Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) August 28, 2012 - Home Care Assistance, the leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is proud to announce the launch of http://www.ResourcesAlzheimers.com. The site is one component of an expansive suite of Alzheimer’s and dementia-related educational resources that the company is offering to older adults and senior care professionals. The Alzheimer’s and dementia outreach initiative includes targeted websites, informational webinars and free continuing education seminars hosted for professionals who commonly work with adults with Alzheimer’s and their families. The site is designed to provide information for individuals who want to learn what practices promote optimal quality of life for adults with Alzheimer’s and how in-home care can help adults with dementia remain in their own homes and maintain as full a life as possible. Spurred by requests from family and professional caregivers across North America for high quality and reputable information around best practices in caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, the company embarked on an innovative community outreach and educational program. From targeted websites to a Healthy Longevity Webinar Series to an award-winning senior wellness series of books, the company has developed a wide range of resources that have earned it a reputation as the trusted experts in the senior care industry. By completing the brief form on the website, individuals will automatically receive a free, downloadable copy of The Handbook of Live-In Care, the second book in the company’s Award-Winning Senior Wellness Series. The book is the first publication of its kind targeted at family caregivers, and is sure to be a valuable resource for anyone who has a loved one living with Alzheimer’s.
“Home Care Assistance is proud to be a leader in community education around Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias,” said Kathryn Zakskorn, Public Relations and Marketing Manager of Home Care Assistance. “It is incredibly important to provide families with the information and resources that they need in order to create an environment that allows their loved ones to experience maximum quality of life, no matter what stage of disease progression.”
Home Care Assistance is considered a trailblazer in the in-home dementia care space with an innovate care model that goes well beyond the types of assistance typically provided; with its proprietary Balanced Care Method training, Home Care Assistance caregivers place an emphasis on promoting lifestyle factors that contribute to healthy longevity, such as healthy diet, sharp minds and active social ties.
Home Care Assistance, unique in its evidence-based approach to long-term care and aging, has continued plans to expand its suite of educational materials and outreach activities not only for clients, but for adults living with Alzheimer’s and their loved ones around the world.
“Our mission at Home Care Assistance is to change the way the world ages,” said Shadi Gholizadeh, Business Operations Manager of Home Care Assistance. “By providing information about the positive impact that in-home care can have on the lives of individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, we hope to promote the vision that aging adults can lead fulfilling lives in almost any state of physical or mental ability when given the proper support and resources.”
For further education around the topic of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's, register today for a free webinar on Wednesday, September 12th at 11 AM Pacific, 2 PM Eastern, presented by Dr. Judith London, renowned dementia expert and author. The webinar, Support for Alzheimer's and Dementia Caregivers: The Unsung Heroes, will address the physical and mental impact of Alzheimer's and dementia, provide family and professional caregivers with best practices to promote quality of life, and share practical knowledge on adapting to behaviors common in individuals suffering from dementia. While caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s can be a physically and emotionally trying experience, following Dr. London’s “ABC Approach” can equip caregivers with the understanding and knowledge to provide the best possible environment for care recipients.
