Easing the Burden on Caregivers
Especially with a full-time job and the emotional strain that often accompanies the decline of a loved one. But unfortunately, that’s the reality of age. Today, there are more than 6.5 million Americans suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease, according to statistics from Alz.org, and one in nine individuals over the age of 65 are at risk of memory loss. If you’re taking care of a loved one with memory-care needs, it’s easy to run yourself ragged. There are medications to manage, obstacles to watch out for, and basic activities such as eating, bathing, and using the restroom that need to be considered. That’s in addition to keeping your own life in order. Wouldn’t it be nice if you had an extra set of hands to help with your current responsibilities?
