Dementia affects various areas of the brain, and the symptoms of dementia can vary, depending on the diagnosis and current state of the disease.

If you or a loved one is experiencing early signs of dementia or memory loss – or have been diagnosed with early onset dementia, our Synergy Care team can help.

It is essential to have an understanding of not only the disease but how to manage those with the disease on both a daily basis – and plan for more extended care.

  • Agitation

  • Difficulty problem-solving
  • Difficulty with activities of daily living
