    There is probably no harder news to hear than finding out that you have a family member who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Alzheimer’s is a cruel disease that slowly but surely degrades memory and causes a person to gradually forget how to perform the simplest tasks, even talking is eventually forgotten if the disease progresses far enough. It’s estimated that almost 14 million Americans could be living with Alzheimer’s by the year 2050. Most, if not all of them will need a nursing care plan for Alzheimers. There are several options for Alzheimers home care, but one you should seriously consider is 24 hour live-in home care.

    Live-in home care is a nursing care plan for Alzheimers that would see a trained caregiver present with your family member at all times. They wouldn’t be moving in with your family member. What would most likely happen is there would be a team of two caregivers that would switch off, to make sure the family member is always taken care of.
