Scientists at Stanford have discovered that a protein called C1q, which is known as the initiator of the immune response, is now linked to degenerative brain diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and many others.  The full story can be found here.

Having cared for many clients who suffer from these debilitating diseases, we are greatly encouraged by this groundbreaking discovery.  Everyone in the family suffers along with the loved ones who are slowly losing their brain function.  

At Caring Hands Caregivers, the training of our caregivers is personal to the person they are caring for.  We take the time to get to know the person who has the disease and the who they used to be in the prime of their lives.  We also get to know the family to get a 360-degree understanding.  The more we learn the better able we are to help with the challenges that come with this journey.
