Dementia is a loss of brain function that occurs with certain diseases. It affects memory, thinking, language, judgment, and behavior.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors:

Most types of dementia are nonreversible (degenerative). Nonreversible means the changes in the brain that are causing the dementia cannot be stopped or turned back. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia. There's no cure yet, but the good news is that there is a growing evidence that some kinds of mental exercise can help!

Because of the intensity of care involved, it is often difficult for a loving family to provide all the "round the clock" care that your loved ones would need. Dementia Care Aides bridges this gap. Whether you need few hours a day/week or 24 hours live-in, we can provide you with a customized care from our aides who understand the disease for optimal care, safety and peace of mind.

Types of Dementia:
  • Dementia of the Alzheimer's Type

    • Approximately 50 percent of all cases of dementia are caused by Alzheimer's disease.


  • Vascular Dementia

    • Vascular dementia is cause by small strokes that stop blood flow to parts of the brain.


  • Dementia Due to Other General Medical Conditions

    • Medical conditions that can cause dementia include HIV, head trauma, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, Pick's disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, metabolic disorders, and hypoglycemia.


  • Substance-Induced Persisting Dementia

    • The use of a substance such as alcohol or the sudden withdrawal from a substance can cause dementia. This is diagnosed only if the symptoms last beyond normal withdrawal time for the substance.


  • Dementia Not Otherwise Specified

    • This is the category for dementia that doesn't fit in an above category.

Possible Early signs of Dementia:

    Early Warning Signs:

  • Recent memory loss that impairs the person's ability to complete routine assignments at work and/or function effectively at home: May frequently forget names, phone numbers and work tasks and have trouble remembering them even when reminded.


  • Problems with language: May progressively forget simple words, substitute inappropriate words, and/or make statements that don't make sense.


  • Disorientation in time and space and getting confused or lost in a familiar place: May leave their home and then forget where they intended to go, could become lost on a nearby street and not know how to get home.


  • Difficulty completing familiar tasks: May, for example, prepare a meal but forget to serve it--or even forget that they ever made it.


  • Distorted judgment: May dress inappropriately, completely forget what they've set out to do mid-task, or forget key routine tasks, such as keeping set appointments or caring for their pet.


  • Problems with abstract thinking: May have trouble with simple mathematical calculations such as balancing a checkbook or remembering a familiar, often-used phone number.


  • Misplacing things: May put things in inappropriate places, such as putting their keys in the microwave, toothbrush in the kitchen cabinet, or their briefcase in the refrigerator.


  • Repeated and sudden changes in mood and behavior: May begin exhibiting out-of-character rapid mood swings for no apparent reason.


  • Changes in personality: May start to act in ways that are counter to their usual personality style, for example, acting suspicious, fearful, or confused.


  • Loss of initiative to do things: May become passive, unresponsive, express little interest in previously enjoyed activities and require real encouragement to get involved.

“Dementia Care Adies taking care of my Mother above and beyond the standards.”

We would like to make Demencia Care Aides Inc aware of what an extraordinary caregiver Nati is. She is extremely diligent and hardworking and take her job very seriously. She is always caring, kind, and gentle. We are happy with the way she treats our father, like family, with respect and humor. We consider ourselves very lucky that Nati was assigned to the night shift on our dad's case. Our father can get confused during the night and it is very clear to us that he feels calm and safe with Nati. We are happy that Nati is part of Dad's care team.

Thank you,

Bev & Dot

To Robin,

My name is JM, I am a patient of your agency. I wanted you to know my aide, Tatiana, has been so terrific. It's hard for me to ask or accept help, and have someone I don't know in my home. From the beginning I've been so lucky to have gotten Tatiana as my aide. She is not only professional, but extremely caring and kind. She truly goes out of her way for me and is so helpful.

I've had quite a few aides through my life and I consider myself thankful to have her here with me. I feel safe when she's here and she always has a way of making me smile, even when I'm having a bad day.

Your company is so fortunate to have her working there, and that makes me very lucky. I'm more than grateful to have her here. I just wanted you to know how special she is, she's a hard worker and always smiling. Thank you for sending her to me and for your help whenever I have a question. 

— JM, Babylon, NY.
