Senior care | November 12, 2021
Nearly 40 percent of people above the age of 65 experience some form of memory loss. For seniors with memory issues, obtaining care while residing in their homes can improve their quality of life. This is true for those with minor memory problems that result from age or for those with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other kinds of memory loss. A familiar atmosphere can reduce uncertainty and enhance mental engagement, and being surrounded by beloved things and memory cues can encourage a sense of connection and peace.
For older adults, some states improve over time and have a notable effect on memory. However, changes in the lifestyle may control memory problems and help seniors continue to remain independent at home with little help from loved ones or a professional caregiver.
Engaging the mind regularly can help older adults continue to live with purpose, connection and joy. To learn how expert caregiving can help seniors stay active, social, and engaged, contact Comfort Keepers® Cambridge office today.
