills worsen until they are lost
- Memory problems worsen
Many of the issues caused by Alzheimer ’s disease can be addressed and managed through therapy. This will be determined after a full assessment has been completed by one of our trained counsellors. Call Insight Psychological today to see how we can help you or your loved one!
