How MemoryMate® Helps
Memory Loss - Dementia - Alzheimer's
It’s a fact of Life. As we age our Memory and Cognitive skills diminish which causes
frustration and an Increased feeling of diminished self worth. Alzheimer's is a progressive,
terminal disease that affects millions and millions of Americans and tens of millions
worldwide. Alzheimer's is evidenced by an ever increasing loss of memory. A continual
failing of cognitive skills along with a growing inability to function daily. All
these result in embarrassment, low self worth and isolation. There is no cure, sad
but true. There are drugs to slow the progression but there is no cure. There is
no treatment that is broadly used until the arrival of MemoryMate.
The Tragedy of Isolation & Loneliness
Care Givers, loneliness and ever increasing isolation are truly tragic to one who
had previously lived an active and fully engaged life, but this is what Alzheimer's does. Friends and
family slowly disappear as the disease progresses. Why? This disease is brutal on
the Memory Impaired's family and friends as well. It becomes increasingly difficult
to interact with the Memory Impaired, which makes that person think twice before
that much needed visit or phone call. They want to help but don’t want to deal with
the frustration. To witness the sufferers memory challenges and resulting irritability
drives this caring person away, and that is truly a tragedy.
Primary Caregivers Seemingly Left Alone Also
Alzheimer's not only affects the Memory Impaired, but places an extreme
burden on the primary caregiver. The primary caregiver starts out coordinating the
Memory Impaired's care but as the disease progresses and the Memory Impaired becomes
more difficult and irritable to deal with, the primary caregiver becomes isolated
also as the other loving family and friends find it “too much” to be involved.
