Your Guide to Alzheimer’s Care in Texas

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that causes memory loss and cognitive decline. It is the most common cause of dementia, affecting about 1 in 9 Americans aged 65 or older. Every day, hundreds of Americans are diagnosed with this disease. Caring for a person with Alzheimer’s can be daunting for family members. However, there are scientifically proven tips that can help caregivers and family members help people with dementia live their best lives.

Understanding the Science of Alzheimer’s Disease

The National Institute on Aging identifies three key brain changes in Alzheimer's disease. The first is the presence of protein plaques forming between nerve cells. The second is the development of brain cell tangles. The third is widespread neuron damage, affecting memory, communication, and daily function.

Neurons—essential brain cells that enable thinking, emotions, and daily functioning—decline in people with Alzheimer's. As plaques and tangles harm the brain, memory, communication, and self-care challenges progressively increase. However, with specialized care from dedicated caregivers, quality of life can be preserved, promoting more meaningful days.

Over time, the brain shrinks, usually to approximately one-third of its original size at the disease's end. In the late stage, extensive brain changes impair control over movements, speech, and unconscious functions, such as swallowing. At this point, it may be time to consider compassionate end-of-life hospice care at home.

Alzheimer’s Disease Signs & Symptoms

The risk of developing Alzheimer's disease increases significantly after the age of 65, though it can also affect younger people. The first noticeable change is usually short-term memory loss. In the early stages, people with Alzheimer's disease may also experience:

  • Uncharacteristic behaviors or personality changes
  • Trouble managing finances or paying bills
  • Taking longer to complete familiar tasks
  • More confusion, getting lost, or wandering
  • Repeatedly asking questions
