Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia can have detrimental effect on physical health and the emotional health of family members.
Caregivers have experience in caring for clients with Alzheimer's and dementia in a way that empowers them and dignifies the process for all family members during all stages of the disease. A daily routine and structure are important and experienced caregivers are prepared to handle the changing moods and behaviors that can accompany the disease.
When the family members are able to take better care of themselves, they will better serve their loved one. Since Alzheimer's and dementia also affects the family and friends of someone with the disease, it is important to know that help is available.
