1 in 10 Singaporeans aged 60 and above suffers from dementia, the most common types of which are Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. Contrary to what some may think, Dementia is not a part of normal ageing. It is not just memory loss, it is a medical condition where brain cells die faster. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, diagnosis of dementia occurs when a person displays memory impairment and problems with cognition that can impact occupational and social functions.
Because of this, it takes a physical and emotional toll on both caregiver and care recipient. As dementia progresses, each stage requires different care plans. The middle stages of dementia make routine tasks difficult which requires more specialized attention while later stages would need support with activities of daily living, such as bathing and toileting.
As such, taking on the caregiving role for a family member with Alzheimer's disease or dementia is difficult especially when you try to do it alone. Red Crowns Caregivers are here to be with you every step of your caregiving journey. From live-in caregiver support to professional nursing services and night respite care, our caregiver Singapore can ease both your loved one's and your own caregiving experience.
