Being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease or a related dementia does not have to cause such a devastating change in lifestyle. There is HOPE.
While there will be limitations in what the diagnosed person can and cannot do, there is still so much freedom to enjoy for the person diagnosed as well as family members.
Our goal is to educate individuals, healthcare organizations and communities to view and treat people with Alzheimer’s in a way that maintains or improves the person’s lifestyle for as long as possible by prolonging his or her level of self-sufficiency and independence.
Two Ways We Can Help:
In many cases, all that’s needed is one or two telephone coaching sessions. Typically, these sessions last 1 – 2 hours and can include several members of the family – in various locations.
Some of the topics we cover are daily activities, problem behaviors, safety measures, dementia education, home-care options, communication and if needed, out-of-home placement.
Some families prefer an on-site visit so that the loved one can be evaluated. This is not very practical for most families living outside of the NY, NJ and CT tri-state area.
