It’s human nature to wait for problems to arise before seeking solutions—and that reactive tendency is especially evident when it comes to caring for our aging parents.

Over the holidays, take a proactive approach when meeting with your elderly parents and consider #homecare

It's important to understand the common symptoms of Alzheimer's wandering.

The first step to minimize Alzheimer’s wandering is to reduce your risks.

Many people with dementia wandering symptoms have spatial orientation problems that cause them to get lost easily.

They have trouble recognizing surroundings that were previously familiar to them and may ask to go home even when they are in the home.

Learn how to minimize wandering and maintain a safe environment for individuals with #Alzheimers

Many family #caregivers experience grief, loss, and profound hopelessness while trying to care for their loved ones with #dementia.

An assisted living facility in Boston has designed a groundbreaking approach to serving residents with atypical dementias and other progressive neurological disorders.

What they created is a therapeutic community that offers 3 types of engagement: meaningful, purposeful and passive engagement.

We all have “unfinished business” in life – that is, messy, personal issues with our parents, siblings or exes that leave a sour aftertaste and put a damper on relationships.

Usually, these are not something you’d discuss with your clients.

But what happens when your elderly clients’ unresolved issues hinder their ability to move forward with a plan that will help secure their future or get them the support and care they need?

Here's how you can help.

New research shows hiring an #CareManager has a tremendous overall effect on an older client.

97% of Responsible Party respondents felt that engaging an Aging Life Care Manager had a positive overall effect on the client.

They cited keeping them informed about the client’s status as the most common Care Manager function followed by emergency management and medical management.

All these services work together to set the Responsible Parties’ minds at ease.
