Home Instead Senior Care Founder and Chairman Paul Hogan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease International Conference
 
Omaha, Nebraska – As the Alzheimer’s disease epidemic rages on, the shortage of caregivers and lack of assistance for family members continues to grow.  Paul Hogan, Founder and Chairman of Home Instead Senior Care®, will explore the challenges families face when caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease and offer insights on global solutions to support them as they begin the caregiving journey.
 
Hogan’s speech will be part of Dementia: Working Together for a Global Solution, the 29th International Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI), which will be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, May 1-4, 2014.  Following Hogan’s speech, Marc Wortmann, Executive Director for ADI, will lead a panel discussion on care delivery around the world.
 
According to the World Alzheimer Report 2013, 13 percent of people aged 60 and over require long-term care, and between 2010 and 2050, the number of seniors with care needs will nearly triple from 101 to 277 million.  Furthermore, about half of all older people who need personal care have dementia.  The report states that more attention needs to be paid to maintaining and enhancing quality of life; helping those affected, and their families to ‘live well with dementia’.
 
Upon the release of the report, Wortmann, said: “We need to value those that provide frontline care for people with dementia. This includes paid, as well as unpaid family caregivers, who share much in common. Governments need to acknowledge the role of caregivers and ensure that there are policies in place to support them.”
 
Home Instead Senior Care provides support services – assistance with activities of daily living, personal care, medication reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands, incidental transportation and shopping as well as specialized Alzheimer’s care – which enable older adults to live safely and comfortably in their own homes for as long as possible.
 
“Home Instead is committed to supporting people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers,” said Hogan.  “We are working with Alzheimer’s Disease International to discover the best ways to care for people with Alzheimer's until there is a cure for this horrible disease.”
 
In addition to its work with Alzheimer’s Disease International, Home Instead is currently engaged with The Global CEO Initiative on Alzheimer’s Disease, The Global Coalition on Aging, the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council on Ageing and the first G8 summit dedicated to coordinating a global response to Alzheimer’s.
