C H | Friend of Client
"We have been employing Right at Home Sutton & Epsom since January to care for a friend in her 90's who has dementia. The team is very well led by the care manager and doing an excellent job on top of the usual personal care, they act as personal assistants to her by organising appointments and any household repairs. Of all the agencies we appointed, Right at Home Sutton & Epsom was the only one to offer this service. Carers are kind, efficient and smart, nothing is ever too much trouble."
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 nerve cells changes and messages don’t travel around as well as they should. Eventually the cells start to die.
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive condition, so symptoms develop over several years. The most common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease include confusion, personality changes, problems with speech and difficulty making decisions.
Supporting Clients in Sutton & Epsom 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.
Whilst there is sadly no cure, Right at Home Sutton & Epsom continues to help Clients to live well with Alzheimer’s and dementia through quality care and support. All of our Sutton & Epsom-based CareGivers complete dementia-specific training as part of their induction programme. As a result, our specialist CareGivers are confident in developing suitable care plans to manage the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and even slow the progression of the disease.
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 required 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 a day care as the disease develops.

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 more challenging, 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
What is the difference between dementia and Alzheimer's?
In short, Alzheimer’s is a specific type of dementia.
Dementia is not a singular disease 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. Those with Alzheimer’s will also experience various stages of the progressive disease.
At Right at Home, 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?
Unfortunately, there is no certain 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 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.

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