According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there are 5.7 million Americans currently living with Alzheimer’s. This disease slowly affects the memory, thinking capabilities, and behavior of an individual and gets worse with time. At New Generations, we’re proud to support Alzheimer’s Awareness month and offer Alzheimer’s day care to individuals in South Carolina.
If you have a loved one with Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), our Charleston Autism care is a great place for them to learn, grow, and have fun.

At our elderly care center, we know it’s important for individuals at any age to eat healthy and get plenty of exercise, but it’s especially important for those who are elderly. As we get older, our bodies begin to wear down and lose their resilience, which means we need to take extra care of them. Encourage your elderly loved one to eat right and exercise regularly to help them maintain their health.

There are several differences between the two issues and here, our adult day care company shares the things you should know about both.
Did you know that 80% of seniors take a least one medication per day, and many take three or more?
