The Facts about Dementia and Alzheimer’s

1 out of 9 people over the age of 65 are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. It’s not like any other disease in that it stops a person from being able to function and perform activities of daily living, requiring 24/7  “eyes on” care. Many seniors want to prepare for their future so their children don’t feel burdened with difficult decisions. This is especially true when children live elsewhere or don’t get along. Indecision can be your enemy when it comes to making care choices. It’s vital to your well-being and quality of life to have an objective and experienced expert who has lived the journey help you and your family members navigate the waters around preparation for dementia-related disease. Read how you can get prepared.
