When a senior receives an Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis, the entire family will be devastated. As the condition is chronic and progressive, this means that those with it over time become completely dependent on others. At first, many families opt to keep Alzheimer’s care within the family. However, as the demands of the disease are often very high, it becomes impossible for families to keep up without sacrificing their own livelihood.
