A Wisconsin Dementia Care Facility Discusses 3 Signs of Dementia, Freedom, Wisconsin

Every year, 47.5 million people worldwide are diagnosed with dementia. This shocking number illustrates just how important it is to have quality dementia care resources available to those afflicted with this devastating condition. Country Villa Assisted Living is a dementia care facility with locations in Freedom and Pulaski, WI. Below, their experts discuss three signs of dementia in the elderly.

3 Signs Of Dementia

1. Memory Loss

memory-care-WIBy far the most common symptom of dementia is memory loss. This is not forgetting little things here and there, which is just a typical part of growing older. Dementia involves a more pronounced type of memory loss, such as regular difficulty with short-term memory, forgetting where things are located, and not remembering appointments and plans.

2. Trouble With Speech

In the early stages of dementia, many struggle with their speech. They often report a feeling of seeing and knowing a certain word, but their mouth cannot make the right sounds to voice that word. If you notice a loved one having trouble with speech when this has not previously been an issue, an appointment with a dementia care specialist may be in order.

3. More Frequent Falls

Those with dementia often have trouble deciphering spatial relationships. They may find it difficult to get around familiar surroundings, such as their own homes or places they visit on a regular basis. Because of this spatial distortion, they may fall or bump into things more frequently. Look for obvious signs of falls, as well as less obvious ones like bruises or cuts and scrapes.

Dementia is a rough road for everyone involved; you and your loved one deserve the peace of mind that comes with compassionate dementia care. Trust the professionals at Country Villa Assisted Living. Call their Freedom location at (920) 422-4620 or dial (920) 422-4629 for their Pulaski office. Visit them on Facebook or Twitter for more information about their services.
