Live chat with expert: Linda Lundeen

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia takes a team: physicians, pharmacists, caregivers, loving family and neighbors. Adding a professional caregiver, who is trained in Alzheimer’s care, to the team to help with your loved one’s personal care, meal preparation, medication reminders and housekeeping can provide much needed respite for family caregivers, as well as social and mental engagement for your loved one.

Join Linda Lundeen, 2019 West Region CAREGiver of the Year, to learn more about when and how to introduce home care into your loved one’s caregiving plan. Linda will share what families can expect from a professionally trained Alzheimer’s caregiver, tips for a smooth transition, and various funding options to pay for home care.
