Membership Enables Further Education on Caregiving for Those with Dementia.
DETROIT — ComForCare and At Your Side Home Care, franchised providers of in-home caregiving services, are new members of The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA). They join AFA’s national network of member organizations with the goal of providing nationwide support, services and education to individuals, families and caregivers affected by dementia.
“Our relationship with the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America will accelerate our efforts to help individuals with dementia-related diseases,” said Sean Kajcienski, COO of Best Life Brands. “We launched our DementiaWiseⓇ program six years ago after seeing a real need for our clients and their caregivers to get stronger tools and support for managing dementia.”
“AFA works closely with our member organizations to help those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and connect them with programs, services and support,” said Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr., AFA’s president and chief executive officer. “We are excited to welcome ComForCare to our member network and look forward to having them work with us to help people living with Alzheimer’s.”
ComForCare is part of Best Life Brands, a family of companies focused on the well-being of clients at any stage of life. The multi-brand organization also includes CarePatrol, the nation’s largest senior placement organization, and Blue Moon Estate Sales, the nation’s industry-leading estate sales franchise brand.
AFA works hand in hand with its member organizations to provide resources to families affected by Alzheimer’s, especially through its National Toll-Free Helpline (866-232-8484) where licensed social workers can connect callers with services in their area.
