Dementia & Alzheimers
Worldwide, at least 44 million people are living with Dementia, making the Disease a Global Health Crisis that must be addressed.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of Dementia, an overall term for conditions that occur when the brain no longer functions properly. Alzheimer’s causes problems with memory, thinking and Behavior. In the early stage, Dementia symptoms may be minimal, but as the disease causes more damage to the brain, symptoms worsen.
A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s is life changing for the person with the disease, as well as their family and friends, however information and support are available. No one has to face Alzheimer’s disease or another Dementia alone.
Coming to terms with this illness is difficult for both those affected by it together with their loved ones. Calling on support for a loved one is one of the toughest decisions you’ll be required to do.
To this end Akina Mama Memory Care has positioned itself to care for those in need by establishing two facilities in the communities of Lyttleton & Lyttleton Manor, Pretoria.
