"A masterclass in care. As a family, we were a little dubious when it came to employing help for our 96-year-old mum, but we needn't have been. From the first visit, we were overwhelmed by the team's expertise, professionalism and compassion."

What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is a physical condition 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 nerve cells changes and messages don’t travel around as well as they should. Eventually, certain brain cells start to die.

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

Supporting Clients in Mitcham, Streatham & Dulwich to live well with Alzheimer’s disease

Although there is currently no cure for dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, there is ongoing research into medical and drug treatments. Learn more about the research being undertaken by one of our charity partners: Alzheimer’s Society.

Right at Home Mitcham, Streatham & Dulwich continues to help Clients live well with Alzheimer’s and dementia through quality care and support. All of our Mitcham, Streatham & Dulwich-based CareGivers complete dementia-specific training as part of their induction programme. As a result, our specialist CareGivers are confident in developing personalised care plans to manage and help slow down the symptoms of Alzheimer’s. 

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, people with Alzheimer’s disease will need some level of care during their day to day lives. Over time, memory loss, communication skills and orientation will get worse. The necessary 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.

Contact our team in Mitcham, Streatham & Dulwich to discuss your unique circumstances.

Why is Alzheimer’s disease care important? 

Alzheimer’s disease can impact a person’s mood, daily activities and hobbies. These changes can have a profound impact on everyday life, making small tasks increasingly 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 getting worse.  

Alzheimer’s can cause difficulties not only for the person who has dementia but also for 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 Mitcham, Streatham & Dulwich

What is the difference between dementia and Alzheimer's?

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

Dementia is not a singular condition itself, but rather a term used to describe a group of associated symptoms, such as 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 Mitcham, Streatham & Dulwich, we offer a range of support services for people living with dementia and Alzheimer’s. Please get in touch with our team to find out more about Alzheimer’s homecare in Mitcham, Streatham & Dulwich.

How long does each stage of Alzheimer's last?

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

However, as Alzheimer’s is fairly common, there is 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.
