When someone you love is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease the news is devastating. But it doesn’t have to mean that life is over. In the past, caregivers would turn to nursing homes for help. That’s because caring for someone with Alzheimer’s can be an exhausting, stressful, and 24/7 job. Today, there are assisted living communities dedicated to caring for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of memory impairment. Join Kristin Dupont, Vice President of Marketing for Autumn Leaves, to learn more. Autumn Leaves operates memory care assisted living communities nationwide, and they specialize in offering the best possible care for residents afflicted with memory loss.
