Professional Caregiver vs. Family Care Provider

If a close relative or spouse takes on the role of main caregiver while still retaining their regular employment, they are placed a under a great amount of stress. The situation can become overwhelming when the family member is not trained or experienced with the needs of someone suffering from Alzheimer's disease or Dementia. Having a professional Home Care Provider or Caregiver assisting your family for even one day or a few hours weekly can give the family caregiver a much needed respite.

Famous People Diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease

Examples of prominent people who developed Alzheimer's are the actor Charlton Heston, the actress Rita Hayworth, and the novelist Terry Pratchett. Former United States President Ronald Reagan and Irish writer Iris Murdoch were also diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Both were the subjects of scientific articles examining how their cognitive capacities deteriorated with the disease. Other notable cases include Harold Wilson (United Kingdom) and Adolfo Suárez (Spain).

AD has also been portrayed in films such as: Away from Her (2006), based on Alice Munro's short story "The Bear Came Over the Mountain"; The Notebook (2004), based on Nicholas Sparks' 1996 novel of the same name and Iris (2001), based on John Bayley's memoir of his wife Iris Murdoch.
