Meaningful Dementia Care
Currently, 55 million people worldwide are living with dementia.
In the United States alone, nearly 13 million people are affected by the disease.
Here, in Michigan, the number of people will soon surpass 200,000.
As the aging population continues to grow, the demand for dementia care will, too. But, the need for quality care goes beyond the halls of hospitals.
Already, more than 11 million Americans provide care to loved ones living with dementia.
Whether family, friends or neighbors, these caregivers spend an average of 5 hours per day helping those living with brain change get through the day.
Holland Home is here to help ease the burden, through expanding dementia care services, providing home care assistance, respite for unpaid caregivers, and educating the larger community on how to interact with and care for those living with dementia.
