How to Hire and Train Help in the Home Workbook
Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia can be physically and emotionally demanding. As the disease progresses, some families may find it difficult to bring a non-family member into the home or have someone else help care for a parent or spouse. It is important for you and those around you to see that hiring a person to help provide care is not a sign of weakness; it is a sign of strength. The Alzheimer's Association has created a workbook to help you with the hiring process. Click here to view the workbook.
We maintain updated information on home care, adult day care, care coordination, assisted living, skilled nursing facilities, eldercare lawyers and transportation available in the community. Our staff and trained professionals can help assess whether a specific care provider meets the needs of an individual with Alzheimer’s.
