According to Sunnybrook Hospital’s Dr. Beverley Orser, one in three patients will experience post-surgery memory loss. And unfortunate for some, cognitive difficulties can last as long as three months after a procedure has been performed.
In the following video, Dr. Orser explains that memory loss is caused by inflammation in the brain and that it may be treatable and reversible, as shown in a recent study.
Freedom Home Care, however, understands that later in life, these types of cognitive decline may make the transition back to home even more difficult. And
that’s why we implemented our Home Sweet Home Program where we assist clients in a wide variety of tasks that will help them get settled.
