In the United States alone, there are currently more than five million people who are living with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Also known as dementia, AD is a progressive and often devastating deterioration of a person’s thinking and memory functions. Alzheimer’s Disease is not a part of normal aging, and typically causes a steady decline in memory, thinking and behavior. This can worsen to the extent that the person can no longer safely function independently. That’s why at Providence Care, we strive to provide people living with AD in the Dorchester County, SC area with the best care possible.
