Resource support

Front line: Aging in place and support for caregivers


Alaska has the fastest growing elderly population per capita, with people age 60 and older accounting for 19.5% of the state. It is estimated that there are nearly 8,500 older people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. Our lucky seniors are supported by caregivers who often suffer from a lack of resources and support. Occupational therapists can provide much-needed services to enable our seniors to age with dignity in their homes and provide support for caregivers.
