New partnership announced



Someone to Stand by Yoe

Helping dementia patients at end-of-life

he staff of JHCN recently met with members of the Alzheimer's Association to estab-
lish an alliance which will provide optimum care for Jewish patients with end-stage
Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Approximately 33 percent of our
current patients have some form of dementia. In light of a growing elderly population, the
incidence of Alzheimer's disease and dementia is expected to steadily increase, and JHCN is
making every effort to prepare for that eventuality.
In addition to finding new ways to meet the needs of Jewish patients with dementia, this
partnership will provide in-service education for its staff and joint programming to the gen-
eral public to increase awareness about all forms of dementia and how to obtain help.
For more information on the Alzheimer's Association of Michigan and its work with
JHCN, contact Marcia Mittelman, Director of Education, at (248) 351-0280. ■
