What is Dementia Home Care?

Home care for seniors with dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, is a sort of in-home care that is especially created to offer support and help.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 5.8 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease in 2021. In 2021, an estimated 16.1 million family and friends provide unpaid care for people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.
