What is Dementia?

About dementia

Dementia is not a specific disease. It's an overall term that describes a group of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person's ability to perform everyday activities. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of cases. Vascular dementia, which occurs after a stroke, is the second most common dementia type. But there are many other conditions that can cause symptoms of dementia, including some that are reversible, such as thyroid problems and vitamin deficiencies.

Dementia is often incorrectly referred to as "senility" or "senile dementia," which reflects the formerly widespread but incorrect belief that serious mental decline is a normal part of aging


WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT.ORG

A HOLISTIC APPROACH

By the time a homeless woman turns to us for help, she has lost almost everything. Being homeless is traumatizing; being homeless while raising children, escaping domestic violence, looking for work, or struggling with addiction can shatter her spirit.

Women’s Empowerment is a holistic program that responds to the unique needs of each woman who is homeless.

Through classes, counseling, career mentoring and peer support, she gains the tools to rebuild her life. On-site childcare in our Child Development Center and other supportive services are offered in a safe, nurturing environment where each woman and her family are treated with respect.

A PLACE IN THE COMMUNITY

At Women’s Empowerment, we believe each woman can be the author – and the hero – of her own life. While she may enroll to become job-ready and financially independent, what she reclaims if her dignity, inner strength, and her place in her community. She discovers her empowered voice and becomes the author of her future,. Most importantly, she regains something life-changing and vital: her hope.

THE IMPACT

Women and children are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population. Helping each woman achieve self-reliance is the best long-term solution to this shocking fact. Employment is often the critical missing piece for many homeless women trying to get back on their feet. This program helps women re-enter the workforce because we know a job is more than a paycheck. A job provides stability, safety and health for women and their children. And, as we know, when you teach a mother to fish, her family will eat for generations.
