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, the  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 difficulty making decisions, problems with speech, personality changes and confusion.  

Supporting Clients in Reigate & Crawley 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 partner: Alzheimer’s Society.

At Right at Home Reigate & Crawley, we offer quality care and support to help Clients to live well with Alzheimer’s and dementia. All of our Reigate & Crawley-based CareGivers complete dementia-specific training as part of their induction programme. As a result, our specialist CareGivers know how to develop 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 suitable 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 develops.

Contact our team in Reigate & Crawley to discuss your unique circumstances. 

Why is Alzheimer’s disease care important?

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.  

Alzheimer’s disease can impact a person’s mood, daily activities and hobbies . Dementia and Alzheimer’s can have a large 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.

FAQs about our Alzheimer’s homecare in Reigate & Crawley

What is the difference between dementia and Alzheimer's?

In short, Alzheimer’s is a singular 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 Reigate & Crawley, we offer a range of support services for people living with dementia and Alzheimer’s. Please get in touch with our team in Reigate & Crawley to find out more about Alzheimer’s homecare.

How long does each stage of Alzheimer's last?

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 person 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.

Or consider joining local community support groups in Reigate & Crawley, like the Still Me Dementia Community.

What is the cost of care for Alzheimer’s?

The cost of our in-home Alzheimer's care will all vary based on the individual needs of the Client. All of our Reigate & Crawley-based homecare services are tailored to your needs, so we can’t suggest an average cost until we have discussed your care plan.
