After calling around aimlessly for help following my dad's heart surgery, I was so relieved to be referred to Home Care Assistance. The team at Home Care immediately answered her cell phone and treated me like a VIP client (not the annoyed comparative shopper that I was)! Someone visited my dad's house the very same day for an assessment. She treated my dad respectfully and like a friend, and she correctly remembered every detail about his surgery that I'd previously rattled off over the phone. We couldn't have been more grateful for the 5-star process of the company and the professionalism and care of its staff. I would highly recommend Home Care Assistance to anyone.

Millions of Americans are in need of quality home care services, but many are not aware of how these services can improve their quality of life. Home cargivers have the skills neccessary to determine specific needs and tailor their services accordingly. Knowing how these services can improve your quality of life, or the life of a beloved parent or grandparent, is the first step towards making the right choice for your family.

Caregiver for your loved ones in the comfort of their own house in Atlanta Georgia

The primary benefit of this type of care is that it is able to take place in the home of the individual. This helps to increase their level of comfort and familiarity with their surroundings. One of the biggest complaints of those facing health issues is fearing having to live in a nursing home or assisted living facility. These services keep your loved one in their home for as long as possible.

Senior Care Marietta

One of the biggest segments of the population needing assistance, but not receiving it, are the elderly.

Elderly Care Sandy Springs

It can difficult or impossible for family members to be there at all times. Having a quality caregiver that understands their needs helps them to continue to have independence that they desire.

Alzheimer's Care

Having a loved one facing Alzheimer's can be extremely stressful, but having a caring professional there for them can help to reduce your anxiety. Knowing that they have the caregiver they need to ensure their safety will give you the peace of mind that you deserve when you can't be there yourself. In home care will increase their comfort and reduce disorientation while allowing them to retain their dignity.

Parkinson's Care

Parkinson's can affect each person differently, but will likely reduce their ability to take care of some of their basic needs. Having someone to prepare meals, help with hygeine and other daily tasks will help them to stay in their home. Most clients report preferring this over other options as they feel most comfortable at home.

Dementia Care

Clients with dementia can face a wide range of challenges. As time goes on, these challenges are likely to change. The best in home caregivers have the ability to identify these changes and assist their patients accordingly. This can also be beneficial for family members who do not have the same level of experience with the disease so that they can provide assistance as needed as well.

Stroke Care

Those recovering from a stroke typically will receive some level of physical therapy in a professional setting immediately after the event. However, there typically is a point in which they would like to return home to continue care on their own. Professionals can help with this by coming to the home and assist them in following doctor's orders. They can also provide the assistance needed while the patient continues towards recovery.

Cancer Care

A professional caregiver can be a great means of support for someone battling or living with cancer. This can include remember medications, ensuring healthy meals and providing physical assistance as needed. Care is tailored around the person's individual needs.

Post Traumatic Brain Injury Care (TBI)

Memory Care

When most people think about dementia, the first term that comes to mind is Alzheimer’s disease. Many people are also familiar with Vascular dementia or Lewy body dementia. But one form of dementia that isn’t on everyone’s lips is a condition called Korsakoff Syndrome. This condition is most commonly the result of excess alcohol intake over a period of years. In other words, while dementia may manifest for multiple reasons, this type of dementia is induced by heavy drinking.

Exploring the Alcohol-Dementia Connection

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that every day around 240 Americans die from alcohol-related causes. That adds up to 88,00 deaths on average, annually.

Widely used and often-abused, many of us know someone whose life has been devastated by alcohol addiction. Besides the ravages of addiction, over-consumption can lead to heart disease, liver problems, numerous cancers, and a weakened immune system, to name just a few.

Alcohol can cause brain damage, killing off brain cells faster than they can regenerate. For some unfortunate souls, too much elbow bending paves the way for serious memory problems, including dementia.

Korsakoff Syndrome: A Little Known, Big-Time Problem

Korsakoff Syndrome belongs to a family of disorders known as Alcohol-related brain damage (ARBD). Simply put, ARBD may happen when someone over-indulges in adult beverages over a course of years.

Korsakoff syndrome (KS) is specifically related to an extreme deficiency of vitamin B-1, which is also known as thiamine. While there can be other causes, Korsakoff syndrome typically results from alcohol abuse.

Thiamine plays a vital role in helping brain cells create energy. Without enough thiamine, the brain is unable to produce the energy that’s necessary for someone to function efficiently.

Signs and Symptoms of Korsakoff Syndrome

Korsakoff syndrome causes chronic memory loss. People living with KS find it difficult to handle day-to-day activities. If your loved one has KS, you might see them struggle with learning something new. You may also notice changes in their personality, or see them become apathetic about things they once cared about.

It is also not uncommon for people with the disorder to make something up and present it as the truth. Just know that this is not intentional, but that their brains are trying to make sense of memory gaps. They are not consciously making things up. Doctors call this behavior confabulation.

Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome: a Tragic One-Two Punch

Korsakoff syndrome has a common precursor called Wernicke encephalopathy (WE). Wernicke encephalopathy is a severe brain reaction to dangerously low thiamine levels. WE is a four-alarm emergency that erupts into a potentially fatal failure of brain function. Symptoms may include coordination problems, involuntary eye movements, confused thinking, and trouble walking.

Following an episode of WE, people may develop Korsakoff syndrome and its ongoing memory problems. Due to the close connection between the two disorders, many clinicians refer to it as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (WKS). However, there is no consensus on whether WKS is made up of two distinct disorders, or different aspects of the same condition.

We’ll leave these distinctions to the researchers. What there is agreement on is that WKS is characterized by thought-processing issues and nervous system changes. Failing timely intervention, it can cause irreversible brain damage, and even death.

How to Spot Alcohol Abuse in Seniors

One reason it’s hard to spot alcohol abuse in seniors is that the symptoms of drinking problems closely resemble the challenges of aging. That’s why it’s often hidden or glossed over. “Oh, I know mom has an extra glass of wine these days, but she’s had a lot to cope with lately. Anyway, it’s normal for a person her age to seem a bit confused from time to time.”

On the other hand, please consider this fact: Some experts believe that more than half of senior citizens who’ve received acute hospital care are abusing alcohol. There are also the somewhat cynical outlooks that A) mom or dad won’t be around much longer, or B) that elderly people can’t be successfully treated for alcoholism.

But when you love a parent, you’ll do everything in your power to keep them as safe and healthy as possible, right? Please keep your eyes peeled for these signs of aging that might also indicate a possible alcohol issue:

  • Disorientation
  • Frequent falling
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Slurred their speech or confusion
  • Lack of appetite or potential malnourishment
  • Inability to take care of themselves the way they used to

In addition, be on the lookout for clear signs of heavy drinking:

  • Drinking more often
  • Breath smelling of alcohol
  • Drinking when alone
  • Becoming irritated when you bring up how much they are drinking

Stop Alcohol-Related Dementia Before it’s too Late

There are some impacts of aging that can’t be helped. But trying to prevent your loved one from developing alcohol-related brain damage – or getting help if it’s already developed – is something that’s within our power to accomplish! What can you do right now to give your loved one the opportunity to live a longer, healthier, more satisfying life?
