Alzheimer's Home Care
Offering home care for someone with Alzheimer's or other dementias -- in your home or theirs -- can be a rewarding and practical solution for many families. But it's also full of challenges. One key to adapting a home for someone with Alzheimer's is to maintain familiarity while making changes necessary for reassurance and safety (from falls, wandering, and other dangerous situations). You'll also want to get advice from your local Area Agency on Aging and find in-home help.
