​​​​​​​​​alzheimers-care.jpg​​​​​​​​While there's currently no cure for Alzheimer's disease, there is care and caring. We believe the right care approach can help your loved one maintain a high quality of life even in the face of memory loss. Staying in the familiar surroundings of home can keep seniors with Alzheimer's or dementia feeling safe and loved. 


Our Unique Approach to Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care​

We pioneered memory care training. In collaboration with experts on Alzheimer’s disease, we created a training program called Alzheimer’s Disease or Other Dementias CARE: Changing Aging Through Research and Education®. This unique program equips our CAREGiversSM to deliver distinctive memory care based on research and experience.  Rather than focusing on the diagnosis and symptoms of the disease, our CARE program focuses on the care and dignity of the person with dementia. This relationship-centered approach enables CAREGivers to provide individualized care that:

  • Helps your loved one remain safe and calm at home
  • Encourages engagement
  • Provides nutritious meals
  • Creates social interaction
  • Provides mind-stimulating activities
  • Helps minimize changing behavioral & cognitive symptoms
  • Honors who the senior was earlier in life
  • Supports the family

Free Training and Resources for Families

Our training doesn’t stop with our professional CAREGivers. We know family caregivers are looking for help, too. That’s why we also offer free Alzheimer’s Family Caregiver Training to any family that needs support. The free training is available through an online e-learning course at HelpForAlzheimersFamilies.com, or at local Home Instead Senior Care offices.

You’ll also find additional resources, such as a free smartphone app with tips for minimizing symptoms​, or more information about Alzheimer’s care services​ at HelpforAlzheimersFamilies.com. ​


Free Alzheimer’s Care Services for Families in Need

It’s our honor to be able to help out families who may be unable to afford Alzheimer’s care services or who simply need respite. Home Instead Senior Care® has partnered with Hilarity for Charity® to establish the Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Relief Grant Program.
