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 of which can create a stressful burden on you as their caregiver. If you’re looking for trusted support, we invite you to reach out and learn how one of our Evansville Alzheimer's care and Dementia support professionals can help care for those living in Newburgh, Boonville, and surrounding areas.

We’ll create a customized home care plan that helps your loved one live as independently as possible while providing you peace of mind in their safety. Our Senior Helpers staff is exclusively trained by care professionals to provide Evansville Alzheimer’s care and dementia support services, and we’re committed to creating an environment your loved one will thrive in.
