Please join us this month to acknowledge people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. We salute their loved ones and caregivers as well. As an agency providing care for older adults, we know the great toll that Alzheimer’s takes on individuals and families, and we understand the intense feelings of loss and helplessness they experience. Though there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, CJE can help individuals and their loved ones by educating, providing support and care, and managing transitions.
CJE is active in the community and professional arena, often participating in presentations and events and partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association and educational institutions. CJE also has a rich history of academic research on Alzheimer’s disease.
Currently, CJE’s Leonard Schanfield Research Institute is contracted to evaluate Chicago’s Chinese American Service League’s Alzheimer’s Disease Program Initiative that is developing a dementia-capable system for the local Chinese American community.
The professional Care Managers of Your Eldercare Consultants are experienced in the distinct needs of Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers. They can provide consultations and referrals and arrange care along the full spectrum of the dementia journey. Our Adult Day Services-Evanston (temporarily relocated to Skokie) and Adult Day Services-Deerfield are in the process of reopening (following COVID-19 protocols) to provide individuals with early memory loss a place to socialize during the day and participate in art therapy, exercise, and other activities. We also provide 24-hour residential care at Weinberg Community’s Friend Center for Memory Care.
Please call 773.508.1000 cje.net to see how CJE can help with care management, day programs, residential care, and respite care for persons with Alzheimer’s and other dementias and their loved ones. Counseling is also available.
