Community News

Every year, Springpoint at Home participates in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This year our walk is Saturday, September 23, 2023. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s takes place in over 600 communities nationwide from September through November and is the largest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.

We walk because we know and work with families who are impacted by this disease. It is important for us to help advance research towards methods of prevention, treatment, and a cure. It is important for us to help reduce the risk of dementia with our clients through the promotion of brain health.

Over the past several years, new drugs have been approved by the FDA that offer a slowing down of the process for up to 18 months. But these work only with individuals in the early/mild stage of the disease. Given that there is an estimated 55 million people worldwide living with dementia, and more than 6 million with Alzheimer’s in the United States alone, there is still much to be done.

Research and advocacy to improve the lives of those affected by Alzheimer’s are critical components of the Alzheimer’s Association’s work. But given that there are over 11 million people in the United States who provide unpaid care to family members, it is important to know about the support the Association offers to those affected by this progressive brain disease (and those who care for them).

The Alzheimer’s Association provides:

· A free 24/7 helpline (800.272.3900), staffed by masters-level clinicians and specialists, which provides confidential support and information to all those affected in over 200 languages.

· A website,, which is a rich resource designed to inform and educate multiple audiences, including those living with the disease, caregivers, and professional health care providers.

· Online and face-to-face support groups and education programs in communities nationwide. The Association also ensures that these services reach underserved populations.

· The Alzheimer’s Association & AARP Community Resource Finder, a comprehensive database of dementia and aging-related resources, which makes it easy for families to find programs and services.

· Help for individuals to receive an accurate and timely diagnosis, improve access to care. The Association also provides tools for clinicians, including continuing medical education and a cognitive assessment toolkit.

Caring for someone with a memory impairment requires a support team. Let Springpoint at Home be part of your team. Our Certified Home Health Aids will help with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), offer companionship to the person with dementia, and give the caregiver opportunities for respite. Our Aging Life Care Advisors™/Care Managers can help with Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs) like shopping, making calls, and doctor visits while serving as another set of eyes and ears.

Caregivers are not meant to do this alone. Let Springpoint at Home support you. To learn more about how we can help, sign up for a complimentary consultation at
