Alzheimer’s disease affects 5.8 million Americans. Every 65 seconds, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with the disease. Family and friends – more than 16 million of them – provide more than 18.5 million hours of unpaid care to those with Alzheimer’s*. These staggering statistics are only expected to grow. That is why Family Matters is in the battle.
We have specially trained, expert caregivers who comfort and care for those with Alzheimer’s disease. We provide respite care for family members who need time off from caregiving duties to rest, work, or go to appointments.
We can only win this battle together. It takes all of us to care compassionately and meet the daily needs of those suffering with the disease while researchers search for a cure. We stand ready to support you and your loved ones with skilled, inhome caregivers and we hope the information in this issue will help as well.
