When you notice memory lapses in an aging parent, it can be frightening and lead you to wonder if they might have dementia.
Below are some of the early signs of dementia.
Mood and Personality Changes
If your older family member is diagnosed with dementia, elderly care is available to help. An elderly care agency can schedule qualified, vetted, and experienced staff members to spend time with your parent to ensure they have what they need and stay safe. Elderly care providers can assist with daily activities of living, like dressing and eating. They can also offer fulfilling activities to prevent boredom, such as arts and crafts, going for walks, and other things.
