Dementia & Alzheimer’s Home Care in Massachusetts
Although there is no cure for dementia and Alzheimer’s, care and support for individuals are critical to maintaining a high quality of life. One of the most important factors in caring for someone with memory loss is helping them to feel safe and loved, and what better place than in the comfort and familiarity of their own home.
Caring for someone with memory loss presents many physical and emotional challenges. It’s important for family caregivers to know that there are options for memory loss care that don’t involve removing your loved one from their natural surroundings.
