Over the past two months, Senior Helpers of Central and Western Virginia sponsored the Walks to End Alzheimer's in Winchester, Harrisonburg, Culpeper, Charlottesville, and Augusta County to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support, and research. These walks are part of a global movement in over 600 communities to rewrite the future of those who will lose their lives to Alzheimer's.
Senior Helpers specializes in Alzheimer's and dementia home care for just this reason. We understand that this is the one of the most stressful diseases for caregivers above among chronic illnesses. The frustration and loneliness of losing a loved one before our eyes is felt in each family that suffers from this disease.
Currently, there are an estimated 5.3 million Americans diagnosed with Alzheimer's. It's the only terminal illness that cannot be slowed or cured. Senior Helpers is devoted to helping fight this disease and finding a cure.
We help seniors with Alzheimer's and dementia maintain their independence in their own homes by enabling them to do the activities they love the most. This provides adult children of seniors with Alzheimer's and dementia the peace of mind they seek when choosing home care for a loved one.
