There is no known cause of the disease and no cure is available. It is an illness that cannot be reversed or altered, loved ones can only watch in a state of hopelessness and despair as the quality of life is drained from a parent, spouse or elder family member. Caregivers suppress feelings of rage as well as confusion, they simply don’t know where to turn, what to do….or how to cope. At AFC they aid the caregiver. The Center understands the requirements of this age group; they know the effects of aging, the limitations of their ability to function without proper assistance and support.
