It’s hard to believe that 2012 is about to come to a close. And while we have a lot of great things to look forward to in the months ahead, it’s important to reflect on all of the great advancements that have happened within the past 365 days. So California Home For Seniors has decided to offer you a fast and easy breakdown.
In the world of Alzheimer’s Disease, there was a tremendous amount of progress made in 2012. Just last month, the L.A. Times published a fascinating story about a new psoriasis drug that may have the power to combat memory loss. Granted it’s still in the testing stages, but it offers a tremendous amount of hope for those suffering.
Additionally, this year’s Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to two stem cell scientists who are in the midst of creating genetic therapies that can fight Alzheimer’s, diabetes and several auto-immune diseases.
Another big perk that was revealed this year had to do with senior longevity. As we mentioned in a previous blog post, octogenarians are becoming much more common, which means there’s a very good chance that your loved ones can thrive well beyond their 100th birthday.
And one more big advantage to being a senior in this day and age is the massive amount of care resources that are now available. In California, there are some fantastic options and we’ve gone the extra mile to pinpoint top notch facilities throughout the Golden State. Take a look at our revamped site and you’ll see options ranging from northern Alameda County to the southern tip of Chula Vista and everything in between.
We’d love to talk to you about all of the advancements happening in your local community. And we’re actually just a phone call away. Get in touch with California Home for Seniors via email or our toll-free number for a list of the latest exciting updates in senior care.
