What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s is a physical condition that affects the brain. The nerve cells are disrupted by ‘plaques’ and ‘tangles’ that build up 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 the cells die.

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

"I changed to Right at Home in April 2021 to care for my mother who has Vascular Dementia. From day one they have been fantastic, I now feel happy that I can go out and my mum is fully taken care of, they go above all expectations and previous experience with another care provider. All carers who attend have now learnt how Mum works and Mum looks forward to their visit."

Supporting Clients in Wimbledon, Putney and Kingston 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. Read about the research being undertaken by one of our charity partners: Alzheimer’s Society.

Right at Home Wimbledon, Putney and Kingston continues to help Clients to live well with Alzheimer’s and dementia through quality care and support. All of our CareGivers complete dementia-specific training as part of their induction programme. As a result, our specialist CareGivers in Wimbledon, Putney and Kingston know how to develop suitable 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 everyday lives. The level of care at home may start at just one hour a day, for reassurance, and progress into 24-hour a day care as the disease develops.

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 huge 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 doctor.

FAQs about our Alzheimer’s homecare in Wimbledon, Putney and Kingston

What is the difference between dementia and Alzheimer's?

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

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

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 Wimbledon, Putney and Kingston, 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 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.

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 Wimbledon, Putney and Kingston?

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