I wanted to thank you again for sending Maria into our home to care for our Dad over the past 9 months. It was truly amazing to see how much he enjoyed her company and assistance in his home each day. Maria really became part of our family and we are so thankful to have found such a good home care agency that provides the level of quality care we experienced. Our fears about leaving Dad alone were put at ease and we were able to enjoy the time we spent with him and know that when we left he was in safe hands. Thanks for all you did to help Dad in his last days and for the funeral flowers - that was very thoughtful of you.

All the best.

Alzheimer’s Care

What is Alzheimer’s Care?

Over 4.5 million people in the United States and 26 million worldwide suffer from Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia. The disease destroys brain cells and symptoms can include confusion, anger, mood swings, language breakdown and long-term memory loss. Caring for a person with Alzheimer's disease involves specialized services that differ from other types of senior housing.

What is the best type of care for a loved one with the disease? Alzheimer's care is often delivered in an assisted living or nursing home setting usually in a separate floor or unit. Generally, the residents live in semi-private apartments and have structured activities delivered by staff members trained in Alzheimer's and dementia care. Most of these living environments have secured areas to prevent wandering, a common symptom of the disease. Often, residents have access to outdoor walking paths or gardens which are within secured areas.

Stand alone memory care communities called Alzheimer's special care units or memory care units also exist to better meet the specialized needs of residents with the disease. These memory care communities have been designed specifically for seniors suffering from Alzheimer's disease or dementia and often have features like a circular layout to ensure a resident won't encounter a 'dead-end' in a hallway (a potential source of stress for advanced cases of Alzheimer's).

When making a decision, it is important to ask if there is specialized care offered for residents with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. You can find communities that offer specialized care by contacting one of our Eldercare Advisors at toll-free

I want to take the opportunity to let you know how grateful we are that we met up with your company. What a treat to work with you guys are! We have really enjoyed getting to know you guys over the past two years and will definately stop by and say hello when we are back in town again! Thanks for taking such good care of our Mom. You don't know how much weight that took off of our shoulders - to know she was in safe hands when we couldn't be there. Alvira is an amazing person and we feel so lucky to have been able to have her care for Mom for the entire two years! I don't know how you guys do all that you do and keep such a bright attitude - as I know Mom wasn't the easiest of people to be around with her disease and all - but we sure do appreciate everything you did for her and the lengths you went to in order to keep everyone in the loop. We wish you all the best with your company on-going and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Sincerely,

Joan & April
