Homecare and Alzheimer’s
Providing caregiver’s and homecare services for patient’s with Alzheimer’s is becoming more common as the population ages. Since 1999, Lighthouse Homecare has been honored to provide homecare and home nursing services to the Quad Cities. This includes including Bettendorf, Davenport, Moline, Rock Island, and all of the surround areas. Keeping up with the changing landscape of homecare is important as the aging population continues to grow. Recently, The Huffington Post has a great article about the importance of information on Alzheimer’s.
A snippet from the article below…
The Vision of the Alzheimer’s Association is “A world without Alzheimer’s.” Its mission is “To eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.” According to the website, the Alzheimer’s Association, formed in 1980, is the world’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
The Association has a 24/7 Helpline staffed by highly-trained information specialists who are backed up by Care Consultants — Master’s level social work counselors. They can answer questions, help you process your feelings, assist in problem solving and, when needed, link you to resources in your local Alzheimer’s Association chapter. You can call as often as you need to. Just dial 1-800-272-3900.
