About BrightStar Care South Minneapolis

It can be heartbreaking to suspect or learn that your loved one has Alzheimers or dementia. As you begin to think about ways to keep them healthy, safe and happy, it may feel overwhelming, but you can turn to BrightStar Home Care Burnsville / South St Paul for guidance.

The First Signs

Alzheimers disease is a neurological disorder that often begins slowly with mild symptoms that gradually advance. Although some memory loss or changes in function are normal as we age, if symptoms move quickly or become more frequent, it could potentially indicate the onset of Alzheimers or another form of dementia.

Here are some things to watch out for:

The inability to remember words, details, directions, people and events.  Difficulty performing simple tasks (such as nutrition, personal hygiene or grooming)

Depression or lack of motivation

Forgetfulness and confusion

Uncharacteristic irritability

Poor decision making or judgment

Its also important to note that those who have Alzheimers may be at a greater risk of falling or accidentally injuring themselves.
