Dementia and Family Expectations: How to Navigate the Journey
Expert care comes from experience. At ComfortCare Homes, we are more than caregivers, dedicated to providing personal care through all stages of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. We are also knowledgeable guides, helping families find medical and financial resources, discuss tough choices, and establish a care plan for all stages of the disease. We’re here to help you find a path forward that works best for you and your family.
Robert Miller, Senior Vice President of Company Development, experienced the challenges and joys of being a full-time caregiver long before joining ComfortCare Homes. “I personally cared for my last living grandmother for eight years,” he says. “Although she was not diagnosed with dementia, the experience gives me great empathy for others navigating this journey.”
While everyone is unique and dementia affects people—and families—differently, Miller says there are common milestones along the journey and offers helpful advice for how to be prepared for each step.
