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
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."
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.
