When a loved one is affected by or diagnosed with dementia-related memory loss, including Alzheimer’s disease, family members may feel conflicted about seeking professional help, especially if the person is in otherwise good health. However, if hygiene, independence and safety issues begin to threaten an Elder’s health and well-being, it is the responsibility of a loved one to take the next step.

Tabitha offers a full range of support services and living communities to care for those with memory loss and give their loved ones peace of mind.
