Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregiving Services Syracuse

CompanionPillBox400When a parent or senior loved one begins to display signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, it can be a devastating time for the family. Caring for someone with a cognitive disorder comes with a unique set of challenges that must be met with patience, love, and acceptance, and often respite care or other home care services are needed to help family members rest and provide the care and attention their loved ones need.

At At Home Independent Living, we have a unique understanding of the emotional strain that Alzheimer’s can put on family caregivers. We are lucky to have Mike Massurin, former Director of Services for the Syracuse Alzheimer’s Association chapter on our care team. Mike serves as At Home Independent Living’s Director of Client & Dementia Services and provides Alzheimer’s and dementia care education and training to community members.
