  3. Sometimes Laughter Really is the Best Medicine

We’re pretty sure that it’s no coincidence that November is both National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and Family Caregivers Month. It just makes sense that Alzheimer’s awareness should go hand-in-hand with a heightened awareness and compassion for those who care for people with the disease.

That’s one of the reasons why Home Instead Senior Care has teamed up with Lauren Miller Rogen and Seth Rogen as part of their Hilarity for Charity organization to offer grants for in-home care services to eligible U.S. and Canadian families through the Alzheimer's and Dementia Care Relief Grant Program. Care will be provided by professionals trained in how to most effectively and compassionately assist individuals with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.

As Lauren Miller Rogen, whose mother was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s at age 55, puts it, "With no proven way to prevent, cure or even slow the progression of Alzheimer's, and an increasing number of diagnoses, we know that the number of families needing support services is only going to grow. We hope to ‘share the care’ by helping as many families as possible with this program."

At Home Instead Senior Care serving Central Oregon, we know all too well how many local families have been touched by Alzheimer’s and we want to help. That’s why we want to encourage any family caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s to apply for a grant for respite care through the Hilarity for Charity program

It is only by taking care of ourselves that we can fully serve the needs of others.
