Resource Guide for Alzheimers Dementia See our upcoming events below.

Noticing changes in your loved one’s memory, mood, and behavior can bring up a lot of questions. We all know that some changes are normal as people age, but what is normal, and when should you be concerned? And what are your options?

We’ve collected our best resources to help you understand some of the warning signs of dementia, evaluate whether your loved one is still safe at home, and understand the different options for caregivers and their families.

These resources are here to serve as a guide and get you started. Remember that only your loved one’s physician can provide a diagnosis. If you have noticed a sudden change in your loved one’s behavior, contact their physician right away.


Understanding the Warning Signs of Dementia

The signs of Alzheimer’s dementia involve more than just occasional forgetfulness. They also include patterns of confusion, behavior changes, and difficulty completing regular, day-to-day tasks. Learn more about spotting the signs of Alzheimer’s dementia here.

Memory Care or Assisted Living: Which is the Right Choice?

Many families turn to memory care when they notice that a loved one is experiencing memory challenges. However, mild to moderate memory loss doesn’t necessarily mean that a senior needs memory care. Learn about the difference between Assisted Living and Memory Care.

How Do You Know When Your Loved One is No Longer Safe at Home?

Are you wondering whether you senior loved one is no longer safe at home? For many families, the answer may be part of a gradual change in a loved one’s health and behavior. This may include changes in your loved one’s home environment, their physical condition, and their behavior and appearance. Learn more about identifying important warning signs that your loved one may no longer be safe at home, especially due to memory loss.
