In the newest addition to the Seniorly CareTalks, Dr. Elizabeth Edgerly and Alexandra Morris of Alzheimer’s Association cover dementia resources including memory care, and their importance to families affected by the illness.
The Alzheimer’s Association is the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s science, and their dual focus consists of creating a world without the disease and enhancing the quality of life for Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers.
Their resources include care consultations, a 24-hour helpline, support groups, educational material and information on local resources.
For those who find they are no longer able to provide the care needed for their aging loved ones with dementia to thrive at home, Seniorly features hundreds of memory care senior housing options for families to consider. Our gerontologist also offers free care consultations for those who need some assistance deciding on the best memory care situation for their loved ones.
For more information and resources to support your family, visit the Alzheimer’s Association website at www.alz.org or call them at 1-800-272-3900 day or night. They are happy to help!
