Half of Canadians (47%) say they will do everything in their power to avoid entering LTC themselves, and to keep close family members out. One-in-five (22%) say they’ll start saving for such a plan, while more than twice that number say they “dread” the thought of living in long-term care (44%).

What is dementia and how to identify it?

When an elderly person has memory loss, disorientation, slow responses, people already think it’s dementia. It is important to not be too hasty, as when a person has these symptoms, it does not mean they have dementia.

Learn more ⤵

Generally, the characteristics of Dementia are classified into three stages or phases.

It is important to point out that some people do not have all the characteristics or go through all the phases.

🧠 Initial dementia

Dementia usually starts very gradually and it is often impossible to pinpoint the exact time it started.

A person at this stage may take longer to understand complex ideas and do routine work.

🧠 Moderate Dementia

At this stage, the problems are more evident and disabling. The person can:

Easily forget about recent events. The memory of the distant past is usually better, but some details can be forgotten or confused;

and Getting confused about time and space is very common as well.

🧠 Advanced Dementia

In this third and last phase, the person is severely disabled and needs complete care. Symptoms:

Being unable to remember situations that occurred a few minutes before, for example, forgetting that you just ate;

Losing the ability to understand or use language;

Not recognizing friends and family.

Pay attention to your elderly family member and seek help from a specialist doctor as soon as you notice any of these signs!

Home care should be key part of Ontario’s Seniors Strategy

"Most studies of citizen preferences for seniors’ supports find that older people would prefer to avoid moving into an LTC home and want to maintain independence in their own residence as long as possible."

Home care should be key part of Ontario’s Seniors Strategy: https://bit.ly/3ctCIyI.

Addressing long-term care staffing and facility issues are just one of the pandemic lessons learned. Increasing home care options is also critical.
