Bloomfield Hills, MI, December, 2012 – Alzheimer’s care can be a big responsibility and is often given by loving family caregivers who are willing to put the needs of their loved one above their own.  Many family caregivers work tirelessly to enable their loved one to continue living in the comfort of their own home.  However, with the number of Alzheimer’s cases continuing to rise, it is very common for spouses and elderly care givers to begin to show signs of dementia themselves as the years pass.   ComForcare Home Care urges families to observe elderly couples living at home to determine what their needs may be and find ways to meet them so loved ones can continue to live happy, healthy lives at home.

 

The Alzheimer’s Association has projected that the number of Americans affected by dementia or Alzheimer’s disease is expected to rise from 5 million to almost 16 million by the year 2050.  To manage this growing concern, the association suggests that elderly couples with early signs of dementia plan for advanced home care or Alzheimer’s care services at some point in their lifetime.  Home care franchises like ComForcare provide professional and compassionate elderly care and Alzheimer’s care for aging couples and individuals.

 

“Each of our home care franchises offers clients specialized services based on their specific needs to help them maintain their dignity, independence, and quality of life,” says ComForcare Home Care President Mark Armstrong.

 

ComForcare shares resources for clients and their families to use when determining what kind of care is necessary and when.  For many families, the topic can be a sore one, but with the assistance of a trained home care professional, concerned family members can more easily sit down with their parents and grandparents to share in an open supportive discussion about their loved ones’ goals and needs.
