What an interesting question, for it concerns some 5.5 million people in the United States. To make matters worse this disease is growing exponentially as our population continues to grow older. It is estimated that by the year 2050 as many as 16 million people could be living with Alzheimer’s; the care cost is estimated to be as high as $1.1 trillion. The other factor often forgotten is that the spouse who invariably becomes the caregiver faces tremendous hurdles both physically as well as mentally. It is estimated that more than half of these caregivers will die before the Alzheimer’s stricken spouse.

What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s is a disease that causes the connectivity of the brain to block or sever cognitive functions. As the disease continues to progress, severe memory loss and behavior changes will occur. Other symptoms may include, difficulty with language, the inability to perform familiar tasks, disorientation, unpredictable mood swings, reduced mobility, sleep pattern changes, decreased muscular functionality, and irritability. Learning to understand the disease, what to look for, and to establish a specific routine while allowing the loved one to be emotionally secure in their environment.

It is no surprise to learn that at the very least, 1 in every 4 people who visit a durable medical equipment retail store are intricately familiar as to the effects of the disease. This makes them a prime contact for a knowledge-based decision in reference to specifically designed Alzheimer’s furniture.
