November is National Family Caregivers Month, with this year’s theme, “Caregiving Around the Clock”, holding special significance to those caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or related dementia.
- The stress of caregiving for persons with dementia has been shown to impact a person’s immune system for up to three years after their caregiving ends, increasing their chances of developing a chronic illness themselves.
- Among the largest causes of stress for these caregivers is fear of the person they care for wandering and becoming lost, with 60% of those afflicted becoming lost at least once, and 70% of those becoming lost 3 or more times during the progression of the disease. There are currently more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, projected to more than triple, to more than 16 million, by 2050.
GTX Corp is committed to supporting caregivers, of those both living at home and in senior housing communities, by providing “peace of mind” technology through the GPS SmartSole, the world’s first and only, patented insole-based GPS tracking system.
If you know a family caregiver, please extend an extra “helping hand” in recognition of National Family Caregivers Month. Whether a meal or an offer to provide supervision while they enjoy an evening out, they deserve a chance to refresh and renew as they give of themselves to help others.
Thank you to family caregivers this month and every day for all you do!
