  • Aging Life Care Managers® Work to Ease the Caregiving Burden for Families Struggling with Alzheimer's Disease

    ALCA Press Release
    According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 5.7 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s. In addition, 16.1 million people are acting as unpaid caregivers for those diagnosed.

Aging Life Care Managers can help families create and implement disaster plans. These professionals can assess a families’ situation, locate resources and support, and coordinate care plans so that older adults or others in need of services can age safely and with confidence.
