MEMORY SUPPORT & HEALTH
One of the most challenging issues for caretakers and adult children is memory care. If you are working with someone now, you’re not alone. One in eight people in the U.S. over the age of 65 is currently experiencing some sort of cognitive impairment due to dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.
The good news is, the latest research shows that the earlier theories of the medical community about Alzheimers and dementia have proven untrue. In fact, there are many ways to curb its progression through various forms of treatment.
Finding the right approach.
There’s much to know about the disease. And, most importantly, much to learn about the best options for yourself or a loved one—in order to find the right mix of care and therapies for the best outcome.
While many people avoid telling their friends and family because they feel embarrassed, it is important to reach out for support. Similar to attitudes about cancer long ago, memory challenges must become mainstream and understood for better outcomes for patients and their families. This has sparked the growth of many groups and resources designed to support the caregivers and individual.
