When taking care of a loved one, the toll upon caregivers can often be unforeseen. The daily duties and attention that your loved one requires can weigh on an individual. About 14.3% of adults in the U.S. have been a caretaker to adults age 50+ in the past year, and according to an AARP report. At Private Home Care, we understand and empathize with this situation. We want you to know that we are here to support you and guide you through this difficult process.

Omega-3 is a fatty acid commonly found in fish and fish oil supplements. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to the development and function of the brain. Healthy fats like omega-3 are an important part of maintaining brain cell structure feeding into the myelin sheath around the brain. Along with helping in the prevention of Alzheimer’s, omega-3 has also shown to lower mental decline as well as lower the chances of dementia and stroke risks. With Alzheimer’s awareness month in November, it’s important to be thinking about ways to keep your brain healthy.
