Alzheimer's & Dementia Care

Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative brain disease that is unfortunately well-known amongst the senior population. What’s even more common is dementia, an overall term used when a group of symptoms presents in a patient, including memory loss and other cognitive impairments.

We understand that dementia can take a toll on a loved one’s ability to accomplish everyday tasks, all which can create a stressful burden on you as their caretaker. If you’re in the Evansville, Indiana area, we invite you to reach out and learn how one of our Newburgh, Boonville, and Evansville Alzheimer's care and Dementia support professionals can help.
