Free services for Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

The Alzheimer's Association in Vermont says there are about 11,000 Vermonters suffering from the disease and that number could grow to 20,000 by the year 2025. Meanwhile, it tends to be family members who care for these people and it's unlikely that they have had any training on what to do.

Patrice Thabault is with Home Instead Senior Care in South Burlington. She talked about Alzheimer's and some free services available to patients and their caregivers.
