Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia. It's a progressive disease that gradually robs a person of their intellectual abilities to the point that it interferes with daily life. The result is the need for assistance. Alzheimer care in Riverside, California, includes various options. Which type of care you choose will depend on personal preferences, finances, as well as the stage to which Alzheimer's has progressed. No matter which type of care you start with, the fact is there is no cure for Alzheimer's so care will be long-term and most people will need outside care. Many of the communities that offer Alzheimer care in Riverside provide services to accommodate the various stages of the disease.

      You're right, Donna. It's so much to wade through, it helps to have an idea of what the choices are.

      People really don't understand the stress and mental and physical toll it takes on caregivers. Thanks for taking a moment to comment. :)

      These are very good and informative hubs. My mother eventually did end up in nursing homes but while I cared for her myself I have little to no help and no one has any idea just how hard it is physically and mentally for one person to shoulder all this responsibility. Love gives you no choice but it is a real shame for those who should help and won't. Their day may come.
