Approximately 5.8 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Our Chicago and Northshore residents are living with dementia which effects several aspects of their lives. The simplest way to define it would be a collection of symptoms that impair various brain functions including memory, social abilities, judgement and other thinking skills that controls a person’s ability to perform daily activities.
Homewatch CareGivers understands the difficulties and frustration that this disease brings, not only to those living with dementia, but also for the caregivers who are helping them on a day to day basis. And we recognize that dealing with dementia can often have more difficult days than good. We provide our caregivers with the tools they need to help them and their clients deal with these difficult days.
