Low Energy and Alzheimer’s Alzheimer’s disease progresses gradually. On the way one of the common symptoms of Alzheimer’s is low energy. Although at first the symptoms do not become much visible but with time low energy becomes very prominent. So we from Comfort Keepers Dementia Care Redwood City Have thought of sharing with you some issues regarding the link between low energy and Alzheimer’s. About 40 of seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s have been reportedly suffering from depression too. This is one of the prominent causes of low energy in case of Alzheimer’s. So caregivers should remain alert to discern the symptoms of depression in seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s as the seniors may not be forthcoming in discussing the issues themselves. It is often the case that the seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s have difficulty in having a good nights sleep. In case of Alzheimer’s the symptoms often worsen during the sunsets due to a special condition called sun downing. As a result of this increased amount of agitation night time sleeps often gets disturbed and causes lack of energy. Another cause of having a low level of energy while suffering from Alzheimer’s is the lack of nutrition. What we have observed from Comfort Keepers Dementia Care Redwood City is that seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s tend to have sugary and fatty food items that may be tasty but lack enough nutritional value. So if the food habits remain unchecked and unplanned then lack of nutrition can cause low energy in seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s. Therefore if you have a senior loved one who is suffering from Alzheimer’s and low level of energy then be aware of the causes mentioned above and take necessary measures to prevent these.
