Hello fellow Caregivers!

Dementia and Alzheimer’s are two very common mental health diseases that our clients—and millions nationally—suffer from. As Caregivers, it is almost certain that you will encounter this and it is important to know how to handle situations that may arise.

Working with a client with either of these diseases isn’t much different than working with a client without. Compassion, oversight, and reliable assistance are the foundations of what we provide, but there are a few additional methods that you need to be aware of.

To better help explain the disease itself, and the ways to serve those clients, are Martin Perez (who you all know) and David Pinto, Assistant Supervisor of Katzin Memory Care in Seacrest Village.

As always, if you need ANYTHING, let me know.
