What We Do.

VOLUNTEERING SERVICES

Volunteers spend their time playing music, talking, serving food, directing games, and a variety of other activities that provide immense relief for caregivers and immense joy for senior citizens. Children and teens must be more educated and understanding about dementia as they often notice subtle changes in the family members early on. One of the ways we accomplish this through consistent volunteering at local living facilities every weekend. DementiAid has logged in over 1,300 hrs of community service thus far.

DISTRIBUTION OF NURSING HOME SUPPLIES

Since the burden of the disease falls most heavily upon caregivers, whether in-home or at living facilities, empowering caregivers by providing them with support, emotionally and financially, is incredibly important. It is well known that the heavy burden of care is taken on by caregivers in the managing of the daily concerns of persons with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Therefore, resources for caregivers and patients must need to be easily accessible and publicized. Additionally, people should look to donate whatever money they can to living facilities. 

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

There must be an increase in public awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and its prevalence throughout all sectors of the community, from the general public, especially young adults, to healthcare professionals. Care visits must be encouraged, including regular cognitive impairment assessments. Additionally, there must be a more accepting understanding of a person's behavior with dementia with regard to acting out in public. Children and teens need to be educated and cognizant about dementia as they often notice subtle changes in the family members early on. Moreover, DementiAid aims to reach out to funding organizations such as the BrookylnHomes Foundation for Aged Men to provide financial support for our cause.
