What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s 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 should, and eventually certain brain cells start to die.

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

"We have been using Right at Home now for over two years and we continue to be impressed. Our aim has always been to keep dad in his own home and the whole team at Right at Home are helping us to do this. To do this we need regular communication from the office and the carers, which we have. We need to feel the confidence, caring, and commitment of all the staff, which we do. Finally, we need to see that dad is happy and cared for, which he is. We cannot thank the team at Right at Home enough for all they’ve done. "

Supporting people in Oxford to live well with Alzheimer’s disease

Although there is sadly 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 our charity partner: Alzheimer’s Society.

Whilst there is sadly no cure, Right at Home Oxford continues to help Clients to live well with Alzheimer’s and dementia through quality care and support. All of our Oxford-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 and even 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 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 necessary level of care at home may start at just one hour a day, for reassurance. Alzheimer's care plans may ultimately progress into 24-hour a day 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 profound 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 look out for any signals that the condition may be getting worse.  

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 Oxford

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. Clients with Alzheimer’s will also experience various stages of the progressive disease. 

At Right at Home Oxford, we offer a range of support services for people living with dementia and Alzheimer’s. Please get in touch with our friendly team to find out more information about our Alzheimer's services in Oxford.

How long does each stage of Alzheimer's last?

Unfortunately, there is no definitive 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 unique medical situation.

However, as the disease 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. 

What is the cost of care for Alzheimer’s in Oxford?

Our in-home Alzheimer's care cost will all depend on the individual needs of the Client. All of our homecare services in Oxford are tailored to your individual needs, so we can’t give an average cost until we have discussed your care plan.
