The local Home Instead Senior Care office is offering a unique approach to help the San
Gabriel Valley area families manage the challenges of Alzheimer’s and other dementias,
diseases that eventually rob seniors of their memories and independence. Free training
for families caring for these older adults is now available.
The Home Instead Senior Care network assembled the top experts in Alzheimer’s disease
to develop the CARE approach. “The training we’re offering to families is the same kind
of training our professional CAREGivers receive,” noted Annie Chin, owner of the local
Home Instead Senior Care office.
The Alzheimer’s or Other Dementias CARE: Changing Aging through Research and
Education Training Program offers a personal approach to help families caring for
seniors with Alzheimer’s disease at home, where 60 to 70 percent live, according to the
This program consists of four classes: Alzheimer’s Disease or Other Dementias
Overview; Capturing Life’s Journey; Techniques to Manage Behaviors; and Activities
to Encourage Engagement. Also available is a free guide for those who are caring for a
loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.
The two initial classes will be held on August 29, 2012 from 5:30 pm -7:30 pm.
