What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is a physical disease that affects the brain. The nerve cells are disrupted by ‘plaques’ and ‘tangles’ that develop inside the brain. For people with Alzheimer’s, communication between the nerve cells changes and messages don’t travel around as well as they once would have, and eventually certain cells begin to die.

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive condition. This means symptoms develop over several years. The most common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease include problems with speech, confusion, personality changes and difficulty making decisions.

"My mother in law moved in with us in December 2020, she has dementia and being in a care home during this difficult time had taken its toll on her. From our first home assessment visit to a change in care needs, the Right at Home team have been amazing. I truly do not know what we would do without them. They are always happy, calm and keen to help and advise. With their help, advice and patience, we have become confident carers ourselves. We couldn't ask for better support for us or care for our mum."

Supporting Clients in Guildford and Farnham to live well with Alzheimer’s disease

here is ongoing research into medical treatments for Alzheimers, though there is no known cure. Learn more about the research being undertaken by one of our charity partners: Alzheimer’s Society.

Right at Home Guildford and Farnham continues to help Clients to live well with Alzheimer’s and dementia through quality care and support. All of our Guildford and Farnham-based CareGivers complete dementia-specific training as part of their induction programme. As a result, our specialist CareGivers know how to develop personalised care plans to manage the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and even slow the progression of the condition. 

Alzheimer’s usually starts with memory loss, as well as losing the ability to find the right words, solve problems or make decisions. As the disease progresses and memory loss, communication skills and orientation gets worse, people with Alzheimer’s disease will need some level of care during their day to day lives. The level of care at home may start at just one hour a day, for reassurance. Alzheimer's care plans may eventually progress into 24-hour care as the disease deteriorates.

Why is Alzheimer’s disease care important? 

Alzheimer’s disease can impact a person’s mood, daily activities and hobbies. The condition can have a major impact on everyday life, making small tasks very challenging. As Alzheimer’s disease progresses, sufferers may begin to forget appointments or lose important items, like their keys or wallet. It’s important to keep an eye on any signals that the condition may be worsening.  

Alzheimer’s can cause difficulties not only for the person who has dementia but also those close to them. If you recognise that a family member has developed symptoms or is finding tasks are becoming a challenge, encourage them to consult their GP.

FAQs about our Alzheimer’s homecare in Guildford and Farnham

What is the difference between dementia and Alzheimer's?

In short, Alzheimer’s is a singular type of dementia. 

Dementia is not a specific disease itself, but rather a term used to describe a group of associated symptoms. This can include memory loss and difficulty with concentration. 

Whereas Alzheimer’s disease is a specific medical condition that disrupts the brain’s nerve endings and how they communicate with one another. 

There are many stages of dementia with different symptoms associated with each. People with Alzheimer’s will also experience various stages of the progressive disease. 

At Right at Home Guildford and Farnham, we offer a range of support services for people living with dementia and Alzheimer’s. Please get in touch with us to find out more information.

How long does each stage of Alzheimer's last?

There is no set time frame for how long it will take to progress between each stage of Alzheimer’s disease. The rate of progression depends on the person and their own individual medical situation.

However, as the disease is fairly common, we can anticipate an average for how long each stage lasts: 

Stage of Alzheimer's

Average Length of Time

Early Stage (Mild)

2 - 4 Years

Middle Stage (Moderate)

2 - 10 Years

Late Stage (Severe)

1 - 3 Years

If you are unsure what to expect for each stage of Alzheimer’s, talk to your GP or a healthcare professional for advice. 

What is the cost of care for Alzheimer’s in Guildford and Farnham?

The cost of our in-home Alzheimer's care depends on the unique requirements of the Client. All of our Guildford and Farnham-based homecare services are tailored to your needs, so we can’t suggest an average cost until we have discussed your specific care plan.
