Dementia Care NJ: Helping Your Senior Loved One Live Better


Providing in-home care for a person with dementia is physically, mentally and emotionally demanding. For informal or unpaid family caregivers, the stress of providing care to a person with dementia can lead to declines in health, emotional wellbeing and happiness--especially if the caregiver is also working outside the home and raising for their own family.

Over time, many family caregivers may feel that the only viable option is to move their loved one into a memory care facility where they become one of many who require care and attention.

Fortunately, facility care is not your only option.

Professional in-home care can help family caregivers of people who have dementia lead more balanced lives. It can also ensure that individuals living with dementia receive the specialized care they need without leaving the comfort of the home.

Visiting Angels of Mercer and Burlington Counties offers dementia and Alzheimer’s Care in the home. Here’s how our specialized care services can help you and your loved one live better.
