Look for warning signs of Alzheimer's during the holidays
The holiday season is a time families gather and spend quality time with loved ones. It is also a time that can raise questions about memory loss issues with aging family members. If you are concerned about changes in a loved one, make an appointment with his/her primary care provider.

If you can no longer safely care for your loved one with Alzheimer’s at home, St. Benedict’s Senior Community is here to help. We are advocates for seniors living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Our staff cares deeply about giving each memory care resident a voice and providing communication techniques to their loved ones. Our staff is honored to be an extension of your family. A tradition to trust!
