Memory Care Frequently Asked Questions.
Memory loss, whether from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, affects more than just one person. At Aberdeen Heights, we work with individuals, family members and caregivers, searching for the right balance of respect and care. Our thoughtful layout and design reduces confusion and provides complete security around the clock. With special programs designed for those with memory loss, memory support at Aberdeen Heights brings pleasant and peaceful days.
Dementia refers to the loss of cognitive functions (thinking, reasoning, the ability to remember) that are severe enough to interfere with a person’s daily functioning. This group of symptoms is not a disease per se, but may accompany certain diseases or conditions. Dementia is irreversible when caused by disease or certain injuries. It may be partially or fully reversible when caused by drugs, alcohol, depression or imbalances in certain substances, such as hormones or vitamins.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. It is a progressive, degenerative disease of the brain, characterized by loss of function and death of nerve cells in several brain areas, leading to loss of recent memories and new learning first, and eventually old memories, too.
