What Are the Effects of Alzheimer’s & Other Dementia’s on Seniors?

Though perhaps the best known, Alzheimer’s is only one of many degenerative, dementia-related illnesses. Other diseases the present as dementia include vascular dementia, Parkinson’s, Lewy Bodies, Huntington’s Disease, etc. Though a common symptom, memory loss isn’t the only sign that your family member may be experiencing some form of dementia-related illness:

Changes in Hygiene

Many older adults living with dementia may forgo routine hygiene tasks. This may be because it no longer occurs to them that it is important, or because they are now unable to complete the tasks alone or they may be unsure if they’ve already completed them. Regardless of the situation, we’re here to help your family member maintain good personal hygiene in a manner that is agreeable and non-threatening.

Changes in Daily Routine

Cooking, cleaning, going to the bathroom, ascending stairs, etc., are all tasks that may be forgotten as dementia starts to impact normal thought processes. Check for evidence that meals are being prepared, that food is being consumed or discarded. Look for common items being left in uncommon places (keys in the refrigerator, tools in the laundry basket). Confirm that trash is being removed and clothes are getting washed. Fortunately, these are simple tasks that our Atlanta caregivers can help complete.

Easily Confused

Tasks that seem routine can become perplexing as dementia progresses. Operating the microwave or the washer can become challenging. More dangerous, your loved one may forget to put a car in Park or leave food on the stove or in the oven. Rely on our caregivers to partner with you and create a routine that mitigates confusion and promotes security and comfort.

Loss of Basic Motor Skills

As the disease progresses, basic motor skills can be impacted, making it difficult to complete everyday activities. Simple tasks like tying shoelaces or brushing one’s teeth can become frustrating and challenging. You don’t have to navigate this alone with our compassionate professionals on your side.

Our Atlanta caregivers are here to ensure your loved one gets exceptional in-home care and is treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.

About Jean Griswold

Our founder, Jean Griswold, was a care professional who became a visionary entrepreneur when she started the first non-medical home care franchise in the United States while running her own home care business.

Jean started at her dining room table in 1982 in suburban Philadelphia. Her husband, Minister and Doctor Lincoln Griswold, informed her that an elderly woman in their parish had died through the complications associated with malnutrition and dehydration because she had no support system to care for her. Jean was deeply saddened by what she felt was an easily preventable tragedy. She was driven to act.

Jean Griswold was an extraordinary leader. She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1967 at the age of 36 but continued to work actively in her office until she was 79. She published a book, “Fears of the Elderly” in 2013.

Jean was born in New York City. She received a bachelor’s degree in economics and business from Douglass College and a master’s degree in personnel and guidance from Rutgers University. She received an honorary doctorate from Holy Family University in 2006. From 2003 to 2004 she was Entrepreneur in Residence at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She won numerous awards, including the Spirit of Philadelphia Award, the Working Woman’s 2001 Entrepreneur of the Year honor, and the 2002 MS National Achievement Award of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Jean passed away on January 28th, 2017 at the age of 86. She was an inspirational woman and entrepreneur, and despite her passing, her values live on in Griswold Home Care today.
