Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are difficult to live with. It’s life-changing for the individual, and it’s life-changing for family and friends of the loved one. But there is good news – there is a strong community of researchers and specialists dedicated to the memory care community, and there are many educational opportunities for families – the ultimate care- givers. Memory Care of Little Rock at Good Shepherd is committed to education, and has partnerships with gerontologists, universities, neurologists, research groups and a caregiver network, all in an effort to create a specialized model of care for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Memory Care of Little Rock at Good Shepherd is committed to helping educate caregivers so that they have the latest knowledge and tools for living with these diseases. Our website is built to educate, loaded with the latest tip of the week and an ongoing video series on subjects like “The Importance of Avoiding Falls,” and “Insights for Cargivers: Caring for Dementia.” Our goal is to help anyone affected by Alzheimer’s/dementia and memory loss with information to live a more complete life, for the loved one and for the caregiver.
Additionally, seminars series, our community lobby libraries, educational videos, brochures and our caregiver tip of the week represent our commitment to helping everyone learn about the best caregiver practices.
