What is the difference between Dementia and Alzheimers?

Dementia is caused by a range of diseases that affect the brain function, by causing a loss of nerve cells. Dementia is the overall term used to describe the symptoms that impact memory loss, personality changes, communication capabilities and ability to perform day to day activities. People are able to have more than one type of dementia, known as mixed dementia.

Whereas Alzeihmers is a specific type of dementia, Alzeihmers is the most common form of dementia. Alzeihmers is the loss in memory and cognitive functions as the chemicals between the nerve cells in the brain are lost

Although no treatment is currently available for those living with dementia, the above proposals show hope that treatment is possible. At Guardian Carers we understand that often the worst part of growing older, particularly when living with dementia or Alzheimer’s, can be the loneliness and restrictions. Our registered carers are highly trained and will do everything possible to make your life easier: whether that’s helping with the household chores, taking you to see friends and family, or even just chatting over a cup of tea.
