Memory intervention program helps Alzheimer's and dementia patients and
families regain what was once lost
CLEVELAND, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 5.2 million Americans, including 250,000 Ohioans, struggle with the devastating effects of Alzheimer's disease. Now, a new program being unveiled in the greater Cleveland area offers new hope to Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers.
Franchise offices in Akron/Fairlawn, Beachwood and Lorain County/Western Cuyahoga have become certified to offer the pioneering Pathways to Memory(TM) program, which will treat patients in northeastern Ohio affected by Alzheimer's and other forms of memory impairment diseases.
Pathways to Memory is a customized, one-on-one memory enhancement intervention that has been shown to improve memory and slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Three Homewatch CareGivers franchises in the Northeast Ohio are now offering this promising new program for Alzheimer's patients.
"We want to show that through the Pathways program, patients can improve their cognitive skills and don't have to leave their home or assisted living facility; they can stay where they are at their current level of care," said President of Homewatch CareGivers Leann Reynolds. "We are excited to be able to provide this proven program to the Ohio facilities, the residents and their families."
The program was developed by professional memory care specialist Ann Marie Doetterl and is offered by select Homewatch CareGivers locations nationwide.
Homewatch CareGivers franchises provide temporary and long-term home care to clients of all ages, including child care. Northeast Ohio is one of the select areas that offers the Pathways to Memory program.
