Resources for your aging loved ones

JENNIE Show Episode 22

Television Park– Dementia is the most prevalent illness plaguing the aging population in the CSRA.

One way to prevent being stuck at home as a senior is to prepare early.

The Alzheimer’s Association website has a Community Resource Finder page that is easy to navigate.  You simply enter your zip code to find all kinds of information about medical providers… housing options, like assisted care facilities, in-home care, and community programs…  and services.

Hopefully, we will live long enough to be called “elderly”– and be healthy enough to enjoy those years.  When that’s not the case, though, it’s good to know there are people and places that can help.
