Help families affected by Alzheimer's disease get crucial care for their loved ones.
Alzheimer's and related dementias are conditions that worsen over time. Where family members are able to care for loved ones in the early stages of the disease, a time comes when such responsibilities are often handed over to professional caregivers. When a family is unable to afford a caregiver, or the caregiver needs to take personal time, ExtraCare is just the place to find affordable care and mental stimulation for those affected by Alzheimer's.
At ExtraCare, the goal is to enrich the lives of people dealing with Alzheimer's disease or related conditions by providing opportunities for social, physical, mental, and creative activities. A variety of activities are offered daily, and programs are customized to individually meet a guest's abilities. With your help, those affected by Alzheimer's and related dementias can get the care they need, while providing much needed rest to extremely dedicated caregivers.
You can help. As little as $5 contributes to excellent care for Alzheimer's patients and provide respite to caregivers and family members taking care of their loved ones with Alzheimer's.
ExtraCare for Families Living with Alzheimer's offers opportunities for people afflicted with memory loss, such as Alzheimer's disease or other related dementia, to maximize their intellectual and social abilities through a supportive day program of supervised fun activities, thereby providing relief for the caregivers.
