Alzheimer's Disease Facts
- Every 65 seconds one person in America is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and on a worldwide scale, this number jumps to one person every 33 seconds.
- Currently, there are over 5.8 million people here in the U.S. and over 50 million people worldwide who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
- Alzheimer's disease is now listed by the Alzheimer's Association as being the 6th leading cause of death here in the United States.
- Deaths related to Alzheimer's disease and dementia rose by 145% during the period 2000-2017, while those caused by heart attacks declined by 9%.
The medical community is still trying to determine the cause of Alzheimer's disease and why some of us are more likely to succumb to it than others. Despite over $1.1 trillion being spent on care and research around the world, researchers are no closer to finding a cure. Many families find themselves being the ones to provide care for their loved ones without any kind of formal education or training.

Our Caregivers Offer a Variety of Services
There are several benefits to having one of our skilled caregivers provide a variety of dementia home care services for your loved one, and, of course, family caregivers. Our caregivers can come to your home and help with:
Establishing a daily routine of mental health exercises along with games your loved one will enjoy that have been designed to stimulate their brain and keep their minds active. Doctors have found this to help those with Alzheimer's disease and dementia by reducing their levels of anxiety and confusion.
Creating a day-to-day log in which any changes in your loved one's behavior can be noted. This information can be passed on to their doctor or medical care team and used to determine if any changes in their care plan need to be made.
Providing your loved one with transportation to important things like visits to their doctor or dentist or run those errands you never seem to have enough time to get around to.
Providing your loved one with a variety of personal care services(bathing, grooming, incontinence, etc.) and homemaking services(cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, laundry, etc.) on an as-needed basis. Our goal is to help keep their home (or yours if they live with you) clean and safe along with keeping it in a "livable" condition.
Providing the family caregiver with respite care. This type of care is directed to the family caregiver and is intended to give you time to take care of any personal business, take a well-deserved nap, or indulge in a little self-care.
