Dementia progressively weakens cognitive abilities, negatively impacting memory, thinking, language, judgement and behavior. Most forms are degenerative.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, affecting about six million people in the United States and Canada. Other forms of dementia include vascular dementia (caused by a series of small strokes), Lewy body dementia, and chronic brain syndrome. Conditions such as Huntingson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease can also lead to dementia.
Millions of seniors suffer from Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia and a growing number of these individuals are cared for at home.

Home Care Assistance of Prescott offers specialty care for dementia patients. Our highly trained, reliable caregivers promote a higher quality of life for seniors and provide important peace of mind and respite to families who are supporting their loved ones at home.
