Thanksgiving brought time to reflect and give thanks to the staff, clients, and families who have been a part of our long history in the Houston area. As autumn says goodbye and the winter season approaches, here at Cameo Caregivers we find warmth and gratefulness in the generous hearts of our caregivers and look forward to what December brings us. We are excited to have the opportunity to share new and important information with each and every one of you!
Alzheimers Awareness Month
As November comes to an end, don’t forget to truly learn what exactly Alzheimer’s is and what it’s like living with it. Learn the facts here: Alz.org.
Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia.
Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss that affects thinking and behavior, and other intellectual abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer’s disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming sever enough to interfere with daily tasks.

Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging.
Although the greatest known risk factor is increasing age, and the majority or people with Alzheimer’s is not just a disease of old age. Up to 5 percent of people with the disease have early onset Alzheimer’s (also known as younger-onset), which often appears when someone is in their 40s or 50s.

Alzheimer’s has no current cure, but treatments for symptoms are available and research continues.
Although current Alzheimer’s treatments cannot stop Alzheimer’s from progressing, they can temporarily slow the worsening of dementia symptoms and improve quality of life for those with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. Today, there is a worldwide effort under way to find better ways to treat the disease, delay its onset, and prevent it from developing.
