Strand Sorg is dedicated to the important and immense task of dementia care
Some people lose their parents or grandparents to dementia before their physical passing. Dementia is a collective name for conditions in which progressive degeneration of the brain affects memory, thinking, behaviour and emotion. While the risk of developing dementia increases dramatically with age, most older people do not develop the condition. It is not an inevitable consequence of getting older.
Dementia is not a normal part of ageing. It knows no social, economic, ethnic or geographical boundaries. Although individuals experience dementia in their own way, eventually those affected are unable to care for themselves and need help with all aspects of daily life. There is currently no cure.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. Alzheimer’s and dementia don’t only affect the person with the disease but have a significant impact on everyone around the person. Taking care of someone with Alzheimer’s and dementia can take a mental, emotional and physical toll. Our caregivers are here to support you and take care of your loved one when the time necessitates.
