And like a social worker, Aging Life Care Professionals must be educated, experienced and certified to work with older adults in such a capacity."

Aging Life Care Association Press Release
Caring for someone with dementia can test even the strongest of relationships. The anxiety, agitation and erratic behavior often associated with dementia may be hard for a spouse or adult child to understand or manage. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 5 million people are currently living with Alzheimer’s. By 2050, this number could increase to 16 million, making Alzheimer’s and other dementias a growing health concern.
