Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia. “Dementia” is an umbrella term describing a variety of diseases and conditions that develop when nerve cells in the brain (called neurons) die or no longer function normally. The death or malfunction of neurons can cause changes in one’s memory, behavior, personality, and motor skills.
These brain changes, associated with Alzheimer’s disease, make simple daily tasks such as getting dressed and remembering birthdays difficult. As the disease progresses and becomes more severe, even simple bodily functions such as walking and swallowing become impaired.
This disease creates a need for specialized care during each stage of the process. Haciendas at Grace Village exists to meet these challenges with enthusiasm and offer specialized care to your loved one.
