Alzheimer's and Dementia Resources is a leading senior care resource for family caregivers seeking information and support as they care for aging parents, spouses and other loved ones.
When an older adult starts experiencing Alzheimer’s or dementia symptoms, many families realize it’s in their loved one’s best interest to seek memory care. Due to the symptoms that accompany memory loss, continuing to live at home without professional help can become unhealthy and unsafe for some seniors.
Memory care communities provide a safe alternative for seniors living with memory impairment. These facilities are managed by professionals trained to care for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients, and they are specifically designed to accommodate older adults with progressive cognitive disorders. 
Our memory care facility resource provides detailed information to help caregivers and their families in Missouri better understand what memory care involves and how to choose the right community. 

Senior Home Care

Seniors who would like to continue living independently, but who are also in need of additional help with their healthcare may benefit from home healthcare services. A range of home healthcare services is available depending on the requirements of individuals, and home healthcare providers can be hired as necessary, whether on a full-time or part-time basis. Home healthcare providers can help with tasks such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and mobility needs, or they may help with the administration of medications or the performing of basic medical tasks. These services can range from extensive in-home medical care (home health care) or just help around the house and personal assistance (in-home care).
