What Does Alzheimers Disease Have In Common With Multiple Sclerosis?
The progression of alzheimers disease is one of modern days most frightening and frustrating diagnosis ever visited on caring families.
Alzheimers disease takes away the sufferers ability to remember other family members or simple every day tasks that the patient has done thousands of times in the past.
As the disease progresses, the patient may wander away and forget how to get home.
People with Alzheimer’s may become anxious, aggressive and combative. They may forget names of family members and relationships such as wife, brother, or child.
It is a neurological disorder that ongoing studies are trying to understand but have not found a cure.The progression is irrerversable
Confusion,inablility to remember words,coordination problems lack of fine motor skills and the inability to look after themselves for preparing proper diet and bathing.
There are some medications that help with slight memory loss in the early stages, but the disease is an eventual fatal one. This is something the family must deal with and the treatment is not only for the patient but also for the family itself.
The hardships on the family are many. The patient/ family member must be watched constantly or have someone in the home with them. When the patient begins to forget who is with them, becoming agitated or angry the emotional impact on the family as a whole is tiresome and emotionally as well as physically exhausting.
Every area in the United States and abroad has centers that can care for the elderly adult (Eldercare) when the family needs a break. Many families fail to use this center for fear they are not living up to their responsibility.
There are also homes, not unlike a nursing home that are staffed with people trained and specialize in Alzheimer’s disease. There are many books and information available to help a family cope.
The main idea of these books is to learn not to take this disease as a personal insult, as many families do. The patient has not choose to particularly exclude or forget on purpose any one family member, it is just a progression of the disease
