Celebrating National Senior Independence Month

National Senior Independence Month

In honor of National Senior Independence Month, we’re taking the opportunity to share ideas about independence in the face of dementia’s challenges. Often, caregivers and families see dementia as something that takes away independence from their loved one. While this may be the case in some respect, especially in the later stages of the disease, it is possible to encourage freedom, agency and independence even in the midst of challenging symptoms.

Preparing for Your Visit to a Memory Care Community

Preparing a Memory Care Visit

If your family has decided that it’s time your loved one with memory loss received the professional care and support offered in a memory care community, then your search for the right place has already begun. While community websites and internet reviews may provide some valuable information, the only way to really know what a community is like is to experience it in person.

How to Talk to Children About Dementia

Talking to Children about Dementia

When a person is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, life changes not just for the person, but for the whole family as well. While adults have the capability to learn more about the disease and cope with its realities, young children may need help to comprehend the changes that may occur for their loved one and even for themselves. If you have children or grandchildren affected by the challenges of memory loss, you can become a great source of education and support.
