Aging in Place with Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias

Older adults who have not been formally diagnosed with dementia may fear that they have it – and those who are diagnosed are often terrified. The stigma of dementia can have a devastating effect on anyone’s quality of life, and researchers have begun to uncover links between dementia and anxiety. Both dementia and anxiety, in fact, can affect your ability to age in place.

Alzheimer’s, a degenerative brain disease, is the most common form of dementia. Dementia itself is not a specific disease. The word is a general term for loss of memory and other mental abilities that are significant enough to interfere with everyday life. While Alzheimer’s represents 60 to 80% of diagnosed cases, there are many types of dementia–and all result from physical changes in the brain.
