How Are Dementia & Alzheimer’s Disease Different?

Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are not the same, but they do coincide with one another. One of the biggest differences between the two is that dementia isn’t a disorder on its own; it’s actually a general term used to describe a variety of symptoms. Individuals living with Alzheimer’s can experience symptoms of dementia that slowly worsens over time.

Some of the signs of Alzheimer’s include:

  • Difficulty remembering things
  • Increase confusion
  • Short attention span
  • Problems with language and recalling words
  • Difficulty organizing thoughts
  • Forgetting recent memories or activities
  • Issues coping with new people and situations

This list isn’t all-encompassing, as every person can experience Alzheimer’s disease differently. Most important is that you or a family member seek professional assistance and treatment to help slow the degenerative effects.

When Should You Consider Dementia Care for a Loved One?

As people age, it's not uncommon for their cognitive abilities to decline. For some, this may simply mean that they have a harder time remember names or faces. However, for others, the cognitive decline can be much more significant, impacting their ability to perform daily tasks and live independently. This type of decline is often due to dementia, a degenerative brain disease that can be both devastating and progressively debilitating. If you have an elderly loved one who is showing signs of dementia, it's important to explore your care options. Dementia care focuses on providing assistance with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, and eating. In addition, dementia care providers can help to create a safe and stimulating environment for those with the disease. As the disease progresses, dementia care may also include providing end-of-life care. If you're concerned about your elderly loved one's cognitive abilities, don't hesitate to reach out to a dementia care specialist for guidance.

We Refer Caregivers to Support Those with Memory Loss Conditions

For families that have to watch a loved one’s health decline because of a memory loss condition, you’re not alone. We refer only highly trained caregivers dedicated to delivering the home care your family member deserves.

It's essential to focus on the whole person, not just the disorder. The caregivers we refer will do just that. This means your loved one will get the support needed to live as independently as possible, receiving the respect and compassion required.

You can rely on us to refer you caregivers that provide top-quality Alzheimer’s and dementia care because they:

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.
