Experienced Long Term Disability Support for Cerebral Atrophy Sufferers
Cerebral atrophy, or brain atrophy, is a condition involving the decrease in size of brain cells and tissues. The condition is a common feature of diseases that impact the brain, including cancer, Alzheimer’s disease MS and Huntington’s disease, but can also be caused by age, traumatic brain injury or stroke.
Cerebral atrophy can present with various symptoms that impair the sufferer’s ability to function at work or in their daily routine, including:
- Dementia: Dementia involves the loss of memory and cognitive skills. Common signs of dementia include a person’s inability to learn new tasks or information, loss of memory and disorientation.
- Aphasias: Aphasias impact the ability to understand language. Cerebral atrophy can lead to two types of aphasias, expressive aphasias that impact choice and use of words, sentence structure and spelling, and receptive aphasias that impact comprehension skills.
- Seizures: Cerebral atrophy can result in unpredictable seizures, during which the sufferer may experience convulsions, repetitive and uncontrollable movement of the limbs or unconsciousness.
These symptoms can dramatically impact your ability to fulfill your duties at work, and may prevent you from maintaining your employment. Fortunately, cerebral atrophy sufferers often qualify for long term disability benefits under their employer’s coverage.
