Forgetting but never Forgotten

Alzheimers Home Care

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive and fatal disease affecting as many as 5.3 million Americans. It slowly destroys brain cells, causing memory loss and problems with thinking and behavior severe enough to affect your work, lifelong hobbies and social life. Currently, there is no known cure for Alzheimer’s, making it the seventh-leading cause of death in the United States.

Early detection is critical to increase the chances of benefitting from treatment. It also provides you and your loved ones more time to plan for the future and make choices that can maximize your independence and quality of life.

Alzheimer’s disease can happen to anyone – your loved one, your neighbor – even you. Don’t let it stop you from living the life you want! Learn how to create a safe and comfortable environment and to make tasks of daily living more manageable.
