Working in Home Health Care in Indianapolis, one of our jobs for our top-rated Care Advisors is providing the tools you need to assure you friend or loved one is staying at home for as long as possible. With the medical community in agreement that the best care possible for those with dementia-related illnesses is to optimize quality of life and happiness, we work tirelessly to achieve this in a number of ways.

In addition to our Nostalgia Program, which aims to increase happiness and quality of life of a friend or loved with Alzheimer’s by focusing on their passions and reigniting the hobbies, jobs, and memories they hold onto so dearly, it is also important to make sure you have a plan for your home. Providing a safe and easily-accessible home is one of the best ways to assure your friend or loved with dementia-related illness stays happy and healthy.

Sometimes, it’s the little things you can do that can make a difference immediately. Like clearing hallways and exits around the home, or making sure that everything that is a necessity can be easily found and reached. Sometimes, it’s making sure that items that cause happiness can be used. Can the TV be easily managed? The radio? Etc.

WebMD has a great article of over twenty items you should be aware of when preparing a home for a loved one with dementia. These, seemingly small things, can go a big way in assuring your friend or loved one stays happy and healthy.

Of course, being the leader in At Home and Senior Care in Indianapolis, we at Alliance Home Health Care, and our Alliance Care Advisors are here to help. With over twenty years experience in Home Health Care, our Care Advisors can provide you with the detailed road maps, and quality care to keep your friend or loved one as happy and healthy as possible in their own home.

One Inspiring Walk To End Alzheimer’s Story

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Bill Glass of Chicago is like many heroes out there who decided to participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s during World Alzheimer’s month in September. Except for one thing, Bill embarked on his journey in Chicago, but he has no plans on stopping until he reaches Atlanta, GA. That’s 720 miles of walking, all to help raise awareness during World Alzheimer’s Month.

Bill has a mother with Alzheimer’s, and after seeing first hand the effects of the disease, Bill decided that he needed to do something to help raise support and awareness. And what better way to do that during World Alzheimer’s Month, than to take on the ultimate Walk To End Alzheimer’s.

Bill is hoping to raise $10,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association during his walk, but is also using the walk to help others learn about Alzheimer’s and how they can help. He plans to speak with as many people and politicians as possible, and hopefully use his walk as an inspiration to ignite others to work together to fight the disease.

After all, as Bill writes on his official AlzStars page, we’re all in this together:

“I’m walking to support Mom and all she has done for me. With everything she has done and gone through in her life for her family, friends, and everyones lives she has touched. I am also walking to support you and ALL people and families suffering from Alzheimer’s to let them know they are not walking this path alone. I am walking with them.”

As the leading Home Health Care provider in Indianapolis, Indiana, we at Alliance Home Health Care are pulling for Bill. We not only work our hardest, every day, in improving the lives at home of friends and loved one’s with Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related illnesses, but we strive to help the community as well in raising awareness of this disease. While, currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, we feel comfort in knowing there’s people like Bill out there, and proud that every step he takes, is one towards a cure.

If you are in the Indianapolis area, and would like to participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the event date for our city is Oct, 13 at Military park. Visit the Alzheimer’s Association of Indiana’s website for more details. We’ll have some team members participating, so if you see us, say hi.
