Zicharon has been a lifesaver for our grandmother suffering from dementia.
Zicharon is a not for profit organization catering to the special needs of Orthodox Jewish families suffering the devastating upheaval caused by Dementia/Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s Disease is a degenerative illness that unfortunately has no cure at this time. At Zicharon we provide families with information on how to live with the disease, to help ease the pain of both patient and caregiver. We understand the unique issues affecting heimishe dementia patients; obstacles involved in going to shul, Shabbos, Yom Tov etc. Zicharon offers extensive information regarding safety, homecare, Medicaid applications, tracking devices and other services that can benefit Dementia patients and their families.
