Alzheimer’s or Dementia

By Carolyn M. Scofield |

What comes to mind when you hear someone you know has Alzheimer’s or Dementia?

It breaks my heart, as it reminds me of childhood!

My great-grandparents, who raised me until I was 9 years old, were victims.
Charles (Pop), diagnosed with Alzheimer’s when I was 9 and June Scofield (Mama), diagnosed with Dementia when I was 27.

The disease robbed their identity & ALL of the beautiful memories we shared.  Then placed in a nursing home, where they lived until the age of 87.
Pop passed away when I was 20 (11/21/97) and Mama passed away when I was 33 (11/02/10).

In honor of my beloved parents, my mission is to educate & provide my community with aging in place solutions, allowing others a better quality of life than my folks had.  My goal is to assist those who suffer from these debilitating illness & the caregivers who care for them.

According to the Alzheimer’s organization, “People with Alzheimer’s can live in their homes, as long as safety measures are in place. As Alzheimer’s progresses, a person’s abilities change. With some creativity and problem solving, we can adapt the home environment to support these changes.”

Let’s work together to keep our loved ones safe in our communities!
