Indeed, Alzheimer is one other. And you could almost say that this gentleman is omnipotent in the sense that thousands of men and women across the country are living with him. Or are the numbers higher. Are they running in the hundreds of thousands? One would need to check with the US Surgeon General or related health sciences boards’ statistical review charts. Nevertheless. Dr. Alzheimer is the gentleman who discovered this degenerative disease.
It is generally referred to as an age-related disease in the sense that it usually afflicts men and women of a senior or advanced age, say, in the seventies. But tragically perhaps, it has been known to afflict men and women at a younger age. Parkinson’s is yet another one of those degenerative diseases that tend to afflict men and women of senior age. Alzheimers assisted living draper centers are, thankfully, helping those said men and women.
Because once these diseases take its toll on them, once it reaches its advanced stages, such men and women are no longer able to live independently and with dignity. That is to say that they were left to their own devices. Thankfully, not. The assisted living centers are providing them with all the necessary care and attention that they require. It would also have been too much to expect of loving and caring families.
Such families would have been more than willing to take care of the matrons and patrons of their families. But the stress, strain and trauma would have been too much. And although their mothers, fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers are neurologically impaired, it may still be possible that such seniors will recognize the strain. And that would not have been healthy. Better then for them to be better cared for at these centers.
