- 5.8 million, that's the number of Americans living with Alzheimer's disease.
- The 6th leading cause of death in America, more than those who die from heart attacks.
- 145% is the increase in deaths attributed to Alzheimer's disease from 2000-2017.
- 9% is the decrease in deaths attributed to heart attacks between 2000 and 2017.
And if these numbers don’t worry you, consider this. One person in the U.S. is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease every 65 seconds. On a global scale, over 50 million people live with Alzheimer's and one person is diagnosed with it every 33 seconds. Worldwide we have spent well in excess of $1.1 trillion caring for loved ones suffering from this dread disease of the brain. Yet, despite the amount of time, effort, and money being spent, we are no closer to finding out what causes it or how to cure it.
With our wide variety of services, your loved ones can receive a few hours of companionship a day to around-the-clock personal care. No matter what they require, we promise that each visit from our trusted caregivers – we call Comfort Keepers® - will be meaningful.

There Isn't Enough Time
One of the most common problems we hear being discussed among those who are providing Alzheimer's and dementia care for a loved is that of not having enough time. Time to care not only for their loved one, but also for their family, home, and career. To be sure caring for an elderly loved one with Alzheimer's and dementia can be a very demanding undertaking, but it can also be exhausting. When you find yourself running low on energy and dying for some rest, let Comfort Keepers come to the rescue with our staff of highly trained caregivers.
Those with Alzheimer's Disease Can Still Live at Home
Sadly, far too many families fail to understand that just because a person is living with Alzheimer's disease, this doesn't mean they can't continue living in the safety and comfort of their home or with a family member. In truth, as long as you are providing the right care, living at home has been found to be far better for them. By allowing your loved one to continue with their daily routines will help reduce confusion and anxiety.
The Care We Offer Can Help
At Comfort Keepers, we can provide your loved one with one of our highly trained, skilled caregivers who are there to provide a wide selection of options, including:
Working with your loved one on special mental exercises along with some great games intended to help keep their minds active and strong. Doing this is one of the few ways to help those living with Alzheimer's and dementia remain alert and in the present.
Working to keep a written log with the help of the family caregiver that notes any changes in their behavior that might have a direct impact on the Alzheimer's and dementia care services as prescribed by their medical team.
Working to provide your loved one with incidental transportation and running errands.
Working with your loved one to provide both personal and homemaking services. These include, but are not limited to, bathing, grooming, toileting, light house cleaning, laundry, meal preparation, and more.
Working to provide family caregivers with respite care. This service is specifically designed to give you time to enjoy a little self-care such as a nap, a few hours away, going shopping, even a trip to your favorite spa.
Working with you to use their wealth of knowledge to teach you more about Alzheimer's disease and what you can do to make your role as the family caregiver a little less stressful.
