An entire generation is now entering their Senior years, and as their children and grandchildren, it is up to us to give them the health care and support that they need.
Coming to terms with a critical or life-threatening illness can be incredibly difficult. When someone you love has been diagnosed with a serious medical condition it is normal to feel afraid and concerned about the future.
Researching health care options for a loved one can be overwhelming. You have to measure the pros and cons of assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and where your friend or family member will receive the best, one-on-one support and care.
Receiving the news that a loved one or a family member has been diagnosed with Dementia can feel devastating. It’s a disease that is truly unique because it doesn’t just affect a person’s physical abilities, but it also triggers a person’s mind.
Dementia is an umbrella term to describe several diseases and conditions that affect an individual’s cognitive functioning in the brain, memory, problem-solving skills, and the ability to perform everyday activities.
This is not an easy time for you and your family. It’s difficult to navigate through life when someone you love has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. You want to be there for them and all you want for them is to feel comfortable, protected, and to know that they’re not alone.
