More than 35 hundred participants turned out this past Saturday to help raise money for Alzheimer’s research. At Home Care Solution, one of only three local home care companies certified by the Alzheimer’s Association for dementia care, was proud to be a Bronze corporate sponsor of the event.
The Walk to End Alzheimer’s, held in Balboa Park, was a big success according to organizers with the San Diego/Imperial chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Alzheimer’s is now the sixth leading cause of death in the county and the third leading cause of death in San Diego. Roughly 53,000 San Diegans are living with Alzheimer’s. In California more than 588,000 people are believed to be living with Alzheimer’s.
At Home Care Solution founder and C.E.O. Lauren Reynolds joined Betsy Evatt, care manager with Senior Care Management to provide information about in-home care and health advocacy.
At Home Care Solution provides quality hourly and live-in care for people with varying medical, social and psychological needs.
Senior Care Management, run social workers with decades of experience in geriatric care, provides coordination of care including medical issues and appointments, safety assessments and referrals.
