Alzheimer's and Dementia Care
World Alzheimer’s Month begins in September this year, with World’s Alzheimer’s Day taking place on September 21st, 2018. This aims to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia, as the number of people affected by the disease grows globally.
Here in Ireland, about 55,000 people are currently living with some form of dementia, and that figure is expected to increase dramatically in the years ahead.
There are more than 60,000 caregivers whose lives are also affected as each day they care for their loved ones who need that extra support.
Confidence to care
Home Instead Senior Care understands the worries Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias can cause in the lives of older people and their families.
In fact, many of the older people cared for by our Professional CAREGivers have dementia. So we've witnessed the distress and loss that older adults can face.
We’ve come to recognise how Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias can also affect family carers as well. These conditions can affect their energy, peace of mind and happiness.
That’s why Home Instead Senior Care is hosting a series of FREE workshops throughout September, aimed at ensuring family carers who are looking after relatives with dementia, have the ‘Confidence to Care’.
