What is Alzheimer's Disease?
Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative disease that is highly prevalent in seniors today. This progressive brain disease initially manifests itself as minor cognitive problems like forgetfulness, confusion, and difficulty with speech. As the disease progresses to later stages, seniors lose their ability to perform key functions like:
- recognizing loved ones
- feeding themselves
- swallowing food
- controlling bladder & bowels
- standing and walking
A senior's minor cognitive problems that mark the early stages of Alzheimer's disease gradually worsen during the mid-stages of the brain disorder. During late stages of the disease, major cognitive problems develop and the senior may lose his or her ability to perform key functions or activities for daily living. Although there is no Alzheimer's cure, patients in early to mid stages can enjoy a quality of life.

What Services Do Memory Care Living Communities in New Jersey Provide for Alzheimer's?
It is important to remember that Alzheimer's can be very hard on friends and family members who provide assistance during even the earliest stages of the disease. Many home caregivers report an increase in sadness, depression, high levels of stress and an increase in their own health problems. With the support of a professionally trained staff, seniors with Alzheimer's have the opportunity to enjoy good years of living and interaction with others. Today, Alzheimer's is well managed with the newer medications and medical researchers are working double time with an ambitious goal of finding a cure for the devastating disease. Alzheimer's memory care living facilities offer numerous enrichment programs tailored for residents in all stages. Moreover, all senior care facilities that we recommend are secured properties with layouts that support the resident's need to wander.
The staff at Fox Trail Memory Care Living are very friendly and professional. They are very attentive to all of mom's dietary restrictions. I have sat in on some of the activities and was impressed with the house involvement. They work hard to get all residents involved in daily activities. With increased activities I have seen a decrease in mom's depression. I give all the credit for my mom's happiness to Fox Trail.
