As anybody who has ever had to care for a loved one with memory loss knows quite well, it can be an extremely emotionally stressful situation. Many people are unsure of how to provide proper senior care to someone with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or another type of memory issue.
The founders of Visiting Angels understand how difficult it can be for family members who are dealing with this issue, and how confusing it is to try to determine which home health care option is best. That is why they have scheduled the upcoming meetings; by teaching people about the social services, educational programs and other resources that are available at no cost to caregivers at the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, it is hoped that attendees will leave the meeting feeling educated and empowered.
“Complementing excellent medical care and opportunities to participate in research, our focus on caregivers and families affirms that neurocognitive disorders impact not just the patient, but everyone involved in care and support,” a flyer about the upcoming meetings noted.
Anybody who would like to learn more about Visiting Angels is welcome to visit the agency’s user-friendly website at any time; there, they can read about the wide variety of services they offer their clients.
