September 21, 2016 GMT

Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease. It’s not just about forget•ting a name, a face or a familiar place. It’s much more serious. It’s about not being able to function; to carry out the essential activities of daily living: eating, bathing, dressing, com•munication. The con•dition grows progres•sively worse. There is no known cure.

Almost 75% of those with Alzheimer’s live at home and are cared for by devoted, loving family caregivers. But there are limits as to what relatives can do. There comes a time when the disease has progressed to the point where expert profes•sional care and su•pervision are needed. That is when the ex•perienced staff at our Garden Court can help.
