Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Difference

The month of September we recognize and bring attention to World Alzheimer’s. The terms Alzheimer’s and Dementia are often used conversely because people believe that they carry the same meaning. These two different diagnosis are related, however, differ from one another and can become confusing when talked about.

Dementia is defined as a brain disorder that affects our communication skills and activities of daily living (ADLs) while Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia that specifically affects parts of the brain that control our memory, thoughts, and language. Dementia is often associated with the cognitive decline of aging. When a person is diagnosed with dementia, they are being diagnosed with a set of symptoms. But health issues other than Alzheimer’s can cause dementia as well, like, Huntington’s and Parkinson’s disease.

“Family is Forever” is the theme for this year’s National Assisted Living Week and was inspired by Maya Angelou. This observance day gives people the opportunity to celebrate those who serve and are served –  staff, volunteers, residents, and their families, throughout assisted living facilities all over the nation.

“Family isn’t always blood, it’s the people in your life who want you in theirs: the ones who accept you for who you are, the ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.” -Maya Angelou

CompassionCare Hospice recognizes all of the assisted living facilities in our community and the role they play in providing assistance and care to our local seniors and those with disabilities. Thank you for all you do! Happy National Assisted Living Week!

Must Have Questions at End-of-Life

If you thought you were dying, what would matter most? Seventy percent of Americans say they would prefer to die at home, but nearly 70 percent die in hospitals and institutions.

“Being Mortal”, a Frontline PBS program based off the book, “Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End”, by Dr. Atul Gawande, underscores the importance of people planning ahead and talking with family members about end-of-life decisions. The film sheds light on how a medical system focused on cure often leaves out the sensitive conversations that need to happen so a patient’s true wishes can be known and honored at the end.

CompassionCare Hospice took part in a nationwide campaign this past year by offering free screenings of this important documentary throughout the Las Vegas community. We participated in and led guided conversations on how to take

Volunteers Wanted

Hospice volunteers are essential when putting together a hospice team. Medicare guidelines require hospice organizations to have and utilize volunteers in addition to their paid employees, volunteers help to support hospice staff and also relieve caregivers. They make scheduled visits as needed based on their availability and willingness. They are unpaid, yet can be priceless.

Many people imagine themselves becoming volunteers, making a difference for people somehow in their lives. Hospice volunteering often isn’t thought of though. Some people are afraid they don’t have what it takes. They are afraid to “watch someone pass away” or have the misconception that all a hospice volunteer does is “sit with someone during their last hours”. Although our volunteers can be with someone during their final hours, if they choose, there is so much more to volunteering with hospice.<
