Alzheimer’s disease and the family caregiver: Deciding when to make a move
The disease affects nearly 6 million men and women in North America today. More than half of all dementia cases are "diagnosed" as Alzheimer's disease. Depending on the stage, it can become quite overwhelming at times and unlike other seniors in need of general care or supervision, those suffering from dementia require specialized assistance tailored to their specific diagnosis.
Unfortunately, working adults aren't able to commit as much time as they'd like to assist their loved one. That's where CareGiver's Choice comes in. All of our caregivers are trained and fully certified in basic dementia care, many having certification in advanced dementia care protocols as well.
