WOODLAND — This November is time to help raise awareness about one of America’s fastest growing health problems, Alzheimer’s disease. By mid-century the number of people afflicted is expected to triple. The good news is that research, treatments and information are moving in new directions to not only find a cure for Alzheimer’s but also to make life better for those with it. Today there is better support and care, particularly in senior communities like Palm Gardens, which has a special Memory Care living area with apartments, programs and personnel dedicated to those living with Alzheimer’s.

“Our Memory Care area provides our Alzheimer’s and dementia residents with wonderful care where they can enjoy their days with loved ones in a comforting environment designed just for them. The Memory Care area creates a warm and calming place filled with familiar sights, sounds and aromas of days gone by that our residents can thrive in,” said Laura Wayman for Palm Gardens.

Palm Gardens is a community leader in Memory Care that’s changing the way those afflicted with the disease are cared for and supported. With years of Alzheimer’s care experience to draw from, Palm Gardens offers special apartments, an innovative Generations program and constant care for residents with memory loss. Extensively developed by a team of experienced staff, the Generations program provides residents with an engaging lifestyle through compassionate care at the hands of highly trained staff. Each resident’s preferences and life story contribute to his or her individualized care and activities—from daily activities to dining and specialized care by trained staff.

The staff at Palm Gardens wish to share tips about the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.

In November take the opportunity to better understand Alzheimer’s disease. It can affect different people in different ways, but the most common symptom pattern begins with gradually worsening difficulty in remembering new information. This is because disruption of brain cells usually begins in regions involved in forming new memories. As damage spreads, individuals experience other difficulties.

The following are warning signs of Alzheimer’s:
* Memory loss that disrupts daily life
* Challenges in planning or solving problems
* Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work or at leisure
* Confusion with time or place
* Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships
* New problems with words in speaking or writing
* Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps
* Decreased or poor judgment
* Withdrawal from work or social activities
* Changes in mood and personality
